We’ve all heard it before: establishing a data-driven culture is at the heart of any successful organization trying to drive business value from data. This shift has to be done carefully and gradually through changing of behaviors rather than changing control — moving progressively along the analytic maturity curve.
When it comes to modernization in Business Intelligence (BI) — the way businesses gather and leverage multiple data points to derive insights that guide decisions for business success — agile and forward-thinking companies are using Microsoft Azure and the Power BI suite of tools. But implementing a successful BI environment that manages day-to-day reporting needs, navigates across siloed operations and behaviors, and drives actionable insights continues to be demanding on remote teams in this evolving BI environment.
What is Power BI?
Power BI is a robust, self-service business analytics service created by Microsoft. It’s a model-based suite of reporting tools that was created with the business user’s needs in mind. Through interactive visualizations and advanced business intelligence capabilities, Microsoft's service empowers businesses to create their own reports and dashboards to unlock more value from their data.
Anyone can download Power BI Desktop for free and create compelling visuals on report pages. Paying for the license allows you to share and collaborate on your reports and dashboards with your end users and teammates.
Why Power BI + Insight
There are many reports out there that provide insights from data…but if the insights aren’t actionable in a clear and tangible way that aligns with business objectives, then they are worthless. To achieve actionable insights from the available data, a business needs careful governance and development strategies to help create actionable reports that align with the organization’s vision to ultimately meet customers’ needs.
Deploying Power BI can be a complex task that requires strong planning and strategy to ensure security, governance, and user adoption, and to guarantee optimal business value. Insight helps organizations leverage the strengths and features of Power BI while addressing the gaps and challenges that can arise when implementing BI modernization across their organizations with the Power BI Workshop.
Insight’s Power BI Workshop delivers guidance for optimizing your Power BI investment, helping organizations to align BI configuration with the current data estate and to provide actionable insights in alignment with business goals, with the overarching goal to grow the organization’s analytic maturity to better serve customers.
