As well as this, this business intelligence tool is very flexible as it can easily interact with all kinds of data source, no matter whether it is in the Cloud, on-premises or stored on an Excel spreadsheet.
In this blog article, we will provide you with 5 benefits on how to take advantage of Power BI in 2023.
The ability to deploy many dashboards through Power BI apps
It goes without saying but the majority of businesses need many Power BI dashboards and reports to cover all their reporting requirements. This is where Power BI apps can help as they enable Power BI pro users to easily deploy dashboards and reports that have been built and sent out to the whole business, teams or even specific departments.
Allows analysis and big data sharing
By using a combination of Power BI and Microsoft Azure will give you the opportunity to be able to process vast quantities of data whilst at the same time reducing the time required to gain valuable insights. This would also lead to better cooperation between the different types of analysts in your business.
Regular new features & functionality
Like with most Microsoft products, these are updated every month and this is no different when it comes to Power BI where in the community forum, users are able to request certain things. Microsoft listens to these and puts into action the most popular ones. Furthermore, Microsoft goes on to add that users will always have the latest new and improved features enabling them to make more accurate, data-driven decisions.
Eliminate the need for specialist support
The great thing about Power BI is the fact that it is very much a self-service business intelligence. You don’t require any technical or IT employees to run, analyse or create reports. As well as this, it provides a natural language interface and utilises graphic design tools. Better still, the drag-and-drop functionality makes it very easy for you to create dashboards with just a few clicks. This helps to demonstrate how Power BI is extremely user-friendly and fully accessible to anyone without any technical knowledge or know-how.
Seamless integration with Microsoft Excel
It is a known fact that most businesses use Excel a hell of a lot for both analytics as well as reporting. Power BI can come in handy for businesses that decide to stand by Excel as it will enable them to connect queries, data models and reports to Power BI dashboards and create visualisations which already have access to the data needed to create them.
