Microsoft Power BI: What is it and it’s Capabilities
Capabilities: Making Power BI an essential for your business
The capabilities of Power BI make it an integral tool for your business.
1. Connect self-service and enterprise analytics
Power BI enables you to unify both your self-service and enterprise data analytics needs on a single platform. You now have the power to access powerful semantic models, have access to an application lifecycle management (ALM) toolkit, and an open connectivity framework, as well as being able to generate fixed-layout, pixel-perfect paginated reports.
2. Accelerate big data preparation with Azure
When dealing with large volumes of data, simplification is a must.
By using a no-limits Azure data lake, you can dramatically reduce the time it takes to get insights and quickly increase collaboration between business analysts, data engineers and data scientists.
3. Access industry-leading AI
Do you need answers fast? There’s no time to waste when it comes to pulling insights from your data. Power BI is your perfect data partner, enabling you to take advantage of the latest advances in Microsoft AI.
What this means for your organisation is that the power of data is available to anyone. Non-data scientists can prepare data, build machine learning models, and find insights from both structured and unstructured data. This includes both text and images.
4. Enjoy unparalleled Excel integration
Is Excel an essential in your organisation? Power BI works with and slots into your existing ways of working.
