In Rocky’s previous blog, he discussed Microsoft’s Power Platform with the main components of Power BI, Pages, Apps, Automate, and Virtual Agents. Now let us dig deeper and discuss each of these components independently.
So let us start with Power BI.
What is Power BI?
A business analytics service provided by Microsoft, which is a visually self-service-based tool for reporting, aggregating, splicing, and displaying data in a visually appealing way that makes sense to your employees and customers while amplifying your insights. That says a lot!
It will deliver fresh understandings, where end users can create and modify data reports and dashboards and easily share them securely across applications without your IT staff or Db administrator’s involvement. It will provide a new view for richer visions by using familiar tools such as Microsoft Excel to move from building to analyzing to presenting, all with fewer data formulations.
Power BI allows you to quickly start building reports and dashboards with complimentary online learning assets and tutorials that you can distribute across to your teams. Simply put, it makes you look good by helping you build fancy charts and reports.
Power BI will help you explore and interpret data, drive conclusions, increase competence, and cut costs by:
- Delivering easy-to-understand insights to on-the-go executives and busy decision makers.
- Creating actionable sales and marketing intelligence from a complex mix of data sources.
- See data visuals in action.
- Enabling you to spend less time searching for data and more time generating and sharing actionable insights.
- Helping you collaborate with others to make quick, confident decisions driven by real-time data.
- Get started quickly with hundreds of visuals. Visualize your data in seconds with an extensive library of data visualizations.
- Browse many more in AppSource. Each visual has been evaluated and approved by Microsoft to integrate seamlessly with Power BI and provide valuable insights.
- Connect all your data sources with the scale to analyze, share, and promote insights across your organization while maintaining data accuracy, consistency, and security.
Will It Integrate?
It’s Microsoft, of course.
As with any app designed for the Power Platform, the Power BI app will interact and talk to all other apps seamlessly. You can have a Power App that has a Power Virtual Agent associated with it, that triggers a Power Automate flow based upon the outcome of a conversation, and then that outcome can be displayed on a Power BI report that is embedded into the website you built with Power Pages.
Now that you know Power BI can easily connect to and visualize your data, creating memorable reports personalized with your KPIs and brand. Where you can get fast, AI-powered answers to your business questions—even when asking with conversational language. For what are you waiting?
