Power BI is on a continuous journey to make data analytics more accessible and integrative to business operations for enterprises and SMEs markets. The latest enhanced features launched this July broaden its accessibility to both end-users and professional data analysts.
Here are the recent developments that make Power BI easier to implement and use.
Power BI is built as a self-service tool with enterprise-grade features and capabilities that include the ability to build insightful reports and streamline the executive decision-making process. It offers a stable and consistent experience for repeated reporting.
The application is fast expanding its reach to C-level and financial executives to become a meaningful part of enterprise BI reporting, together with the ability to share reporting data. The recent addition of paginated reports allows for optimised report printing.
It means building and managing reports has become easier and scalable, with reduced manual intervention for accessing data from sources such as Excel and Dynamics 365, thanks to tools such as the Common Data Model, the Common Data Service and Dataflows.
Power BI is a suite of business analytics tools that deliver insights throughout your organization. Connect to hundreds of data sources, simplify data prep, and drive ad hoc analysis. Produce beautiful reports, then publish them for your organization to consume on the web and across mobile devices. Everyone can create personalized dashboards with a unique, 360-degree view of their business. And scale across the enterprise, with governance and security built-in.
A new feature called dataflows acts like a data query process in the cloud, allowing businesses to build data warehouses online, which saves time, money and resources on having to build the warehousing infrastructure on-premises.
Dataflows also help extract data into dataflows for easy, consistent consumption in Power BI reports. The ultimate goal of dataflows is to automate the Power BI end-to-end process, from extracting data to analytics and reporting.
Businesses moving to the cloud can now use dataflows together with the Common Data Service to bring cloud-based access to their data.
