What is Power BI?
Power BI is an interactive tool from Microsoft for business intelligence and data visualisation, specially developed for end users. The program connects to hundreds of data sources. You can then easily create reports and dashboards with the data yourself, without the support of the IT department.
More and more companies want to work in a data-driven way. In other words, make better decisions based on data, instead of gut feeling. This is possible thanks to Power BI. You can also integrate Power BI with other programs and applications, such as Excel.
Power BI consists of:
- Power BI Desktop, a Windows desktop application
- An online SaaS service (Software as a Service)
- Power BI mobile apps
