Microsoft Power BI Explained

Power BI is a business intelligence solution, built by Microsoft, that provides a way to create reports and dashboards using data from different business apps. The tool is comprised of connectors and software services, allowing you to connect hundreds of different software apps in order to gain insight into your business where you previously couldn’t.

Business data can come from hundreds of sources, from an Excel sheet on your computer, to Xero in the cloud or an app that lives on a server in your office or an app that lives in Azure. Power BI provides a platform that brings the data from those apps together, connecting them to gain insights into your business

Create dashboards and reports that offer a visual representation of your data, making it easy to generate your regular business reports. In addition to being a visual tool that unifies your data, Power BI is secured by Microsoft’s enterprise grade security architecture, meaning your data is safe with Power BI.
