Simply collate business data in one place in a range of formats in the regularity your business needs
As Microsoft puts it
‘With Power BI Desktop, you connect to data (usually multiple data sources), shape that data (with queries that build insightful, compelling data models), and use that model to create reports (which others can leverage, build upon, and share) […
‘Power BI Desktop centralizes, simplifies, and streamlines what can otherwise be a scattered, disconnected, and arduous process of designing and creating business intelligence.’
The possibilities are huge: sales teams can not only access detailed comparisons between different sales periods, they can also instantly track and rate salespeople and teams as soon as sales are processed. Then, from this, performance-based bonuses can be automatically calculated.
E-commerce companies can get automated, instant analyses of buyer locations, click-throughs to online shops from other sites and profits per transaction, among a range of useful information.
Businesses with teams working on client premises can have at their fingertips information on how long each team spends on site, how often tools are replaced, mileage used etc, to gain a complete overview of how efficiently teams, or even individual workers, are working.
Its real value lies in its ability to automatically collate all the information a business needs and present it in easy-to-grasp formats.
