What is it?

Available on desktop, as a SaaS product or on a mobile devise, Power BI connects your disparate data sets, transforms and cleans the data into a data model and then provides the data back to you in visually compelling and easy-to-process charts and graphs. This allows you to generate and share clear and useful snapshots of what’s happening in your business - all of which can be shared with other Power BI users within your organisation.

ANYONE WHO CAN USE EXCEL CAN USE POWER BI

Why Power BI?

Power BI is built on the foundation of Microsoft Excel and as such, the learning curve from Excel to Power BI is not that steep; anyone who can use Excel can use Power BI, but the latter is far more powerful. Through easy drag-and-drop functionality, with Power BI you can:

  • Create amazing data experiences
  • Gain insight from seamless integration with other data applications
  • Make decisions with confidence
  • Enjoy security and robust access control
  • Take comfort that there's a solid product roadmap ahead.

Power BI

THE POWER PLATFORM IS BUILT ON THE

Microsoft Dataverse

The Microsoft Dataverse (formerly the Common Data Service) lets you securely store and manage data that's used by business applications. Data within Microsoft Dataverse is stored within a set of entities. An entity is a set of records used to store data, similar to how a table stores data within a database. The Microsoft Dataverse includes a base set of standard entities that cover typical scenarios, but you can also create custom entities specific to your organisation and populate them with data.
