In our introductory Blog we described Microsoft Power BI in a single paragraph:
Power BI fosters a data-driven culture with self-service analytics functionality. The tool allows users to uncover and share meaningful insights derived from their data, so that leaders can make informed decisions around what to optimise or prioritise.
Business Intelligence has become a top priority for all organizations. Workspace and economic challenges resulting from events of the past couple of years have greatly increased that need. There has never been a more important time for you to speak to your customers about Microsoft Power BI.
Power BI provides leading modern BI capabilities and best overall economics to address customer needs.
Your Customers can discover and connect to live Power BI datasets in Excel to enable users to work with consistent and governed data using the tools they know and love—like PivotTables. Power BI and Excel are natively integrated, so sensitivity, certified, and promoted labels are automatically inherited from Power BI, so they can work with confidence knowing data is accessible only to authorized users. So, if they are a die-hard Microsoft Excel user and consider an intricate pivot table a work of art, they might find it hard to believe just how simple it is to use Microsoft Power BI.
One easy conversation starter is on the back of a Microsoft Teams enhancement. Power BI and Teams help users seamlessly infuse data into their work, making it easier to collaborate and make decisions. It creates a centralized place for Customers to find and analyze data, while enhancing organisational usage of Teams with embedded channel, chat, and meeting experiences. By combining these capabilities in Teams, organizations are enabled to deliver a trusted modern BI experience with intelligent and familiar offerings at scale.
The most compelling way to introduce Microsoft Power BI to your Customer is through a demonstration. Once your Customer sees a sample of data intelligently and personally visualized through Power BI then they see how empowering it can be for their organization and then they too can make informed decisions around what to optimise or prioritise.
