Power BI

Power BI Solutions

A data driven culture for Business Intelligence

Power BI Desktop is used to create dashboards, reports and analytics on any business data. It can be fed any amounts of data (only limited by the computing power of your hardware) and be used by tens or thousands. The intelligent analytics can give you insights and trends to your business that can be hard to catch otherwise.

Power BI is free for an individual user. Simply go to PowerBI.com or install it in the Windows 10 App Store.

Power BI licensing

Microsoft offers discounts to many different categories of businesses and organizations such as people in education, the public sector or a non-profit and these discounts can be quite significant.

The price per user cost means that every person who authors, publishes or uses a report must have a Power BI Pro license. If you work in a large organization, that can add up, so you can upgrade to Power BI Premium. Power BI Premium is a pricing model that allows anybody in your organization to use and interact with reports without being licensed individually.

What is Power BI?

Power BI is a self-service business intelligence platform that is cloud based. The service provides non-technical users with a tool that they can use to aggregate, analyze, visualize and share data. It allows you to combine data from disparate databases, files, and web services with visual tools that help you understand and fix data quality and formatting issues automatically.

Power BI dashboards provide a 360-degree view for business users with their most important metrics in one place, updated in real time, and available on all their devices. With one click, users can explore the data behind their dashboard using intuitive tools that make finding answers easy.
