Wondering what makes Power BI stand out in the market?
In this blog post, let’s discuss the privileges of having Power BI as your data visualization tool!
Power BI is enriched with easy drag-and-drop features that enable naïve and experienced users to develop a myriad of visualization reports (column, pie, bubble, heat maps, scatter plots, geospatial analytics & much more) seamlessly. Also, the platform supports Data Analytics Expressions (DAX), R & M language for data transformations, which demands a very short learning curve than other BI tools in the market.
Any individual who has a knack for Excel can shine with Power BI as it encompasses pre-built dashboards and templates to jump-start data analytics. Power BI Desktop is free of cost and hence anyone can extract, transform, and visualize data without any infrastructure setup or capital expenditure.
Ranging from extracting data from on-premises and cloud touchpoints to visualizing the datasets & enriching them with AI & ML models, Power BI has a comprehensive toolset for end-to-end analytics.
Power BI supports a different types of data sources (100+ data points) that include on-premises, cloud, office 365 suite, Google Analytics, and much more. Easy to integrate Microsoft Cloud platforms such as Azure data factory, Azure cognitive services, Azure machine learning, Cortana, and Bot framework makes Power BI a cutting-edge tool for data analytics. In addition to these features, Power BI is compatible with desktop, mobile and tablets. This feature helps individuals access data insights from anywhere and anytime.
Power BI unifies self-service and enterprise data analytics to support the mission of future-first data-driven culture of an organization.
Microsoft encompasses endless security features to deliver the right data to the right people in Power BI.
Here’s the list of security features you gain with Microsoft Power BI as your data visualization tool!
With Power BI in place, your organization has access to a pioneer security product suite that helps your teams identify, analyze, and mitigate data security threats proactively. On top of these data protection measures, your organization stays compliant with more than 100 standards & certifications such as HIPAA, FINRA, IL6, FedRamp, and so on by adopting Power BI.
Power BI has rich AI capabilities that help non-data scientists create AI visualizations, build machine learning models, and find answers to their business queries from unstructured & semi-structured datasets.
The platform includes three visualization features that bring in Power BI AI features.
Non-technical or business users can easily find answers to their queries in natural language with Cortana, a Microsoft digital assistant. Instead of writing “n” lines of scripts, beginners can dive in and grab data insights in no time with these enriching self-service capabilities of Power BI.
Enterprises can accelerate their content creation with simple visual cues and deployment pipelines in Power BI. The deployment pipelines enable creators to develop, test, and share interactive Power BI dashboards & reports without any manual efforts using modern deployment features.
Everyone in the organization can access live up-to-the-minute analytics from sensors to social media with rich visuals in Power BI. You can choose to stream data in batch or real-time based on your needs and set up automated data refresh.
Instead of manual or scheduled data refreshing, creators can systematize visual cues to identify data changes, develop, test & publish the BI reports. This elevates your organization’s overall data-driven culture.
Transforming your data to insights & insights to action, everything can be done with Microsoft Power Platform. Power BI encompasses inbuilt visuals for Power Apps and Power Automate to build business applications, workflows, alert notifications, report busting, and much more.
