About Power BI

Power BI is an analytics service that enables anyone to visualize and analyze data with greater speed, efficiency, and understanding. It connects users to a broad range of data through easy-to-use dashboards, interactive reports, and compelling visualizations that bring data to life.

The Power of Office 365 Integration

Beyond Power BI’s primary function as an analytics platform, it also serves as a powerful communication and collaboration tool when integrated with other familiar applications, such as Microsoft Teams, SharePoint, and Dynamics CRM to name a few. These solutions all work together to provides a more seamless productivity experience for users as they access diverse mission-critical information, collaborate with colleagues, and securely share real-time analytics from anywhere, at any time.

In our Power BI Demo, we walk through a real-world scenario of how to leverage Power BI within the Office 365 Suite to achieve better insights into your unique business goals.

This demo will explore how Power BI can:

  • Improve timely insights to drive strategy: See how you can visualize your data to make analysis and decision-making simpler and more efficient with streaming live data updates.
  • Enhance productivity and collaboration: Easily share results with integrated collaboration tools like SharePoint and Teams to help your users easily consume and edit reports.
  • Ensure data is secure: Share information securely with only appropriate team members from anywhere at any time.

To help you get started, this demo shows you how to create your first Power BI Report and then integrate it with other applications in Office 365. For the purpose of the demo, we use a familiar scenario to which every company can relate – how to maximize your recruiting efforts while decreasing the cost-per-hire. While there are many other use cases for Power BI, the same principles outlined in this demo can be applied to all areas of your business.
