Power BI – A powerful strategic allyReading time : 2 minutes
Imagine having all the information you need to make the best possible decisions at all times. Having all the latest data at your fingertips, summarized in dashboards, along with statistics, key performance indicators (KPIs) and predictive analytics. How would this affect your strategic decisions?
A company is a complex entity, made up of several smaller groups with connections of varying quality. Each of these groups generates a significant amount of data, which it processes and disseminates in its own way. In this context, how can we ensure that decision-makers have the information they need to make decisions that benefit the entire organization?
This is where BI comes in. Its mission: To transform data into business intelligence, in order to contribute to informed decision-making. Business Intelligence (BI) refers to all the strategies and technologies used by companies to collect, clean, model and present their data.
Identified as the best BI tool in 2021,1 2 Microsoft’s Power BI is a must-have in this field. And not without reason, as it is a powerful strategic ally that can provide you with many benefits.
