It’s a known fact in the industry that 80% of powerful dashboards is not actually building the dashboard, but rather collecting and organizing the data sitting behind it. This article discusses how you can combine the strengths of leading business intelligence and corporate performance management solutions to create easy-to-use dashboards and operational reports.

Here are several features and benefits that could help you get the most out of Power BI. This Microsoft technology quickly is becoming one of the world’s favorite business intelligence and dashboard tools. A number of organizations we have spoken to have expressed the following needs:

-       Faster and easier implementations of Power BI

-       Less technical skills required to configure integrations and business rules

-       Model maintenance without contacting support

-       An easy way to combine and store data from many sources and then deliver it to Power BI

-       Additional features such as: Easy Data Input, Excel-formatted reports, currency conversion, etc.
