Business Intelligence

Business Intelligence (BI) is the backbone of a good analysis platform. Starting as a departmental effort, BI has the ability to expand to a true enterprise solution. Comprised of a mixture of data warehouses, ETL and OLAP platforms and reporting, these solutions are some of the most applauded or criticized in the organization. Because they may become diluted with growth, BI solutions require regular checkups and assessments to ensure they are meeting the needs of the business and providing the promised value. Power BI gives you the ability to bring your company data together in one place so you can visualize it as a whole, gain valuable insights and analyze it in seconds.
