Move from Excel to Power BI

March 9, 2019

The beauty of Microsoft Power BI as a platform is that it makes analytics accessible for those who aren’t data scientists. With the latest version of Power BI, the February 2019 release, Microsoft has taken that a step further and now Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Advanced Analytics are accessible, even for beginners. The Key Influencers Visual is ideal for a growing business currently using Excel or something similar. With this feature you can implement Power BI, which is really cost effective. It’s exactly the kind of reason people should start looking to move from Excel to Power BI for their analytics and reporting because you’ll get so much more out of it.

The new Key Influencers Visual from the February 2019 Power BI release is the perfect example of how organizations could use it – and why they should.

Why is this feature so ground-breaking?

Business users only get this level of analytics when they get into predictive analytics. The Key Influencers chart, in a very cost-effective way, gives them the ability to do some very advanced things, which is why everyone is so enthusiastic about it. Because it’s a feature of Power BI which is cost-effective, accessible and available, it’s easy to get going with it and to start seeing the benefits of it very quickly.
