10 Reasons Why You Should be Using Power BI

Today’s organizations are inundated with data. Power BI solves the overload.

Power BI is an essential tool for businesses looking to bridge the gap between data and decision making. Having accurate, real-time access to data allows businesses to break down data silos, and enable a highly visual and collaborative experience. With Power BI, you can take your data visualizations to the next level and empower everyone to quickly make data-driven decisions. Easily work together, collaborate on reports, and share insights across popular applications.

This data can include anything from customer transactions to streaming data from IoT devices to increasingly massive volumes of web and social data. And the amount of data is only growing—between 2018 and 2025, data volume is expected to grow 61 percent annually. Turning this large volume of raw data into true data insights is essential for better decision making, as data-driven strategies are empowering companies to successfully address emerging
trends and challenges.

Power BI empowers your teams with industry-leading business intelligence (BI) and augmented analytics so that you can simplify decision making in a world of increased complexity and growing data volume.
