Microsoft Power BI
Power BI is a suite of business analytics tools to analyse data and share insights. Power BI dashboards provide a 360-degree view for business users with their most important metrics in one place, updated in real time, and available on all of their devices.
Power BI Desktop is a feature-rich data mashup and report authoring tool. Combine data from disparate databases, files, and web services with visual tools that help you understand and fix data quality and formatting issues automatically.
With the Power BI service, publish reports securely to your organisation and setup automatic data refresh so everyone has the latest information. Plus you can access your data and reports from anywhere with the Power BI Mobile apps, which update automatically with any changes to your data.

Connect to your data, wherever it is
Access data from hundreds of supported on-premises and cloud-based sources, such as Dynamics 365, Salesforce, Azure SQL DB, Excel, and SharePoint. Ensure it’s always up to date with automated, incremental refreshes. Power BI Desktop enables you to develop deep, actionable insights for a broad range of scenarios.
Prep and model your data with ease
Data prep can take most of your time, but it doesn’t have to with data modelling tools. Reclaim hours in your day using the self-service Power Query experience familiar to millions of Excel users. Ingest, transform, integrate and enrich data in Power BI.
Provide advanced analytics with the familiarity of Excel
Dig deeper into data and find patterns you may have otherwise missed that lead to actionable insights. Use features like quick measures, grouping, forecasting, and clustering. Give advanced users full control over their model using powerful DAX formula language. If you’re familiar with Excel, you’ll feel at home in Power BI.
Create interactive reports customised for your business
Create stunning reports with interactive data visualisations. Tell your data story using a drag-and-drop canvas and hundreds of modern data visuals from Microsoft and partners or create your own, using the Power BI open source custom visuals framework. Design your report with theming, formatting, and layout tools.
Author for everyone, anywhere
Get visual analytics to the people who need it. Create mobile-optimized reports for viewers to consume on the go. Publish from Power BI Desktop to the cloud or on-premises. Embed reports created in Power BI Desktop into existing apps or websites.
