Talk Title: Improving your Business Intelligence with Power BI
The ability to unlock the data you need in an accurate and timely way is an important part of making good business decisions. This can be challenging when your data is stored in an ever increasing number of places. How can you get the information you need, when you need it?
Power BI is Microsoft’s cloud based Business Intelligence solution. With Power BI you can analyse and visualise data from a wide variety of sources in one place. Your business data can be stored on-site in SQL or Oracle databases or one of many web and cloud based locations including Mailchimp, Dynamics CRM Online, Google Analytics, SalesForce, SharePoint, Facebook and OData (Open Data protocol).
Steve will present examples of how Power BI can improve your Business Intelligence, by giving you timely access to data, when and where you need it. This presentation will have something for everyone from the Digital Marketer and CFO to line managers and sales representative.
