Microsoft Power BI is a cloud-based business analytics package that provides you the tool you need to spot risks, identify opportunities and solve real business challenges. It comes in 2 versions: Power BI Desktop and Power BI Mobile.
- Natural language processing: Power BI lets users ask question in natural language, for instance “What are this year's sales by month?" and returns interactive visualization reports as an answer: no need to code complicated queries: with the right question, you get the right charts or graphs as your answer.
- Visualization tools: Power BI lets you create rich visuals from the data that help identify trends as they happen, in real-time. Your content - reports, dashboards, datasets - can easily be published or shared with the team using the Groups feature.
- Data Integrity: Power BI uses strong rules to maintain data integrity across all platforms even in case of multiple data sources. The Dataset feature allows you to combine data from multiple data sources. You can also import content from company's data using a variety of sources like SQL Server Analysis Services, HDFS, Oracle, Azure SQL Database and Data Warehouse, IBM DB2 and many more.
- Mobility: Your business data is available from anywhere, anytime with the Power BI app for Windows, iOS, and Android.
Power BI provides an open, standards-based REST API for easy integration with your applications.
Power BI integrates with over 45 enterprise applications, including Access, Google Analytics, Mailchimp, Marketo, Oracle, Salesforce, Zendesk, all Microsoft products, and many more.
