Thank you for your visiting Mongolia and provided us Microsoft Power BI training service. First of all we would like to ask the most common question from our clients. Why Power BI?
Power BI is a business analytics solution that lets you visualize your data and share insights across your organization or embed them in your app or website. Connect to hundreds of data sources and bring your data to life with live dashboards and reports. It offers data warehouse capabilities including data preparation, data discovery and interactive dashboards. Microsoft team worked through long period of time to build a big umbrella called Power BI, this big umbrella is not just a visualization tool such as Tableau, it is not just a self-service data analysis tool such as PivotTable and PivotChart in Excel, it is not just a cloud-based tool for data analysis. Power BI is combination of all of those, and it is much more. With Power BI you can connect to many data sources (wide range of data sources supported, and more data sources add to the list every month). You can mash up the data as you want with a very powerful data mash up engine. You can model the data, build your star schema, or add measures and calculated columns with an In-Memory super-fast engine. You can visualize data with great range of data visualization elements and customize it to tell the story behind the data. You can publish your dashboard and visualization tool in cloud and share it to those who you want. You can work with On-premises as well as Azure/cloud-based data sources. And believe me there are much more things that you can do with Power BI which you can’t do with other products easily.
What is difference between using Power BI and other data tools?
Companies rely on data more than ever before, as almost all information is completely digitized. Business intelligence software makes sense of the modern data landscape. The best BI systems offer features that analyze and report data for streamlined presentation. Some of the top tools in the industry are Tableau, QlikView and Microsoft Power BI.Power bi is data analysis tool, which can be used for reporting and data analysis from the wide range of data source. Power bi is simple and user-friendly in use which helps business analyst skills and power users to work easily on it. For the complex and huge data analysis power bi is very useful. It is widely used for modeling and structuring of unshaped data. Power bi has more graphical component as compared to SSRS, it makes power bi more efficient and easier to use, whereas SSRS has the more manual effort for analysis and generating the reports. Power bi will be helpful to generate the report based on cloud data although it will analysis and generate the report on the basis of relational storage which can access through your computer but SSRS is only useful where your data resides on the system. Tableau and Power BI have varying strengths and weaknesses that are common when comparing BI tools. Tableau allows users to integrate an infinite amount of data points in their analysis and offers comprehensive support options. Power BI, on the other hand, may be better for smaller companies who are looking for a more affordable business intelligence solution. However, choosing one over the other depends on the user’s business size and needs. When selecting the appropriate Business Intelligence Software for your company it is recommended that you assess the functions, costs, and other critical data concerning the product and vendor.
