I am finally thawed out from reIMAGINE 2014 in Fargo. What an amazing learning experience! Microsoft is dedicated to expanding application enhancements to facilitate a seamless user experience across platforms. From Dynamics GP to CRM and Office 365, Microsoft is continuing to optimize the user interface and help people create impactful analytics presentations. Here’s what I learned about Power BI.
Your company’s data lives in many different places. How can you turn all of your information into strategic insight to power your business? The answer: Power BI. Microsoft delivers with this effective tool to help you discover, analyze, visualize, and collaborate – enabling smarter decision making and dynamic interaction across your business.
Self-service BI available in Excel 2013 allows you to present your data in insightful and interesting ways. Answer your questions quickly and easily in the Excel format you already know.
- Power Query– easily discover and connect to data from public and corporate data sources. Optimize social insights, financial analysis, and operational procedures with targeted searches and performance visibility.
- Power Pivot – create a sophisticated Data Model directly in Excel with refreshable live data. Also great for sharing dashboard data offline.
- Power View– create reports and analytical views with interactive data visualizations and geo mapping. Power View is easy for non-technical users to operate in the Power BI App.

The Power BI App for Office 365 allows you to magnify these capabilities through a collaborative online environment. Employees can access reports and connect with important information with robust querying and data views.
- Power BI Sites – share, view, and interact with reports in these collaborative Power BI sites that can be accessed anywhere, even on tablets.
- Power BI Q&A – use natural language queries to find, explore, and report over your data. Even users that do not understand SQL can create queries to find the information they need.
