What is Power BI?

Microsoft Power BI is the World leading enterprise self-service dashboard and reporting solution.

Power BI pulls data in from virtually any data source, you can clean and transform the data, create KPIs and calculations, and then present the resulting insights in visual interactive dashboards.

It is a self-service reporting tool, allowing your users to consume pre-defined reports on demand, or even create, adapt and share their own reports, based on existing or new data sources.

Get started today for free with Power BI Desktop, and you can even deploy the resulting reports to the PowerBI.com cloud, for free. You need a paid license to be able to share the reports with others.

How can Purple Frog help?

Getting started with any new tool can be a daunting prospect without a helping hand. Purple Frog can provide bespoke one-to-one training and advice on how to get going with Power BI, how it works, what you can do, and guiding you through your first steps.

Or if you don’t have the time or resources, Purple Frog can design and build your reports for you. This would include a hand over so that you could maintain and change them in the future if you wanted.
