Microsoft Power BI - Introduction
Today I would like to introduce a tool released by Microsoft called Power BI
As per my understanding its a combination of four tools which were released by Microsoft
I will be exploring the product and sharing the information as per my learnings and understandings.
Now some of you might be thinking why a Navision Consultant should worry about a tool released by Microsoft? That is what I thought initially but it adds value to us too.
How Microsoft Defines Power BI
"Power BI for Office 365 is Microsoft's cloud-based business intelligence (BI) solution that works from within Excel and Office 365 to analyze and visualize data in a self-service way. The BI solution is designed to help business users gain insights from their data and, according to Microsoft, includes: Power Query, Power Map, Power Pivot, and Power View."
Just a quick briefing about data formats that it connects to.
I have highlighted some that we can use w.r.t Navision. If you see the list above then you might find that its possible to get data from most of the available sources.
Seems Interesting? Stay tuned for more, I will be coming up with some more information later.
