Speaker notes: Many businesses want to use data and business intelligence to help prioritize and focus on the most profitable opportunities. In a TechAisle study, 67% of business cited BI as a top 10 priority.
Microsoft offers technology that makes it easy to visualize data and interpret its meaning—ultimately making it easier to make better informed decisions about where to focus next. For example, you can:
Give your teams out-of-the-box interactive visualizations and dashboards that make it easy to quickly identify, monitor, and act on opportunities with Power BI and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online. Use easy point-and-click tools in Power BI and Microsoft Excel to instantly convert data into charts or tables, enter information faster with auto-complete, and easily summarize, analyze, and present massive amounts of data.
We continue to enrich the visualizations that are available in the service. Visualizations now include combo charts, fill maps, gauges, tree maps, and funnel charts.
Power BI dashboards With updates to Power BI, customers can now see all their data through a single pane of glass. Live Power BI dashboards show visualizations and KPIs from data that reside both on-premises and in the cloud, providing a consolidated view across their business regardless of where their data lives.
Simplifying how you interact with data, natural language query is built into the dashboard allowing users to type questions and receive answers from data in the form of interactive visualizations.
You can then explore their data further by drilling through the dashboard into the underlying reports, discovering new insights that they can pin back to the dashboard to monitor performance going forward.
