big-powerbiBusinesses can’t answer critical questions

Many companies struggle to provide actionable information to their employees in a timely manner and turn to business intelligence (BI) services to help their users make informed decisions. Although BI continues to be a top priority for business executives, many companies still struggle to answer several critical questions: Who are my most profitable customers? What projects will yield a strong return? What is our ratio of new graduates to industry hires? What impact will the price of fuel have on my merchandise?

Wanting more from business intelligence services

Users today want more from their BI solution, demanding Discoverability, Collaboration, Self Service, Insights, and Data Access delivered through browser based, interactive, and accessible in real-time. They want to use solutions that are owned by the business, integrated with business goals, and that facilitate collaboration.
