Business Intelligence & Microsoft PowerBI demo: how to transform disparate data into powerful dashboard visualisations and analytics.

Posted by Village Software

Organisations are experiencing explosive growth in the volume of data they are generating. In light of this, business intelligence tools are more important than ever in helping organisations transform disparate data sets into powerful analytics and insights to drive intelligent decision-making and growth.

For many organisations, data is help disparately across Excel spreadsheets, accountancy software, EPOS systems, Google Analytics, CRM systems, e-marketing platforms, telephone systems…the list goes on.

Imagine the power of being able to connect all this data and see real-time insights of what’s happening in all areas of your business at any one time – AND be able to predict future trends and forecasts.

Well you can, and it’s called Business Intelligence (BI).

What will be covered in this session?

  • An introduction to Business Intelligence – what it is and how it can transform data analysis and decision making.
  • The tell-tale signs that are evident in organisations requiring business intelligence.
  • Based on our experience of delivering hundreds of BI projects, we share advice on the best way for you to approach an enterprise-wide BI project
  • A simple demonstration of Microsoft PowerBI in action – how to transform data into powerful analytics and dashboard visualisations.
  • Q&A.

Who is this session for?

  • Business owners, business leaders, CFOs, CIOs and IT professionals who are interested in how Business Intelligence and PowerBI can be leveraged within their own business.
