Frequently Asked Questions About Power BI Consulting

What is Power BI?

Power BI is an interactive data visualization software created by Microsoft. Its initial focus centres around self-service and enterprise business intelligence by visualizing data and integrating those visuals into the applications businesses use on a daily basis.

What is Power BI used for?

Businesses and organizations use Microsoft’s Power BI platform to connect various data sources, streamline data preparation, and drive analysis. Users can develop comprehensive reports and upload those reports for team members to consume both on the web and mobile devices.

Why use Power BI?

When you’re putting together data-driven reports for your team, you need the complete metrics to measure and finalize those important business decisions. Power BI was created to help businesses leverage their visualizations and connect several data sources in a way that is accessible to the rest of your organization.

Power BI helps Canada’s business leaders evaluate and predict industry trends using organized data on a single screen rather than spread out across multiple spreadsheets and various applications/software.

Who uses Power BI?

Power BI was designed for the everyday business user. Its streamlined business intelligence, reporting, and data visualization capabilities have been utilized by a wide range of industries, including:

  • Education
  • E-Commerce
  • Computer Software
  • Mobile Technology
  • Oil & Gas
  • Manufacturing

At Softlanding, we work with businesses and organizations across Canada and the United States to deliver end-to-end Microsoft consulting services they can count on, including our leading Power BI services.

What is Microsoft Power BI certification?

A Power BI certification is awarded to anyone who completes Exam PL-300: Microsoft Power BI Data Analyst — a 90-minute exam designed to measure your ability to prepare, model, visualize, and analyze data, in addition to deploying and maintaining assets.

This certificate asserts that you understand how to effectively manage reports and dashboards, create paginated reports, and publish reports to any Power BI platform.

How to use Microsoft Power BI

If you have a Power BI account, you can begin to build your custom data models and reports using the Power BI Desktop.

Once you’ve connected to your chosen data, you can then begin to shape the data with questions that create compelling and insightful data models. These data models will then be used to create reports and comprehensive visualizations that can be shared with your team like any other Microsoft file.

Your Power BI consultant will help you understand everything you need to know about Power BI and customize its dashboard and reports to align with your business objectives. We’ll help you identify risks, locate new opportunities, and make informed decisions — giving you a competitive advantage in your industry.

Power BI vs excel

While both programs offer similarities in how they function and how data is presented, there are important differentiators to consider.

Power BI is designed to handle millions of rows of data at an advanced speed. Its cloud-based features allow users to publish reports to the end-user on Microsoft’s platform and import visualizations that are not in the current file by going to the marketplace.

Microsoft Excel is an accessible technology that is used by businesses worldwide. While it offers flexibility when creating reports, it cannot hold as much data as Power BI and offers limited visualizations.

Power BI vs Google analytics

While both Power BI and Google Analytics are data visualization tools, it’s important to note their differences.

Power BI is used for business analytics and offers a greater capacity for visualization options when creating company reports.

Google Analytics is used for web analytics and is most suitable for understanding visitor behaviours and goals-tracking from websites.

At Softlanding, we help businesses and organizations across Canada and the U.S. understand the benefits of Microsoft’s Power BI service and how this innovative platform can help them meet their internal or customer-facing needs.
