As well as creating interactive dashboards that can update in real time you can also combine data from multiple sources. So if you want to combine sales opportunity data from your CRM system with financial performance figures from your accounting software, then the two can be linked to analyse metrics such as average order values.

Power BI can offer a truly staggering number of possibilities and often the challenge is understanding what it could do for you. Below we’ve provided some examples of how Microsoft Power BI can be configured using our Microsoft Power BI consulting service which not only configures the relevant database and sets up the reports but also offers training for your staff to update and tweak reports when needed.
