How to Maximise Data with Power BI & Power Automate

Technology is the key to growing your business.

If you want assistance to optimise processes, maximise data and innovate at rapid speed, find a partner that understands the particulars.

Let’s take a deeper look at Microsoft’s Power BI and Power Automate programs.

What is Power BI?

Power BI is a Microsoft Power Platform service that provides interactive data analytics and connects it to your entire organisation in the cloud. Power BI allows you to build insightful dashboards and share them with your organisation for knowledge creation.

Organisations collect vast amounts of data about customers, operations,  marketing and more but making strategic decisions based on results can be challenging. There’s simply so much unorganised data, that it may be obsolete by the time it’s extracted.

The solution is Power BI, which lets you can connect and visualise any data using a unified, scalable platform suitable for individuals up to an organisation as a whole. These deeper insights can help bridge the gap between data and decision making.

Further capabilities include the ability to create remarkable reports personalised with your KPIs and brand, AI-powered answers to business questions using conversational language and Excel integration. Additionally, industry-leading security capabilities protect data including end-to-end encryption, sensitivity labelling and real-time access monitoring.

How will this impact your organisation? It will infuse a culture of business intelligence that is data-driven and enable all employees to make confident decisions using up-to-the-minute analytics.

What is Power Automate?

Power Automate is another service that forms part of the Microsoft Power Platform which lets organisations build automated processes for a range of business management tasks. This allows repetitive tasks and paperless processes to be streamlined so you can focus resources elsewhere.

It provides low-code, drag-and-drop tools and hundreds of pre-built connectors that make it easy to create automated workflows for repetitive, mundane tasks.

Wondering what functions you can automate in your organisation? Process advisor is a tool inside Power Automate that can record and visualise your procedures and provide recommendations for what can be automated, taking out the guesswork. 

Another valuable tool to enhance automated workflows is AI Builder. AI Builder analyses elements in your procedure and lets you quickly process forms, process approvals, detect images and text or start with prebuilt models.

Imagine how much you could boost your efficiency by automating simple, everyday tasks? Power Automate lets you automate across desktop, web and mobile allowing for truly universal automation software, anytime and anywhere.
