What is Power BI?
Power BI is a suite of business analytics tools that deliver insights throughout your organization. Connect to hundreds of data sources, simplify data prep, and drive ad hoc analysis. Produce beautiful reports, then publish them for your organization to consume on the web and across mobile devices. Everyone can create personalized dashboards with a unique, 360-degree view of their business. And scale across the enterprise, with governance and security built-in.
Go from data to insight to action
Create rich, interactive reports with visual analytics at your fingertips
Connect to your data, wherever it is
Access data from hundreds of supported on-premises and cloud-based sources, such as Dynamics 365, Salesforce, Azure SQL DB, Excel, and SharePoint. Ensure it’s always up to date with automated, incremental refreshes. Power BI Desktop enables you to draw deep insights for a broad range of scenarios.
Prep and model your data with ease
Data prep can take most of your time, but it doesn’t have to. Reclaim hours in your day using the self-service Power Query experience familiar to millions of Excel users. Ingest, transform, integrate and enrich data in Power BI.
Provide advanced analytics with the familiarity of Excel
Enable business users to dig deeper into data and find patterns they may have otherwise missed, with Power BI features like quick measures, grouping, forecasting, and clustering. Advanced users have full control over their model using powerful DAX formula language. If you’re familiar with Excel, you’ll feel at home in Power BI.
Create interactive reports customized for your business
Create stunning reports with interactive data visualizations. Tell your data story using a drag-and-drop canvas and more than 85 modern data visuals from Microsoft and partners—or create your own, using the Power BI open source custom visuals framework. Design your report with theming, formatting, and layout tools.
