Over the past few weeks we have covered quite a few reasons why Power BI is an important tool for any business. So the question left is not if you should start using Power BI, but how do you begin harnessing these amazing capabilities and make them work for your business?

Download the Power BI Desktop
The Power BI desktop is free for all users and I highly recommend downloading this version, connecting to data and creating some basic reports. From here you can start to see how Power BI works and determine if you will need to purchase a Power BI Pro license.
** I only recommend this if you are DIY or learn by doing type of person as this requires more of a time investment. If you are looking for more complex analytics or to have an end report ready quickly one of the next two options is probably better for you.
If live hands on training is more your style contact us to schedule either individual or group training. Training can range from basic end-user training to more complex report developer training. You set the goals and time allotted and we will create a training session based on your needs.
Have Us Create Your Report
It may be difficult to see how beneficial Power BI can be for your company until you have a report with company specific data or you may not have the ability to spend a lot of time creating the report yourself. With our experienced staff we can help you gather the data and create your first report either in concurrence with training or as a final deliverable.
Power BI can provide wonderful visuals and powerful analytics that can be used to monitor the current pulse of your business. If you haven’t already it’s time to start taking advantage of this tool.
