The most powerful, easiest to learn, and lowest cost BI suite.
Havens Consulting specializes in report development & design utilizing Microsoft Power BI.
Power BI is a cloud based reporting & analytics platform. It connects users to a broad range of data through interactive reports, dashboards, and compelling visualizations that tell a story.
This platform eliminates the need to worry about data refreshes and file versions, allowing users to access the reports using their computer or mobile device at any time.
The Four Pillars of Power BI
Power Query is a data connector and intuitive tool that lets you shape, clean, transform, and much more with your data.
It is also an amazing ETL tool. It does what VBA, Access, or SSIS packages can do, only easier. It Extracts data from almost any data source, Transforms that data, and then Loads it to the Data Model.
The Data Model is the cornerstone of Power BI. Data Models benefit from utilizing a multiple table design with relationships. Which reduces file size and increases performance.
Power BI also contains a calculation language called DAX, or Data Analysis Expression. DAX is powerful at returning aggregated against very large datasets quickly and effectively.
Power BI Desktop
Power BI Reports contain over 32 built-in visuals, and has access to a vibrant marketplace of custom visuals.
Reports are designed to be highly interactive and customizable. With many ways to filter, interact, or drill into the data. There are also ways to create interactive stories and narratives for published reports.
Power BI Service
The Power BI Service is an online platform that lets you publish reports securely within an organization.
Once published, these reports can be accessed from almost any device with a web browser or app store.
Published reports also have automatic data refreshes, so the reports will always contain the latest information.
Power BI is also the defining Industry Leader as measured by both Forrester and Gartner Research
