Introduction to Power BI


Power BI Introduction

Microsoft Power BI is a collection of software services, apps, and connectors that work together to turn your unrelated sources of data into coherent, visually immersive, and interactive insights. Whether your data is a simple Microsoft Excel workbook, or a collection of cloud-based and on-premises hybrid data warehouses, Power BI lets you easily connect to your data sources, visualize (or discover) what's important, and share that with anyone or everyone you want.

Power BI is simple and fast, capable of creating quick insights from different sources of data like an Excel workbook or a local database. Power BI is robust and enterprise-grade, ready not only for extensive modeling and real-time analytics, but also for custom development. Power BI can be your personal report and visualization tool, but can also serve as the analytics and decision engine behind group projects, divisions, or entire corporations.
