Reporting with Power Platform

Discover how Microsoft's leading business intelligence tool can support your Dynamics 365 experience

Introducing Power BI

Part of the Power Platform suite, Power BI is a business analytics tool that allows you to easily connect to data sources, create visuals, and gain business intelligence quickly. With the ability to connect to Microsoft, third-party cloud services, and on-premise data sources easily, teams can access and analyse data quickly and remotely, creating strong visuals such as charts, dashboards, and maps to spot data trends. This centralised, easy-to-digest data presentation keeps teams united and informed.

  • Unify your data from multiple sources
  • Enjoy hundreds of data visualisations and built-in AI capabilities
  • Provide self-service analytics at an enterprise scale
  • Access leading sensitivity classification and data loss prevention capabilities
  • Stream analytics in real time
  • Utilise natural language query capability

Business Intelligence for all

Power BI enables you to transform data into insights in minutes. The ability to display data in a singular, visually striking, and device-friendly view, makes sharing insights for action simple and accessible to all. This also means that analytics and insight are no longer just the remit of individuals in specialist departments but can be created, accessed, and shared across organisations as a whole.

Smart tools for tangible results

With hundreds of data visualisations, built in AI capabilities, Excel integration, and both prebuilt and customer connectors, Power BI offers a number of impactful tools. However, combined with the other tools in the Microsoft Power Platform, the insights provided by Power BI can be informed into transformative action. Combine with Power Apps and Power Automate to easily build business apps and automate workflows.

Leading capabilities for securing data

As part of the Microsoft suite, Power BI offers leading sensitivity classifications and data loss prevention capabilities, allowing businesses to simplify management, achieve compliance, and keep data secure (even when exported), whilst still giving teams access to the insights they need. This reduces the cost, complexity, and security risks that would be posed by having multiple solutions to manage.

Power BI + Dynamics 365

By integrating the capabilities of Power BI into Dynamics 365, the rich data stored within Dynamics 365 can be transformed into striking, easily digestible visuals that may be more appropriate and accessible for wider sharing. This allows wider teams to benefit from the insights Dynamics 365 and Power BI can provide, turning these insights into impactful actions.
