Power BI is a cloud based business analytics service, allowing anyone to visualize and analyse data with greater speed, efficiency and understanding.
Before Power BI, getting a BI platform up and running in an organization would require a product like SQL Server Reporting or Analytics Services, which would usually mean upfront cost for hardware, licenses and consulting time. Once initial setup was completed there would also be the effort required to create the reporting models, reports and dashboards.
While the traditional reporting platform lives on, there is a new way with a zero start-up costs that can have organizations up and running in under day.
Have a look at SSW Rules to Better Power BI.
Extremely low start-up costs
Power BI desktop is free, and the professional cloud version is only $10 per month.
Let the people who need the data make or modify the reports on the fly.
Content packs and dashboards built-in
Getting your data into Power BI is extremely simple and most existing popular systems already have starting reports and dashboards out of the box.
Integrated into Office 365
Power BI is part of Office 365, so you may already have licenses and not even know it.
