Expand the Availability in Business Intelligence
Often, the complex and costly nature of implementing and learning business intelligence (BI) tools limits their adoption across an organization. Microsoft Business Intelligence solutions help you expand the availability of BI through familiar and intuitive business productivity tools like Microsoft Excel. This helps decision-makers at all levels make effective, strategic, operational, and tactical decisions. With broadly implemented BI, your operations manager can get better visibility into operational costs, your customer-support rep can identify opportunities to cross-sell or upsell, and your sales director can identify which deals will help grow the business.
Self-Service Business Intelligence
In order to make business-critical decisions, employees need rapid access to real-time data. But that data may be spread across disparate tools in multiple departments in a variety of formats, ranging from unstructured spreadsheet data to structured CRM data. Microsoft BI solutions provide immediate access to this range of information as they present it on easy-to-comprehend, interactive dashboards that allow your people to work productively with personalized, relevant views of information at the right level of detail. Using powerful, yet intuitive Excel-based tools such as PowerPivot and PowerView, any business user can analyze millions of rows of data, and create engagingly-visual reporting experiences that are presentation ready at all times.
