One of the foremost factors for businesses on the path towards digital transformation is the need to act on insightful analytics from their operational data and use them for their current sustenance and future growth. Conventional Business Intelligence platforms cannot fully meet the requirements for businesses to look for new ways to optimize their processes, dive-deep into Big Data, and refine their operational models based on data trends and patterns. What’s required is a modern and unified business intelligence suite that leverages the latest technological advancements such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Natural Language Processing (NLP), and Predictive Analysis, amongst others.
Microsoft’s Power BI suite, a part of Power Platform, effectively addresses the challenges seen in disparate and legacy analytics platforms. The suite is one of the most prominent BI tools used in current times. It enables businesses to dive deep into structured and unstructured data and uncover hidden insights crucial to business operations.
