Around 90% of organisations were looking forward to hiring data officers by 2019. – CIO

With companies constantly growing and expanding globally, they are collecting data in abundance. The collection of data certainly means that you have more insights about your customers, and you can use and analyse it for planning the growth and development strategies of your business. However, big amount of data also mean that its management is difficult. The incompatible systems or siloed processes could be one of the reasons for poor management of data. Such scenario forces organisations to work with data which doesn’t give them deep and correct insights about the market trends or business processes.

All about Microsoft Power BI

In this post, we will talk about one of the most powerful business intelligence applications which is Microsoft Power BI. Power BI is one of the youngest applications in the Microsoft product suite which was introduced in 2015 for data visualisation and analytics. This product was advertised as an application that give answers when asked questions with the help of Natural Language Processing. It was not until 2017 when Microsoft started promoting Power BI as an application to gain business intelligence.

The period from when Power BI was introduced to the time it matured, companies started to scout the market for professionals who had expertise in analysing data or upgrading the IT infrastructure. Slowly, entrepreneurs realised that cutting-edge business intelligence can be achieved when humans and applications work in conjunction.
