Power BI FAQs

We can work with you to decide the best way of hosting your new or extended BI solution. This could be on premise, in the cloud, or a hybrid approach. In the cloud, data and files are saved in external servers, the system can be accessed using the internet, and the software automatically updates so you’re always up to date.

There are various options depending on business size and what different employees need from the system. Free licences simply allow users to author and save reports, but this option isn’t intended for businesses so reports can’t be shared between colleagues or collaborated on. Pro licences are low cost and much more suited to businesses’ needs. These paid licences are included with Office 365 E5 licences as standard, or purchased as a monthly per user subscription that helps to keep costs flexible and so you don’t pay for more than what you need. If you would like to discuss licence optimisation, get in touch today.

Microsoft Power BI Desktop version 2.74.5619.621 published October 2019.

Cybit can utilise this flexible, adaptable platform to benefit industries such as retail, transport, insurance, public sector, healthcare, government, professional services, financial services and manufacturing, among many others.

All roles can use and benefit from Microsoft Power BI for better visibility into a business’s success and needs in an easily consumable way. We can work with you and the relevant teams within your business to implement Power BI in the most effective and valuable way.

IT Managers

Overwhelming backlogs quickly build in IT departments with small data requests and security risks. Power BI offers centrally governed and secure data as standard, and allows end users to take control of data themselves, meaning IT can begin to focus on more value-add tasks.

Data Analysts

Reporting can be time consuming and quickly outdated. Effortlessly connect and prepare data into one consistent source to create accurate and meaningful reports.

Business Users

Whether you’re in operations, sales or HR, Power BI means you don’t need to be an analyst to understand business critical information. Put data back in the hands of the people who need it most. Simplify data analysis and discover actionable insight with intuitive drag-and-drop functionality and impactful visualisations.

Power BI can be natively integrated with your other Microsoft applications, including Office 365, Dynamics 365 CRM, GP, SharePoint to support these tools and create a cohesive end-to-end platform that the whole business can benefit from. You can also draw information from third party CRM and ERP systems such as Salesforce.com and SAP into Microsoft Power BI for analysis and interrogation, to increase the value of your investment with rapid insight discovery.

We work with a range of BI products and platforms to ensure that we always have the right tools at hand to offer a best-fit way of supporting and progressing your business. Our valued BI partners include Microsoft, Qlik, Alteryx and TimeXtender

Our flexible managed services approach means we can become an extension of your existing internal IT team, or we can take on the whole responsibility of your new or existing BI infrastructure to take the stress away from you. This includes architecting and implementing a value-add solution and proactively supporting and maintaining it long term. No matter what level of support you require, we’re here to help.

If you currently use Microsoft Power BI or any other Business Intelligence software, we can complete a thorough health check to discover anything that needs to be optimised, so you can be sure that your business is getting the most value out of your BI platform. We can also maintain, manage and support to a level that suits you going forward.
