Bitscape offers comprehensive Power BI services using familiar Microsoft technologies, including recent inclusion of Microsoft’s Power BI data visualization.
With Power BI and Power BI Desktop, our expert consultants can help you create a collaborative BI suite and help you keep your reports up to date, including the scheduled data refresh option. With natural query language-based search available, you can ask questions about your data, do data queries for the team, and search/maintain a data catalog.
Microsoft’s Power BI is built around three core components: datasets, which contain all of the raw information a user brings into Power BI; reports, which organize that data into a set of charts and graphs and dashboards, which are single live-updating pages that provide an at-a-glance look at specific visualizations based on those reports.
The tool can pull in content from a company’s data using connections to various sources, including Microsoft SQL Server services, Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Data Warehouse, SQL Server Analysis Services, and the Apache Spark on Azure HDInsight service. In addition to those data sources, Microsoft has added several “content packs” from third-party vendors like Salesforce, Acumatica, GitHub and Zendesk an d SAP High-Performance Analytic Appliance (HANA) to name a few. The packs will pull in datasets from those services and include pre-populated reports and dashboards designed to get users off the ground and quickly display relevant information. Today Power BI is also able to leverage the power of R. R is the most widely used programming language and software by statisticians and data scientists and is increasingly adopted by business analysts.
With Power BI gateways, you can keep your data fresh by connecting to on-premises data sources. The gateways provide the flexibility you need to meet your organization’s individual needs. The Power BI gateway for personal use is designed for use with personal data sets and allows you to refresh your on-premises data quickly without waiting for an IT Admin. The Power BI gateway for enterprise gateways is used by organizations to serve many users.
Bitscape’s expertise in Microsoft BI since 2011 along with Microsoft Worldwide Award recognition as a finalist for Business Intelligence for 2013, do further complement our Power BI servicing ability.
