Balanced Scorecards in Power BI

While the Power KPI visual has been a necessary building block for us in the presentation of KPIs, by itself it doesn’t provide a scorecard layout. Some users, including executives, really wanted a tabular, scorecard style of KPIs. For this, we developed a second custom visual called Power KPI Matrix. Power KPI Matrix supports an unlimited number of KPIs in a single visual, along with optional categorizations, images, and sparklines. With the latest version, 2.0, it also includes an interactive pop-out of the full Power KPI chart within the visual for a given selected cell. While we developed it primarily for our own team and purpose, it has also been made available for free to the public.

Power BI makes it possible for anyone to explore data and find insights to make better business decisions. But often, the insight itself isn’t the end result – instead, an action needs to be taken.

Or it might be identifying suspicious sensor readings from manufacturing devices and creating a work order to investigate. With the new PowerApps custom visual for Power BI, taking action has never been easier or more integrated.
