What is Power BI?
Power BI is a unified, scalable platform for self-service and enterprise business intelligence (BI). Connect to and visualise any data, and seamlessly infuse the visuals into the apps you use every day.
Bridge the gap between data and decision making
Create amazing data experiences
Easily connect to, model, and visualise your data, creating memorable reports personalised with your KPIs and brand. Get fast, AI-powered answers to your business questions—even when asking with conversational language.
Gain insight from your largest BI deployments
Make the most of your big data investments by connecting to all your data sources with the scale to analyse, share, and promote insights across your organisation while maintaining data accuracy, consistency, and security.
Make decisions with confidence
Work together easily on the same data, collaborate on reports, and share insights across popular Microsoft Office applications such as Microsoft Teams and Excel. Empower everyone in your organisation to quickly make data-driven decisions that drive strategic actions.
Optimise your business intelligence with trusted Microsoft technologies
End-to-end data protection
Better protect your data across Power BI reports, dashboards, and datasets. Persistent protection keeps working even when shared outside your organisation or exported to other formats such as Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF.
When you use Power BI with Azure and Microsoft 365, you extract maximum value from your technology and your data. Because Power BI interoperates with the Microsoft technology you already trust, you can use your data productively.
Extensive data connectors
