Data analytics practice taps Microsoft Power BI to glean insights from complex, disparate data sources to deliver actionable results
January 23, 2017 - Portal Solutions, a technology consulting firm that designs and delivers modern digital workplaces on the Microsoft Office 365 platform, announced that it added two new customers to its data analytics portfolio in January of this year.
“While we have provided some level of data analytics to our customers for years, we decided to get serious about it in the fall of 2016 and created a dedicated Data Analytics practice here at Portal Solutions,” said Chief Operating Officer Dale Tuttle of Portal Solutions. “We’re happy to announce the two latest additions to our growing list of customers. The first, a well-known law school exam preparatory organization, had a large amount of disorganized data that was a pain to extract, organize and display. We used Microsoft Power BI to make that process faster, easier and the data more visually engaging for users to digest and to make decisions on,” said Tuttle. Power BI allows the preparatory organization to share data throughout the organization quickly and easily – from the Chief Executive Office to account managers, without having to worry about data security, version control or technical issues.
Another client, a healthcare organization located in the mid-Atlantic region, now realizes faster, more reliable reports and spends less time on the reporting piece which means more time for available for detailed analysis. “Analysts can get right to solving the problem at hand instead of spending time compiling data and creating reports,” said Tuttle.
Power BI is part of the Office 365 productivity platform and is a suite of business analytics tools used to analyze data and share insights. Organizations can monitor business operations and get answers quickly with rich dashboards accessible on every device. If your organization is not yet using powerful business intelligence visualization software, then you may be missing valuable insights. Business intelligence is one of the top trends to keep an eye on in 2017, and many companies are making the decision to embrace it.
