  • Power BI for Office 365 Brings Self-Service Business Intelligence to the Cloud

    Posted by Amy Green
    Director, Worldwide Marketing and Operations

    Yesterday at the Worldwide Partner Conference, Microsoft announced Power BI for Office 365, a new self-service business intelligence (BI) solution delivered through Excel and Office 365, which provides businesses with data analysis and visualization capabilities to derive deeper insights from both their on-premises and cloud data.

    Business data continues to grow at an exponential rate and employees are trying to make sense of the flood of incoming information in a more simplified, intuitive manner. Power BI for Office 365 dramatically reduces the barriers for businesses of all sizes to use and deploy familiar, yet powerful, self-service BI tools.
