Power BI – making the most of your data

Gain new insights into your Business Central data with Power BI. Power BI is Microsoft’s data visualisation platform and comes with a set of reports pre-defined for Business Central online. Whilst Business Central offers its own set of creating graphs and charts, Power BI takes it to a new level. The level of opportunity for the user to be creative in how they display their data is limitless.

With Power BI you can build dashboards and reports based on one or multiple companies. Drill down into the data and customise how it’s presented, and even merge data from your other systems or external sources. Complex dashboards are best experienced from the Power BI portal but simpler graphs can be embedded directly into Business Central.


Manage your entire business

Combine data from a wide variety of sources such as cloud-based or on-premise databases, third party services or Excel spreadsheets.

Real time reports are available on your desktop, tablet or mobile phone.  Power Bi lets you visualise your data in compelling charts that refresh automatically to provide up to the minute information. 


Financial Control

Be informed when data changes by setting up alerts or scheduling reports to be emailed directly to you.  From factory sensors, to environmental data or social media, you can access real-time analytics from diverse sources with real meaning to your business.

Make your insights work for you by using the Microsoft Power Platform. Combine Power BI with other tools from the Power Platform, such as Power Apps and Power Automate, to automate workflows and build applications that help the business react to opportunities or problems faster.
