Power BI integration


Power BI : Microsoft's reporting solution

Microsoft Power BI is a reporting tool that enables CIOs and other stakeholders in the company to create custom dashboards and reports from a variety of data sources.

The solution, ergonomic and intuitive, offers advanced data visualization features, such as sophisticated graphs, maps, trees and several other types of useful representations of your data (hundreds of visualizations available).

Power BI also offers native integration with commonly used BI tools such as Excel or SQL Server, as well as built-in AI capabilities to extract the most relevant insights. For example, using the Report Builder tool, that can integrate with SQL Server Reporting Services, paginated reports can be created from various data sources.

Collaboration is also possible by allowing users to easily share their dashboards and reports with their colleagues, which facilitates combined and synchronized decision-making.

Finally, in terms of security, the reporting data is protected using dedicated features, such as privacy labels, double encryption, or real-time access control.
