Reporting in business systems has changed substantially within the past five years. Companies now use reporting as a core business aspect beyond traditional line-level reports. Modern reporting creates experiences for end-users that are easy to manage and react to. This is major in the agriculture industry, where simplicity and ease of use are core industry components.

How Can Power BI Help Your Business?

Microsoft Platform was created with the idea that more capabilities can be added for a more personalized user experience. Power BI is designed to be well-integrated into the Microsoft Platform and offer a rich integration with Dynamics. With Power BI, data can be easily managed by end users to create reports at every level of your organization. This user-friendly service tackles requirements for business processes. Power BI has the benefit of a huge ecosystem comprised of users and partners who are great resources for related questions.

Enabling Digital Transformation

The concept of digital transformation is relevant to Microsoft’s current strategy. Microsoft’s four key focus points include modern workplace, business applications, applications & infrastructure, and data & AI. Their goal is to empower, engage, optimize, and transform each segment to provide tools for users like yourself in the agriculture business.

Digital transformation is driven by data. Instead of focusing on the interfaces or applications that drive how we interact with data, Microsoft’s development strategy focuses on making data more intelligent. Intelligent data connects and synthesizes across the business, helping end-users make more informed decisions and improve business outcomes.

Power BI and the Microsoft platform have greatly improved over the past several years. Built on the Power Platform, Power BI creates reports that easily join data together. Beyond just creating reports, the Power Platform is a toolset that allows users to act, automate, and analyze. Users can act on this platform by creating an application called a Power App. Data can be automated via Flow or Power Automate. Analysis is done using data intelligence to learn additional details about a particular topic.

Data is at the center of the Microsoft platform. Using data, the Power Platform utilizes its components interchangeably to give users the most powerful data analysis possible.

Power BI Tools

Conveniently, Power BI tools are designed for end-users and do not require a developer to create. Developers, however, can create more complex applications or BI reporting tools to tackle complex scenarios.
