Microsoft Power BI, the absolute leader in Business Intelligence and Data Analytics tools


We conclude our journey in stages to discover all of Microsoft's Power Platform products. After having shown you the enormous potential of Power Automate, Power Apps, Power Virtual Agents we close with Microsoft Power BI.


Microsoft Power BI is a platform designed by Microsoft to analyze and compare data from different sources with the ability to create advanced analysis dashboards with interactive, dynamic and attractive layouts.

Through a collection of software services, apps and connectors it is possible to integrate different data sources into a coherent set of information. Power BI allows you to easily connect to data sources of any nature (an Excel spreadsheet, cloud-based warehouses or local hybrids) to process and share important information.

Microsoft's solution is unparalleled in the Business Intelligence and Data Analytics tools market, and this is confirmed every year (and with increasing margins) by Gartner's Magic Quadrant, the tool par excellence for comparing BI systems that takes into account the main providers of analytics products and services currently active in the market and presents the competitive positioning of each one, while unravelling their strengths and weaknesses. Microsoft Power BI has been the Magic Quadrant leader for 13 years for product completeness, positive sales experience, intuitive user experience and customer satisfaction.

This is because Microsoft's tool offers, in a single solution:

  • Connecting, importing and processing data from a variety of different sources;
  • Discovery of data based on visual;
  • Interactive dashboards;
  • Enhanced analysis.

These characteristics facilitate the distribution and adaptability of the product with respect to the peculiarities and needs of the company and the need for analysis, strengthening the reliability of the instrument and Customer Satisfaction.

The elements that make up Power BI are:

  • A Windows desktop application called Power BI Desktop;
  • An online SaaS (Software as a Service) service called Power BI service;
  • Power BI mobile app for Windows, iOS and Android devices;
  • Power BI Report Server, which allows you to publish Power BI reports to a local report server after creation in Power BI Desktop.
