  • After the different areas start using Microsoft Power BI we start making better business decisions based on Data.
  • I believe that investment in Power BI is small compared with the tool and information provided when we use it.
  • A negative point is that you might need specialized people to create the report and maintain the infrastructure.

  • We have improved customer retention by immediately alerting us when revenue drops. It has helped us make sense of a lot of data that we had assumed was useless. Now we analyze all data.
  • It facilitates QBR/customer conversations by providing data on demand. Everyone has adopted it because of its ease of use—no need to hire a dedicated data analytics team.
  • This way, we can see which product areas the customer uses. To meet our customers' needs and keep their content intact, we build custom dashboards on [Microsoft] Power BI.

  • It has allowed us to make sense of so much unused data that we had prematurely assumed was of no use and futile. Now we make sure all data is analyzed in some way or form.
  • Because of its user-friendly nature, every team has adopted it to fulfill their own analytical needs. Because of this, we have saved costs as we didn't have to hire a dedicated analytics team for data analysis needs.
  • As our SaaS platform doesn't have a strong in-built data analytics function, we create custom dashboards on Power BI and share them with our customers to fulfill their requirements and keep them content and retained.

  • Improved customer retention, since we can see when revenue drops off, and immediately be alerted of this change.
  • Better QBR/Customer conversations since we can drill down and have data at our fingertips
  • Improved customer journey and milestone analysis - that way we see all of the areas of the product that the customer is using or not.

  • With [Microsoft] Power BI you can create and publish very cool reports from scratch in just a few minutes, and that's very important to the client.
  • [Microsoft] Power BI Pro can be used in the most of the projects and companies with a very little annual budget.
  • With the trial version you can create powerful demos and make effective pre-sales.
