Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Power BI Embedded

There are two main ways in which we use Microsoft Power BI Embedded in The University of Sydney (in the context of academic / teaching staff in the School of Architecture, Design, and Planning). Firstly, Power BI is used to provide information about the students that are enrolled in different study units. This includes such information as country of origin, age, chosen degree, first language, grades, etc. This information is visualised as bar, radial, or line charts, which are very intuitive to use and understand. It is also easy to sort and search for required information. This is really helpful for me as a course coordinator because it allows me to know my students better and adjust my courses delivery accordingly. Secondly, Power BI is used to communicate information about our teaching loads. Again it is a pretty intuitive tool with an easy-to-use interface, which is able to communicate complex data in a very engaging way.
  • visualizes complex data (from excel tables)
  • engaging look
  • easy embedding to web
  • it mostly only allows one way interactions
  • user interface can be improved
  • limits on including data
  • regular updates
  • integration with excel
  • cost effective tool
  • customisable and engaging visualisations
  • saving time, because users can understand information better
  • better communication of information compared to simple data tables
This tool is perfectly integrated with the rest of the Microsoft applications (such as Excel) that we use in our university.
