How Power BI Can Help Visual Data In The Modern Workplace

Power BI has always been a helpful tool for creating charts with complex data. Traditionally Power BI was limited to on-premise data sets, though. Because of that, its feature set has been limited. Since Microsoft migrated Power BI to the cloud and started offering it as a cloud service, the floodgates have opened with how Power BI can be used.

Power BI can connect to more data sources now. Those data sources can exist in databases, data lakes, Excel sheets, or raw data storage. Power BI connects to various data sources and helps merge data.

Though Power BI already includes a full set of open-source data visualization models, it's also compatible with various programming languages like JQuery and R. Developers can use the Power BI SDK to create custom data visualization dashboards to present data as organizations need.

Presenting data isn't Power BI's only trick, though. It's a great data mining tool as well. Power BI has a natural language search tool where data can be mined and presented through natural language search queries like what Google offers for general web searches.

Power BI has a lot more tools, too. This article is only a brief primer for what Power BI offers, so it's recommended that anyone interested in the Power BI platform to dig into it further to see the whole host of tools that this service offers.
