Microsoft’s Power BI is a game-changer for data visibility and improved decision-making and so it is no surprise that so many organisations have deployed it or intend to do so.
You may well be amongst those that use it on a daily basis or have started to explore it. But here are some features of Power BI you may not be aware of:
Defining reporting standards and governing processes to collect and share data is a core remit of the PMO, aiming to deliver visibility of portfolios and projects to decision makers.
So the PMO always aims to be data-driven, yet that doesn’t mean a data-driven culture is an inevitable outcome. There certainly are challenges in establishing such a culture – but we believe there is no platform like the Microsoft Power Platform to help you put the essential tools in place to make it happen.
Project for the Web was built by Microsoft to deliver ease of use for project planners and teams. Our customers love its attractive user interface, the ease of sharing projects with team members, the ability to adjust online timelines and many other features.
But it’s worth taking a look under the hood to consider the infrastructure that it was built on Microsoft’s Power platform. It may not be immediately obvious how significant this platform is to the future of the product, as well as to organisations who choose to adopt it.
Why do organisations implement Project and Portfolio Management systems?
Invariably a key objective is gaining control and visibility of the project portfolio. We want to gather project information efficiently and turn it into insights to be shared with stakeholders promptly.
Power Framework is a great tool to rapidly implement a highly personalised project database and adopt a consistent process framework. It’s the combination with Power BI that raises this solution to another level.
