If you understand the importance and value of business intelligence tools but are struggling to maximise the potential of Power BI within your organisation, you are not alone.
Many CFOs and Business Intelligence specialists we work with find that a lack of strategy, governance, and infrastructure has diluted their enterprises’ trust and value in Power BI.
As Power BI has become more widely adopted, you may have noticed a de-centralisation of the solution overtime. You may be experiencing multiple cases of data replication, a general loss of the larger interests of the enterprise, duplication of staff effort, no decision-making being made from the reports provided, loss of control, lack of confidence in outputs, cases of misuse and little to no collaboration. If this sounds familiar, it is likely an indication that you are not getting ‘bang for your buck’ when it comes to your Power BI.
So what does a successful Power BI use-case look like?
The companies achieving the most success from Power BI are those that have clearly defined Power BI creators, who provide actionable, business critical reports ready for end-users. These are the most common traits we see in successful implementation and use-case scenarios:
1. Their organisation has championed standardisation and governance of Power BI
2. They have carefully defined roles, including well trained creator/s and end-users
3. They have built dashboards and reports based on KPIs and are working towards a common goal
