Peter Drucker was a well known management consultant. Peter invented the concept known as “management by objectives” and a famous quote attributed him is
“If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.”
From this quote we see why an organisation needs “Incredible Insights” into their data. If you can’t measure how your processes or your organisation is doing then how can you start to improve?
Analysing the data in your organisation provides those incredible insights required to improve your processes and business. You can identify areas that aren’t performing as optimally as they could, identify opportunities to expand and boost performance in areas that are already doing well.

Once the data is connected to Power BI it can be easily queried, inspected and reported on. You will very soon able to spot long-term patterns, such as the price of raw materials at certain times of the year or spikes in sales in other parts of the year.

The introduction of Power BI to organisations has lead to many “What’s that?” moments as business owners and or / subject matter experts see some key performance indicators for the first time and it drives them to investigate and where needed improve. They’ve measured the process / business and made improvements all through the use of Power BI.
Historically this process has been difficult, expensive and time consuming but not any more thanks to Power BI.
