Microsoft hails data as the new electricity, and it’s treating it as such, designing new abilities for organizations to use it more efficiently to gain actionable insights and power business decisions.
In July, Microsoft announced new enterprise-ready intelligent business apps like Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Microsoft AppSource. Additionally, Microsoft is empowering deeper intelligence from data, with embedded intelligence and predictive analytics delivery through several tools:
Power BI Embedded GA
Power BI publish to web GA
Power Bi publish to web, now generally available at no additional cost to existing Power BI Free and Pro users, allows users to embed interactive Power BI visualizations directly in blogs and websites. For some great inspiration on telling data-based narratives, check out the Power BI Data Stories Gallery. You can find examples ranging from how to perform Online Sentiment Analysis, Sales Reports, Marketing Analytics Reports, to the below exploration of DC vs. Marvel movies.
Cortana Intelligence with Bing Predicts Program
Cortana Intelligence with Bing Predicts is an end-to-end consulting program that lets users augment their Cortana Intelligence Suite solutions for more accurate outcomes by leveraging Microsoft’s unique body of social, search and web data.
Microsoft Commitment to Data Visualization
Using both Azure Resource Manager APIs and Power BI APIs, users can automate deployment and scale. They can now programmatically provision Power BI workspaces, create datasets and reports, embed reports in their apps, and control refresh behavior and credentials. Additionally IT teams can control costs with pay-as-you-go, consumption-based pricing models with no hidden upfront costs or maintenance fees.
Advancements in tools like Power BI, Delve Analytics, and Cortana Intelligence designed to help organizations capture and leverage data like never before showcase Microsoft’s commitment to the democratization of data. Power BI and Delve Analytics are available in enterprise versions of Office 365.
