When you first encounter the world of Power BI, it’s very easy to become overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information out there and all the amazing new things you can do with the technology. Understanding exactly what Power BI can do for your business and how to implement it; that’s where a Power BI consultant can help you. Instead of you spending weeks struggling to get Power BI to give you the data you need, a Power BI consultant can help you get to grips with everything about Power BI, support you in putting it all in place, and make sure you don’t make any major mistakes as you learn the ropes.
Professional Advice, Every Time
One of the biggest advantages of hiring us as your Power BI consultancy is that it gives you access to experts. This is something you are probably familiar with already – after all, you may be an absolute expert in your field and people come to you when they need information about what you do, and a Power BI consultant is an encyclopaedia of everything you need to know about Power BI, and is ready and willing to pass that expertise onto you. With a consultant on side, you can gain all the advantages of a detailed understanding and years of experience of Power BI, without having to invest all of that time yourself. So if you’re looking for expert advice, the best thing you can do is seek out an expert and learn from them. That’s one of the biggest advantages of hiring a Power BI consultant for your business.
Get Big Insights into Your Data
Your business holds a lot of data – more than you probably realise. At the moment, a lot of it is sitting just under the surface, untapped, but just waiting to be found. Power BI can give you the power to use your data to make better business decisions and improve your processes across the board, once you understand how to use the tools. That’s where online tutorials will let you down because your business will have a unique way of storing, using and interacting with data. Our Power BI consultants can help you understand your business data and create personalised scripts, dashboards and reports specifically for your way of working. We can also help you combine on-premises and cloud-born data into a single view, giving you the ability to monitor your most important data at the touch of a button. And not only will we help you understand how to do it all and what it all means, but we will also help you actually do it too.
A Support Network
Power BI is not a simple thing to learn, and there are plenty of things that can go wrong along the way. Mistakes are made, things change, and your needs evolve as time goes on. If this happens to you, it can be difficult to work out where you went wrong and how to fix it, you might even have to start all over again. But our Power BI consultants can help you understand how Power BI works, and provide a constant support network while you use it. This means we understand your business and your processes, we know what it is you need to achieve, and we know how to deliver what you require. Hiring us as your Power BI consultant means you can have access to expert support and advice as and when you need it, any time.
One of the benefits of Power BI is its ability to produce real results quickly. But since it’s a software (and not sentient), you can only get results out of it if you know how best to use it. Our Power BI consultants can help you navigate all of the issues you might come across in the early days of using Power BI, get you set up with the right configuration and make sure you don’t make fundamental errors. We can help you get everything set up and working, and take part in the ongoing monitoring to ensure you’re getting exactly what you need. This means you can start analysing your most recent business data much faster and use it to make informed decisions.
As with every specialist skill, you will need to decide if you want to hire in a new member of staff with the skills you need, train one of your existing staff, or outsource your needs to a third party. Each has its pros and cons, but when it comes to Power BI the fact is there aren’t many people looking for roles with the experience you need, and it can be expensive to hire and train an employee. As Power BI consultants, we have been using Power BI since day 1, and have a passion for helping your business get the most from it. Our hourly and monthly costs are much lower than hiring or training an employee and will give you a far greater return on your investment too.
At XL Intelligence, we specialise in helping businesses get the most out of their data using Power BI. As well as running a range of training courses, we offer bespoke Power BI consultation services that allow you to access all of our experience and knowledge as and when you need it. With our help, your business can see the many benefits of using Power BI to its fullest without the cost of hiring an expert on permanent staff.
