It is nice to Share!!!

It’s finally here…Shared Datasets. With Shared Datasets in Power BI, you now have the ability to have a single dataset to be used by multiple reports and workspaces. This new feature and functionality will allow you to copy existing reports across workspaces or if you choose, to build new reports based on datasets in different workspaces. With Certified Datasets, organizations now have a mechanism to distinguish the most valued and trusted datasets. Certified datasets show up prominently so users can easily find these authoritative data sources.

It’s All about The Power BI User

BI is a collaborative process. To build a data culture, everyone in an organization needs to have access and capabilities to easily work with data. Microsoft has been cognizant to create intuitive features within Power BI and create data experiences that are simplistic and easy to grasp.  The more comfortable the Power BI user…the more they will interact with the data within Power BI…the more insights they’ll obtain. The following are the user interface updates that people are talking about:

 

  • New look for Power BI Desktop: Power BI Desktop allows “citizen analysts” to explore data, get answers, and make decisions without relying on learning specialized skills. It employs the familiar PowerPoint experience to accelerate the ability to perform data analysis regardless of role.
  • New look for the Power BI service: A new consumption experience including new navigation UI elements to match the consistent fluent design language allowing users to find and consume content more easily.
  • Siri Shortcuts: Power BI Mobile iOS app is now integrated with Siri shortcuts. Now, you’ll be able to just say “Hey Siri, open my report” and you’ll get the content you’re looking for. 
  • Visual level filtering on slicers: Visual level filters for slicers!!! Enough Said!!!!!!!

These are only a few of the monthly feature updates and Microsoft releases more each month. To learn more about Power BI or how Vizion360 can make business intelligence a successful reality for your organization, contact our Power BI Center of Excellence!
