Microsoft Power BI

Discover insights

hidden in your data


Power BI is Microsoft’s self-service business intelligence (BI) tool that brings powerful data analytics to your employees and enables people at every level of your organisation to make data-driven decisions.

Power BI enables you to visualise and analyse data with greater speed, efficiency, and understanding. It connects users to a broad range of cloud-based and on-premises data through easy-to-use dashboards, and interactive reports that bring data to life.

Easily create and share interactive data visualisations using real-time analytics from virtually any data source, to meet your reporting, compliance and regulation needs.

“Working with data analytics aligned closely to our cloud project. We were able to take data coming from the cloud and visualise it.” – Craig Holt, Head of Information Technology, Knight Frank Australia


Is Microsoft Power BI right for your business?

To stay ahead of the pack, modern businesses need to be able to ensure that their data is trustworthy and presented in a way that is easily accessible, in order to ensure they’re able to continue making smart, data-driven decision making. That’s why, no matter where you are on your Power BI Journey, Data#3 has a solution that can help you take the next step.

Which option best suits your business?


1. Power BI Exploration Workshop

“I want to understand the benefits of Power BI for my organisation.”

Data#3’s Power BI Exploration Workshop is best suited to those organisations who may be just getting started on their data journey and want to know more about how Power BI fits and what it can help you achieve.

The Power BI Exploration Workshop is a half-day workshop where our expert Data & Analytics team will work with you and your team to understand what’s possible with Power BI and what the best practices are for Power BI deployment and adoption.

Following your workshop, you’ll then be presented with a Power BI Success Plan, which outlines your current data analytics capabilities and how Power BI can help you get to where you want to be, as well as providing a roadmap that can be used as a model for developing Power BI reports and planning successful adoption.

2. Power BI Adoption Review

“I want to get more out of my Power BI investment.”

Data#3’s Power BI Adoption Review is best suited to those organisations who have already deployed Power BI but are struggling to achieve widespread adoption and realise the true potential of their investment.

There are two goals behind the Power BI Adoption Review: to identify the current state of Power BI usage across your organisation and any current barriers to adoption you may be experiencing and to provide guidance on how you can improve overall Power BI Adoption.

We achieve this by employing a number of complementary methods to make an initial assessment of where your Power BI adoption currently is and what gaps you’ll need help filling to improve it.

We then develop a set of strategies and recommendations based on best practices from our own decades of experience, the Data Management Body of Knowledge and Microsoft’s own best practice guidance that can be used to improve adoption within your organisation.

We also offer add-ons to the Power BI Adoption Review to improve business stakeholder engagement and to assess your broader data platform and data governance capabilities.

3. Data Platform Architecture Review

“I need an in-depth review of our Power BI investment.”

Data#3’s Data Platform Architecture Review is best suited to those organisations with well-established Power BI usage and a complex data environment that may have outgrown their initial Power BI implementation strategy.

Most Power BI implementation takes place organically, which works initially but as your organisation grows and your reporting needs become more complex, the way that your data is ingested and visualised can often lead to data quality issues. This in turn makes it increasingly difficult to trust the insights your data have to offer, meaning that you’re no longer making those data-driven decisions that help you stand out from the crowd.

The Data Platform Architecture Review addresses these challenges through a series of workshops, a technical health check of your Power BI configuration and a review of your existing data environment, in order to help you create a consolidated data single-source-of-truth and enable self-service Power BI reporting capabilities.

As part of the review, our expert Data & Analytics team will also walk you through a report that provides tangible recommendations on how you can improve your data, analytics and reporting platform.

Customer Story: Knight Frank Australia

As part of a transition to the cloud, the Knight Frank team knew that harnessing their data assets via Power BI was essential to the plan.

“We manage portfolios like office buildings and shopping centres, and were able to use financial data around rents, outgoings, and electricity and water utilities, and analyse sustainability goals, in a number of initiatives. We could share that data with customers… which means they are getting paid quicker, and have access to better, up-to-date communications with retailers, giving them better visibility.”
