Client Testimonials

Testimonial Icon
The Data Insights team is dependable and accessible. Whenever I have an issue with Power BI, I can reach out via email and their experts respond with a quick answer they have figured out themselves or involved Microsoft and done a screen share to figure out our problem within a couple of days. They have vast knowledge in different visualization techniques and offer different ways to look at data that I maybe wouldn’t have even thought of before. For example, I submitted a question to them asking which visualization would highlight areas where we might be losing margin. Now, instead of having to look through all the pertinent invoices, all this data is easily accessible in Power BI. We can show performance over time, analyze that data, and identify insights on improving those margins.

The historical Power BI methodology hinges too much on the IT department to understand the calculations, models, and needs of every department requiring reporting data. Power BI and supporting components of the new data delivery model allow for more self-service Business Intelligence. While this new method of separating data architecture from self-service analysis is possible, it takes a considerable understanding of the latest in the DAX analysis language. The Data Insights team has been an indispensable mentor for our Analysts in transitioning to this new language as well as in helping our Data Architect build a newer Tabular ‘Big Data’ architecture.
