Shopping is not what it used to be. Today shoppers are empowered with devices, options and more information at their fingertips. Get visibility into the insights that will make your business successful.
Deeper understanding of customers, pricing, POS, inventory and channels
The amount of data available for retailers is overwhelming: transactions, supply chain, buying behaviors, trends, multi-channel sales and global coverage are just a few of the data sources companies can use to maximize their profits.
Making sense of all these inputs requires scalability, ease of use, accessibility and live connectivity. Power BI helps bring all these data sources in one place and keeps the data current allowing you to make the right decisions at the right time. Share your retail analytics at the store, headquarters, factory or distribution center.
With Power BI, it doesn’t matter where you are, your data is always available and up date. Understand customer behavior and sentiment, online or in-store, and visualize shopper movements and interactions, identifying opportunities to better serve them and maximize revenue.
The manufacturing process needs to be a well-oiled machine to succeed and the best way of achieving that goal is to have visibility on every process while seeing the big picture.
Real time visibility into your supply chain for more efficient and faster decisions
Track key performance indicators in real time: machine utilization, process efficiency, costs, inventory levels, losses and cycle times.
Manufacturers need to collaborate, monitor and communicate on available live data to achieve operational excellence. Power BI helps your team monitor real time data from multiple sources into one dashboard and drill down to identify issues when necessary. Get real time alerts with Power BI mobile apps and make your operations more efficient to achieve greater agility and minimize response times.
Monitor your supply chain end-to-end and identify problems and bottlenecks before they reach critical processes. Share your dashboards with suppliers and partners so they can adjust to the latest information available, making your processes leaner and smarter. Monitor quality inputs and outputs from all sources, including your customers, to make quick and meaningful decisions that will improve manufacturing quality.
Professional services firms have one thing in common: their most important asset is their people. Support your professionals with the right data and technology to maximize value delivered to your clients.
Focus on your people with deeper data insights
It doesn’t matter if your firm specializes in consulting, legal services, real estate services or healthcare. Your business moves around people. You need to monitor performance with the right KPIs to maximize results and increase efficiency. You need to share that data with your people to act quickly and improve results.

Slice and dice between different locations, roles, projects and teams with ease to drive actionable insights at any level. Monitor customer satisfaction to ensure you’re delivering great value while keeping operations lean.
This report focuses on demand forecasting within the energy sector. The views provide region level energy usage status and forecast of future usage for optimizing the operations.
Storing energy is not cost-effective, so utilities and power generators need to forecast future power consumption so that they can efficiently balance the supply with the demand. During peak hours, short supply can result in power outages. Conversely, too much supply can result in waste of resources. Advanced demand forecasting techniques detail hourly demand and peak hours for a particular day, allowing an energy provider to optimize the power generation process. This report focuses on demand forecasting within the energy sector. The report provides region level energy usage status and forecast of future usage for optimizing the operations.
The ‘Energy Solution Status Summary’ page shows the overall status of energy demand of each region. User can select a single region by clicking the filter on the left to investigate each region’s status.
The ‘Energy Solution Forecast’ page shows the demand forecast results from Azure Machine Learning model and different error metrics for user to identify the quality of the model. Temperature and its forecasts are used as a feature in the machine learning model.
