Microsoft BI for Retail

Microsoft’s Business Intelligence (Power BI) is a feature-rich data mash up and report authoring tool that enables retailers to visualize data and give employees access to insights about customer engagement, patterns and loyalty through differentiated customer experiences. Power BI comes with a suite of reporting, forecasting and analytical tools that provide a real-time access to enterprise data whether it’s sales trends micro segmented by demographics and geography, or predictive modelling for accurate forecasting. 

Dashboards of Power BI provide a 360-degree view for business users with their most important metrics in one place, updated in real time, and available on all of their devices. With one click, users can explore the data behind their dashboard using intuitive tools that make finding answers easy. Power BI helps unify all of organization’s data, whether in the cloud or on-premises.

Especially in retail environments, effective promotion plays a major role in product awareness and sales. With Power BI, Analysts can view past performance at stores to gain insight into how discounts for different item categories and geographies may have improved overall sales.
