Power BI migrations

Power BI migration services

Experience the Power of Microsoft Power BI.

If you’re on an Office 365 E5 licence, you already have a powerful BI and Visual Analytics tool at your disposal… so why are you paying for expensive third-party solutions from IBM or Qlik?

By migrating your existing platform to Power BI, you’ll be able to integrate into the greater Microsoft environment and benefit from value-adds that other services just can’t deliver.  

These include: 

  • AI & computer learning via Microsoft Azure 
  • Direct Query to Azure-based resources (e.g. Azure SQL Server or Analysis Services) 
  • Live update &/or data ingestion capabilities using Azure Stream Analytics 
  • Better protection when paired with Microsoft Information Protect & Cloud App Security
  • Easy integration into project management & collaboration platforms like Microsoft Teams 
  • Simple internal & external sharing – no need to provision servers, web-servers or DMZs 

Ensure a Smooth Migration to Microsoft Power BI.

While Power BI deployments are possible to DIY – particularly if you have an experienced data analytics/modelling team – it’s often faster and smoother to use a partner like Cloud Essentials to do the heavy lifting and environment setup for you. 

Areas in which we can be particularly useful include: 

  • Deploying Power BI as part of bigger changes like Office 365 and/or Azure Migrations 
  • Migrating third-party apps such as Oracle BI Reports and Qlik to Microsoft Power BI.
  • Integrating Power BI into an existing Office 365 and/or Azure Environment
  • Doing data and dashboard preparation in sensitive, complicated or time-pressured situations, including: 
    • Cleaning & preparing data for ingestion 
    • Accurate data mapping
    • Ensuring data model integrity for trustworthy insights 
    • Building intuitive dashboards to provide at-a-glance insights with detailed drill-down potential
