Make your data easier to interpret using Power BI, WCM’s official data visualization tool. Create charts, maps, and models by simply uploading data from Excel or other databases into Power BI and selecting from an extensive visualizations list.
Whether you’re a financial analyst or a researcher, Power BI will help you to create a narrative around your data and tell a compelling visual story.
Currently, ITS supports the desktop version of Power BI and a web-based version, Power BI online. Power BI allows you to:
- Connect to large data sets and a wide range of data sources
- Clean and prepare data using visual tools
- Analyze and build stunning reports with custom visualizations
Features like collaboration, secure publishing, and connectivity to internal databases (e.g., WBG) are not available yet. These will be options in the future when ITS begins offering enterprise licenses.
