All BI Samurais have been hand-picked to make sure we can provide the highest quality of work. We all come from different backgrounds but still have something in common: Addiction to Microsoft Power BI. But that's not all, since Power BI projects also involve other tools like Power Apps, Power Automate, SQL, Azure, and many more, we call ourselves Samurais in these as well.
Power BI Implemention
We can implement a state-of-the-art Power BI solution from scratch or improve an existing reporting system. We've created complex custom-tailored reporting solutions for companies of all sizes and industries all around the globe. Due to our wide experience, we can work with any data source, provide helpful tips and tricks and solve all issues that might pop up along the way.
Data Warehouse Implementation
A well-working data warehouse is the foundation of most BI projects. We can help you decide what kind of data warehouse is best for you and can take care of the implementation. Our team of BI Samurais has experience with a wide range of different tools and knows what's the right solution for your business. For smaller implementations, a data warehouse might not even be needed which will reduce the running costs. As our customer, you can be sure that we only suggest tools which are really needed.
The visualization of business data can be done in many different ways but due to our experience, we know what's best and will provide state-of-the-art reports. The goal of each report is that the end-user can easily make the right business decisions without spending much time trying to figure out the report. Of course, we can also provide mobile-friendly reports.
Power BI Embedded
Power BI embedded analytics allows you to embed your Power BI content such as reports, dashboards and tiles, in a web application or in a website. Using Power BI embedded analytics you can: Deliver compelling data experiences for your end users, enabling them to take action based on insights from your solutions data.
Slow reports are simply not used by business users. They want to open a report, navigate to what is of interest, apply filters, drill down into details without having to wait after every click. Improving the performance of a slow report is a complex task as there can be many reasons why a report is slow. Since performance is a part of almost every project, we know exactly where to look for possible improvements.
To implement a reporting solution that adds value to the business, the correct KPIs need to be defined. This can be done before the implementation starts or, even better, we implement the KPIs which we think are the most important ones for your business. Due to experience in different industries, we know which key figures are driving your business. And of course, we can always add your specific KPIs as well.
In most of our projects, at least some existing reports need to be migrated to Power BI. We have worked with many reporting solutions and will be able to understand the definition of your current report and translate it into Power BI. At the same time, we improve the look-and-feel and add some fantastic Power BI functionality so your old reports will be more dynamic and actionable.
IBCS Reporting with Zebra BI
The International Business Communication Standard (IBCS) defines how business reports should look. By following a set of easy rules, each report has the same overall look and feel and is much easier to understand. We are a proud partner of Zebra BI and are using their custom visuals for Power BI and their add-in for Excel to create actionable reports.
Power Apps Implementation
Data coming from the source system is never perfect or complete. Whenever data needs to be enhanced, we prefer to use Power Apps for data entry.
One typical use case is that users should be able to comment the results in a report. This adds tremendous value to the report and makes it way more actionable.
Power Apps is the perfect solution for this.
An important part of an IT project is that the users are able to use the tools which were implemented. All our BI Samurais are very enthusiastic about the products we implement and we like to share our knowledge. We are used to providing training which is tailor-made to meet our client's needs.
Instructor-led or online Training
We offer instructor-led training which takes place either virtually or physically but we also offer online training.
Our experienced BI Samurais provide training for the following products:
- Power BI
- Power Query
- Power Pivot
- Zebra BI (Power BI and Excel)
Our mentoring service means that we will assign a BI Samurai to you. This way, you don't need to use search engines to find answers (which might be wrong) but you just reach out to your BI Samurai who will provide the solution.
