Power BI

Power BI is the Ballard Chalmers tool of choice for developing reports and dashboards. With Power BI embedded used for embedding reports into the applications that we develop for our clients.

We also develop data warehouses and Power BI data models that allow our clients’ Power users to self-serve and create their own dashboards and reports form their own data.

You can find out more about our work with Power BI in our Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence page.

The standard produced from this partnership was vibrant and informative for the team. The Databix Vision and outcomes have grown substantially since the data cubes were handed over. The implementation of the cubes and the descriptions around measures enabled the developers to create many layers of business intelligence from a Sales and Stock perspective.
