Power BI & the Data Driven Warehouse


The modern warehouse runs on data. Think of the systems you are using and the information each system is generating and collecting. Products scanned. Movement tracked. Every material used in the process noted. Each vendor communication recorded.

These systems often come with capabilities that allow you to create and view reports using data from that specific platform. These reports are usually descriptive and give you the information you need to react to a particular problem or trend. Since these reports are essentially pulling data from a silo, they can’t impact or add value to anything outside of what they are measuring.

With modern data visualization tools, like Microsoft Power BI, there’s never been an easier way to understand trends, patterns, and exceptions in your data. You can now shift resources from the job of creating and re-creating static reports regularly to an analytics leader who interprets the data and drives improvements.
