So much data. So many users. What's an IT pro to do? Self-service business intelligence (BI) frees users to mine data like never before. And IT BI professionals support their efforts with analyses, reports, and dashboards. But how can business and IT teams work together for a more holistic approach? Many organizations are turning to Microsoft BI tools, which bring you the next generation of data visualization and monitoring with Power BI, Power Query, and Power View in Excel. And Microsoft recently announced a new add-in to connect with SAP BusinessObjects BI, offering even greater reliability, insights, and governance.
