Peter Drucker once said “you can’t manage what you don’t measure.” These days, SCM organizations are all about metrics with dashboarding being the fastest-growing trend. Technology is speeding up the way we do business in every step of the value chain, and leaders increasingly rely on dashboards that can deliver accurate information and insights in real time. The game has changed…so why are you still using Excel and PowerPoint to create dashboards?

There is a better way, folks. Enter Microsoft Power BI, a suite of business analytics tools that specialize in data visualization and indeed, dashboarding.  Users can create professional-looking and interactive dashboards…all without having to depend on any IT staff or database administrators. It’s an official product of Microsoft, so it’s fully-integrated into the Office Suite and has comprehensive online and offline support. Best of all – it’s FREE!
