Dreaming of a dashboard that automatically refreshes with real-time data from several systems?

The Microsoft SharePoint and Power BI platforms can make this dream a reality. Integrating a Power BI dashboard with SharePoint or Teams is just one commonly overlooked way to maximize the benefit and return on an Office 365 investment.

Microsoft's Power BI platform supports the aggregation and blending of data from a wide variety of data sources, including:

  • Accounting and ERP e.g. Dynamics, MAS 90, SAP, QuickBooks
  • Customer relationship management e.g. Dynamics CRM, Goldmine, Salesforce
  • Social media web services e.g. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn
  • Any relational database e.g. SQL Server, Oracle, DB2
  • Most custom applications and third-party software packages

Dashboards are a cost effective way to tap into your existing technology investments and share the information with the people in your organization who need it most.

Key Benefits

Management by Exception
DMC has deep experience helping businesses create precise visual representations of key performance indicator metrics. Once your dashboard is in place, you can quickly identify the business areas needing attention so you can focus on solving the problem instead of generating reports.

Dashboard Automation is the Key
The key to making a Dashboard effective is automation. The manual process of collecting data every day/week/month/quarter is just too much work for managers and executives who need accurate and real-time information to make the right decisions.

Results-Oriented Information
Gain unique business insight by aggregating and blending data together from multiple sources. Manage by exception through automated tracking of results against pre-defined Red/Yellow/Green success thresholds. Avoid being blindsided with advanced warning of business downturns and upswings.
