DMC's Approach to Business Intelligence
Regardless of where you store your data, we can leverage your existing investments in SQL, SharePoint, Office 365, Dynamics 365, and Microsoft Office to provide cost-effective solutions. With the latest tools and self-service functionality, you don't have heavy upfront costs or need continuous IT involvement. We can also provide Microsoft licensing expertise for the suite of Business Intelligence products.
As a Microsoft Partner, we consult on the use of Microsoft Power BI, SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS), and custom-developed .NET & SQL tools. We also have a team of developers capable of integrating diverse databases, web services, and third-party platforms.
Microsoft Power BI
Power BI makes it easy to connect your reports and dashboards to disparate data sources. Power BI can natively connect to databases and services on premises or in the cloud such as SQL, Oracle, SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, Dynamics 365, Salesforce, Excel workbooks, and many other third-party systems. There is no need for a developer to configure connection strings or complicated ETL (Extract, Transform, and Load) processes. Power BI is also an integral component of Microsoft's Azure IoT platform.
Power BI's utilization of HTML5 and specially-developed phone and tablet apps allow for access from almost any device. Combined with real-time, cloud-based data connections, data is available 24/7 from anywhere.
