Microsoft Power BI Services
Microsoft’s mission statement is to “empower every person and organisation on the planet to achieve more.” By changing the way that we use software in the work place, Microsoft is developing new ways to make business more efficient and effective, empowering employees so they can achieve more and in turn doing things that make a difference.
Microsoft’s Data Visualisation tool ‘Power BI’ is just one of the tools that Microsoft believe will help organisations to achieve more. It allows anyone to visualise and to analyse data, on any device, anywhere.
With Power BI you can experience a near live, 360-degree view of your entire business in a single dashboard. Additionally, Power BI seamlessly integrates with Office 365; Dynamics; and SharePoint, allowing many organisations to see it as a natural extension to their current Microsoft investment.

As a Microsoft Gold Partner for Data Platform and Analytics and a Cloud Platform partner, we are practicing what we preach and we believe that we have the necessary skills and experience to help you in your quest for increased productivity.
“We looked at some of the major consultancies but they do many things and are not necessarily subject matter experts which we knew we needed. We wanted someone that lived and breathed data.Alex MacGregor-Devlin IT Director, INSE
We knew Simpson Associates from a past relationship and they were able to demonstrate their experience of working with both our incumbent solution and with SQL, Microsoft BI and Sharepoint.

Going forward we’re going to develop a suite of reports in Power BI to give detailed analysis at people’s fingertips.”Steven Hood, Commercial Accountant
