Microsoft Power BI
Power BI is Microsoft’s highly popular data visualisation tool. It empowers business users at all levels to be able to self-serve, creating their own reports and dashboards to easily share insights. Power BI allows your organisation to visualise and analyse your company’s data on any device, at any time and any place.
Many of our customers are now experiencing near live, 360-degree view of their entire business in one single, visual dashboard. The majority of organisations are integrating Power BI with Office 365, Microsoft Dynamics, and SharePoint.
Power BI can be installed either on premise or in Cloud based systems such as Microsoft Dynamics CRM, Salesforce, Google Analytics, or Azure SQL server.

Simpson Associates really did come to our rescue, I am so grateful for your company’s help.”

Power BI Accelerator
Are you looking to understand how Microsoft Power BI can unlock your data? Simpson Associates have developed an engagement that allows your organisation to get the service commissioned, users trained and an initial pilot project deployed within a month.Further Details
Simpson Associates have commissioned server clusters for many customers, usually to begin project development whilst awaiting new hardware. Some organisations create backup and recovery environments, while others create SharePoint sites that are responsive to the demands of flexible business requirements. In all cases, the flexibility of the available configurations means that it is possible to commission server power as it is needed, rather than making a capital purchase that accounts for the future – thereby aligning the costs more closely with the benefits.
The Cloud is a valid choice for production environments too. We have customers who have their data warehouse environment built entirely in the Cloud, with Business Intelligence suites providing information to all company stakeholders. For some organisations, a hybrid configuration allows them to gain the maximum return on their current infrastructure; while for others, their requirement to see key performance indicators on tablets and smartphones has driven their migration to the Cloud.
It is projected that by next year (2020), 24% of IT Application spend will be based on cloud deployments and that by 2025, 80% of enterprise IT, will have moved to the Cloud, reflecting the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) nature of today’s office environment. Applications like Office 365 are key drivers of this direction of travel.
We are experts in cloud migration strategy and can help your organisation understand how the Cloud can be the best choice to meet your business requirements. From there we can demonstrate how Microsoft Azure can benefit your business and enable you to quickly realise return on investment.
Our expert team can guide you through the process, ensuring that we use the best technology and solution to suit your organisation.
