As we interact with technology leaders regularly, we often come across some common scenarios given below when it comes to the optimal usage of Power BI in their businesses.
We’d invite you to give it a complete read…
You might relate with these real-world scenarios:
The technology leader implements Power BI in his/her organization with the positive intent of extracting business intelligence out of it. They start running large volumes of data to gain insights, identify trends and make data-driven decisions.
Next, they want to visualize interactive dashboards, reports, and real-time data monitoring. In addition, they need to track key performance indicators, monitor business metrics, and gain a holistic view of their operations.
They seek to present data in a visually appealing and understandable manner to their senior management in their monthly meetings.
They wish to present charts, graphs, maps, and other visual elements to effectively communicate their data and findings.
You think we understand your Power BI needs correctly?
They try to integrate data into Power BI from different sources, including databases, spreadsheets, cloud services, and more.
All their team members should get access to reports and dashboards, not just on the desktop, but also on the go via the Power BI mobile app.
Lastly, they mention its cost effectiveness and scalability capabilities.
Technology leaders know that Power BI is one of the most cost-effective solutions compared to traditional business intelligence tools. It not just offers flexible pricing options, but also eliminates the need for significant upfront investments in hardware or infrastructure.
They also believe that Power BI is highly scalable, capable of handling small to large datasets and accommodating the needs of their growing businesses. It can easily scale up or down based on the organization’s data requirements.

When it comes to getting the most out of your Power BI investment, sometimes outside help is needed.
To elaborate, we recommend that extending your in-house team with a Power BI service provider or a technology provider will propel your efforts.
When Working with a Power BI Service Provider
There are several aspects technology leaders need to consider and check before finalizing on extending their internal team with a Power BI service provider.
Let’s prioritize the top 5 factors that are absolute essentials…
Experience and Expertise
Look for certifications, case studies, and client testimonials to gauge their proficiency in delivering Power BI solutions. Assess their understanding of your industry, domain, and market in general.
Request references from the Power BI service provider’s existing or past clients. They should be able to give references so that you gain confidence and insights into their experiences, project successes, and challenges faced while working with the provider.
Data Security Requirements
Second, you must be careful about the Power BI technology provider’s ability to handle the data security and compliance requirements. This is important because you will eventually be sharing your real data with them.
We recommend that inquire about their security measures, data encryption, access controls, and compliance with relevant regulations, depending on your industry.
Project Management Methodologies
Third, understand how the Power BI service provider manages their Power BI projects. Inquire about their project management methodologies, communication processes, timelines, and milestones. A well-structured project management approach ensures smooth implementation.
Support and Maintenance Capabilities
Fourth, you must check with the Power BI consulting company’s post-implementation support and maintenance offerings. Ensure they provide timely support, troubleshooting assistance, and updates to keep your Power BI environment running smoothly.
Cost and Contract Implications
Lastly, discuss pricing models, licensing, and contract terms with the Power BI implementation company. Clarify the cost implications, licensing requirements, and ongoing maintenance fees to align with your organization’s budget and expectations.
After you check all the 5 aspects above,
- Deep dive into the types of service you need.
- Enlist what all you need to the last word.
- Combine & customize the services that fit your business like a glove.
- Adjust the services to fit your budget – what is urgent vs important.
