Many organisations have lots of valuable information sitting in a range of systems and data silos which can be viewed in isolation, but not together.

However, when you merge all of your data sources and allow them to be viewed together, interesting trends emerge. For example, the frequency with which your Account Managers meet with their customers (logged as activities in your CRM) may have a direct bearing on the time before accounts receivable notices they’ve paid their bill (recorded in your ERP).

This is exactly the kind of insights that Microsoft Power BI enables you learn.
