How to Read Your Business Insights in Real Time?

How to Read Your Business Insights in Real Time?
February 24, 2019 Data Semantics Staff

Although newly developed Business Insights tools like Power BI, Tableau or Qlik Sense have come close to producing reports swiftly from large amounts of data, we are yet to evolve to meet the key demand in businesses — reading data in real time. 

 Problems in interpreting Business Insights 

Reading business insights can be quite a cumbersome task, especially when your business operations produce large amounts of data. 

  1. No access to relevant information 

Stakeholders in a company have access to limited KPI metrics restricting them to have prompt access to other pertinent business information. In some cases, learning about these metrics can take up to 3 days. 

Take boardroom meetings for an instance. Most boardroom meetings have essential stakeholders from different departments to discuss the performance of their operations and take critical business decisions. Such stakeholders are puzzled about the relevance of data with respect to other departments until they meet. This leads to tautological dependencies and misuse of valuable time.

  1. Limited knowledge of Business Insights tools

Business leaders and Business Analysts need to constantly learn about new Business Intelligence tools and persistently strive to adjust to new ecosystems. This is highly inconvenient in terms of the time invested and the effort required for them to generate reports, instead of imbuing time for decision-making. 

  1. Challenge to gather data from disparate data sources

It is difficult to integrate huge amounts of data, especially when it’s gathered from disparate data sources for creating BI reports. Configuring BI systems to generate reports for multiple business operations is an intricate task. 

  1. Unfriendly user experience on Business Insights tools

The unfriendly user experience of BI tools consumes a lot of unnecessary time, leading to cumbersome and unpleasant experiences to generate BI reports. Compromised UX simply doesn’t make sense! It often leads to procrastination or not achieving your end goal with BI applications.

 Benefits of using Power BI on Voice Assistants

Seamless reporting using voice assistants sounds exceptionally realistic in every scenario for any stakeholder. 

  1. Real-time reporting 

Get real time reports, anytime, anywhere! You could use the voice assistant in your boardroom, on your desk or your cell phone to get Business Insight reports in real-time. All it takes is saying, “Alexa, show me the sales revenue for the last quarter” and boom! you have Alexa telling you the exact insights you asked for. 

  1. Seamless user experience

Dashboards and buttons are passé! Get rid of redundant processes to access your business insights. All you need is a clear voice and specific intonations to talk to your voice assistant. 

  1. Reduced dependency on Business Intelligence tools

You don’t need to understand or learn the technicalities of Business Intelligence tools. You could access the dashboard of your BI platform directly from your voice assistant by connecting it to any display or by simply listening to the KPI metrics.

    I have requested information three times about your Alexa / Power BI integration.

    Is it just demoware or is it commercially available ?
    Will it work with any data sources e.g through SSAS using Enterprise Gateway or does it just work with internal PBIX files ?
    Please reply as we are very interested in this technology
