Data Visualization : Data visualization is the graphical representation of information and data. By using visual elements like charts, graphs, and maps, data visualization tools provide an accessible way to see and understand trends, outliers, and patterns in data.Before we discuss the two main BI tools below, it is important to take a moment to understand why these tools can help your organization.Business Intelligence is part of data analytics. BI uses data to help organizations make smarter decisions based on past results. Because of this focus on the past, business intelligence is often called descriptive analytics since it describes what already happened in the organization.The main benefit of BI tools like the ones below is they aggregate the data in a central visual dashboard. Businesses can share these dashboards with their management teams as reports.Many BI tools today have expanded past the basic visual dashboards they were in the past to include predictive analytics features. Predictive analytics predicts enterprise’s future events based on past events and artificial intelligence. As organizations send more data to their business intelligence solution, its power of prediction increases.By looking at the organizations’ story, executives can decide the best course of action. As BI tools improve, they learn how to help executives improve their decisions. This is called prescriptive analytics.Prescriptive analytics examines the possible outcomes from each recommendation and then offers what the computer believes is the best outcome possible. Tableau vs  Microsoft Power BI  Tableau Description- Like the other BI tools we mentioned above, Tableau transforms data into actionable insights. They have a great tool for creating ad hoc analyses and visual dashboards.Benefits– The Tableau Creator has great visualization features and is easy-to-use. They started offering free services for a year to teachers and students with the COVID-19 pandemic.Other features and benefits include:Easy-to-use drag & drop productsIntegrations with spreadsheets, databases, Hadoop, and cloud servicesWeb and mobile dashboard share featuresData preparation and governance add-onChallenges– Unlike the other BI tools, Tableau can only do reporting. They do not have any ETL features. Therefore, they are not as dynamic when it comes to data transformation. 2. Microsoft Power BI :    Description– Part of Microsoft’s Power Platform, Power BI gives everyone in an organization the ability to design applications and manage data without having a master’s degree in IT. Furthermore, Microsoft Power BI Services presents information in a specific format.Benefit– Because Microsoft owns Power BI, it is a core part of the Microsoft product ecosystem.For example, we helped an Australian family-focused NGO set up a Power App where remote team members could enter valuable data about program attendees. We connected the Power App to Power BI, so they could analyze each program’s success in one place.Organizations value the powerful data visualizations that help them improve their decision-making. Other benefits and features include:Better, flexible insightsReduced Cost (Available in E5 plan or as a standalone tool)Built-in AI capabilitiesExcel, Teams, SharePoint, and other SaaS integrationsPrebuilt and custom data connectorsEnterprise level security and data loss prevention capabilitiesNo or little technical experience neededAutomate data prep and reporting processesiOS, Android, and Windows mobile appsCertifications (new feature)Challenges- While anyone can use Power BI, there is still a learning curve. Often, it helps to have a Power BI expert. Additionally, the basic standalone pricing starts at $9.99/mos. However, some of the advanced premium versions are too expensive for many SMBs.Also, complex business use cases might not be able to use this program due to the table relationships, rigid formulas, and interrelated Microsoft 365 tools.Conclusion:  All the data visualization tools serves the same purpose but Microsoft Power BI comes with some additional features than tableau even if you are looking for more advanced predictive analytics than you should go for Microsoft Power BI. IF your still not sure Get in touch with us for Free Consultation 1 Hour Demo

Data Visualization : Data visualization is the graphical representation of information and data. By using visual elements like charts, graphs, and maps, data visualization tools provide an accessible way to see and understand trends, outliers, and patterns in data.
