Use Business Intelligence to Manage a Rapidly Scaling Workforce

Every business has expansion as a central component of their goals, but with business intelligence forging the path of business expansion, the possibilities of experiencing scale as compared to mere growth increases dramatically. Particularly in today's economic model and framework, the ability to manage and direct a rapidly scaling workforce can make the difference between bumping along at a survival rate as compared to zipping forward to the head of the competition and then leaving them behind in the dust wondering what just whizzed past them.

How PBRS Can Simplify Your Business Intelligence

We increasingly live in a data-driven world. However, not everyone in the world of startups, which depend so heavily on making data-based decisions, has the technical background to automatically thrive in this environment. Companies driven by the expertise of artists, chefs, accountants, designers, and visionaries can easily lack the analytical expertise to move in that direction.

That lack of technical knowledge within a given startup, though, is not automatically cause for alarm. It just necessitates the use of intuitive data tools, designed to build analytics and insights without a PhD in data science on staff.

Tools like Power BI and ChristianSteven Power BI Report Scheduler are specifically designed to work without a dedicated data scientist. They help to put the right data into the right hands, at the right time. Through easy and intuitive set-up, intelligence-based reporting and automated delivery, PBRS simplifies business intelligence by removing the friction.

How to Get Started Using PBRS for Power BI

When implemented the right way, PBRS can be a powerful way to leverage and automate the insights you get from your various data sources. This guide will walk you through the process of getting started with PBRS.

Let's begin with a clarification: Getting started with PBRS is actually a two-fold process. First, you or a team member should download and implement Power BI and/or Service, ideally both. Then, the same team member can download the ChristianSteven Power BI Report Scheduler (PBRS).

The first step is possible without the second. They don't have to immediately follow each other; feel free to spend some time on Power BI to familiarize yourself with its opportunities. That leads us to a quick discussion of Power BI, in both its Desktop and Service environments.

Turning Disparate Data Sources Into a Positive With PBRS for Power BI

Getting to the heart of the driving factors behind your business success isn't always simple or straightforward. Even if you were there from the start and the original moment of insight that eventually turned into a business, there will still be nuances about your product, the market, and your customers that aren't perceptible through traditional modes of thinking.

Instead, insights come in from a wide range of often disparate data sources. They all mean something, but they can seem impossible to synthesize or turn into valuable insights.
That's why talented people who are able to look at data in different ways to gain unique insights are so invaluable. And it's also why investing into tools that gather and analyze the information streaming in from these data sources tends to result in excellent ROI.

It starts with understanding all the data flowing into and through your business. It also means understanding what sources naturally translate into actionable insights that can help you build strategies and plans for a variety of areas.

But pulling from a variety of sources is not a bad thing. Instead, with the right tools, it can actually improve the quality and quantity of insights you gain. In this guide, we'll explain how.
