ChristianSteven Named Spring 2021 BI Software Top Performer

However, some awards do honestly and accurately reflect the perceptions and attitudes of the people who really matter—customers.
And because it is those few special awards to which we pay particular attention, when ChristianSteven was nominated and then elected as the Spring 2021 BI Software Top Performer Award.

Reports are documents containing data in text and table form. They may include visuals like simple charts and graphs, but they are mostly a representation of specific data sets. The data in a report is not live, so it cannot be manipulated. It has already been cleaned, sorted, and prepared for presentation.


Dashboards, on the other hand, are live. Visualization tools can be tailored and customized to display specific data and metrics. Data is updated in real-time, so visuals can change from minute to minute. Dashboards can be broad and multi-faceted for departments with many functions, or they can be more focused.


What is a Power BI Dashboard?

A Power BI Dashboard is a single page, or canvas, that uses visual tools to tell a story. Limited to one page, a well-designed dashboard will contain only the most important elements of the data story.

These are the features of an effective Power BI Dashboard:

Must-Have a Premium or Pro Version

Different organizations will have different requirements for a Power BI Dashboard to be useful. Premium and pro-versions of the software allow more customization and additional features that a basic program won't have. Upgrades should be seamless with the ability to tack on new features as they become available.

More Than a Popularity Contest

Everyone wants to be liked, particularly when awards and kudos can be gained, but this particular awards program does more than measure popularity. Of course, client engagement is key to the success of any enterprise, but in this situation, rankings are calculated based upon the most important aspects of any business operation, including these key factors:

  • Data Aggregated from Online Sources and Media Properties
  • Social Media and Market Presence
  • Vendor Momentum (based upon web traffic and search trends)
  • The volume of Customer Success Content

The Top Performer award is intended to identify vendors with a significant market presence coupled with substantial customer success content which clarifies and validates their enterprise vision. Because of these factors and its growing market presence, ChristianSteven Software consistently earns high ratings among its satisfied customer base and has rightfully earned its reputation for delivering superior results; consequently, the amount and quality of curated customer references for ChristianSteven Software continues to expand at an exponential rate.
