Piece everything together with easy-to-use data visualisation

Our IT consultancy team here at totality services are certified Power BI experts. So we know how to implement it to serve your business needs.

The beauty of Power BI is that we can work behind the scenes to tie together all of the intricate and disparate data sources from across your business together. All into one easy-to-use and presented dashboard.

Or a series of dashboards if that’s what you need.

What’s included in the Power BI suite?

Microsoft Power BI is a collection of software, connectors, and APIs that allow you to pull all of this data together. Here is what’s included in the suite:

This is all part of the Power Platform which includes BI, Automate, Apps, and Virtual Agents.

Everything you need to know about Power BI licensing

Here is an overview of the more technical information, pricing, licensing, etc. Our team is always here to answer any questions you have but we figured this information may be helpful for you at this stage in case anyone internally has technical or pricing questions before we start working together.

There are two kinds of subscription licences: Standard and Premium.

The Standard Power BI subscription is fully self-service. And we can, of course, provide consultancy and help with implementation.

The subscription itself is billed monthly, priced for the number of users, and there is no subscription fee.

The Premium subscription provides advanced admin and deployment controls, ideal for enterprise, big data analytics, and on-premises reporting. There is an additional monthly cost for this.

You can actually mix and match these licences as you may not need Premium access across your entire organisation. If you have any questions about how this works, please let us know and we’ll talk you through the whole thing.

There are three options here: Free, Pro, and Premium Per User licences.

The type that a user needs is determined by your organisation’s subscription licence type, how they’ll interact with Power BI in their day-to-day, and if they need access to Premium features.

We know this sounds a bit complicated, so again, please feel free to ask us any questions at any stage throughout the process.
