Power BI: Common Data Service for Analytics
The continued rise of data volumes in undeniable. IDC recently estimated global data creation will exceed 160 zettabytes by 2025, with more than 60 percent of this data being created by businesses. Yet tapping into and taking action from intelligence spanning all of the data – especially data locked in siloed business apps – can be challenging.
Traditionally architecting a solution to ingest, integrate and analyze all of the data from disparate services and apps would require access to a team of dedicated professionals with specialized skills. Organizations would also need the ability to navigate the necessary time to execute, risk of failure, and operating and maintenance costs.
Introducing CDS for Analytics
The CDS for Analytics capability will reduce the complexity of driving business analytics across data from business apps and other sources.
A preview of the CDS for Analytics capability in Power BI, as well as previews of the first set of Power BI Insights apps – Power BI for Sales Insights and Power BI for Services Insights – will be available during the second quarter of 2018.
