Why Power ON for Planning in Power BI
Because Leveraging Microsoft Power BI for Plans and Forecasts Should be Easier
Our core belief is that Business Intelligence (BI) is a “Two Way Street”, which essentially enables companies to “provide and collect information” from end-users. We created Power Planner to allow Power BI users to enhance their insight into data beyond a static dashboard with drill down. With Power ON you can add comments, rich meta data, make predictions or change assumptions. With Power ON, you can do true, real-time planning with Power BI.
The Power ON platform and product suite enables Planning, Forecasting and Projections with integrated visualizations and dashboards of Power BI. Data can be stored where your users want it; on-premises or in the Cloud across SQL Server, Snowflake, Windows Azure, Hadoop, and more. The choice is yours. With powerful features like Goal Seek and our intuitive modeling capabilities, and the ability to copy Actuals to Forecasts, companies can significantly shorten the time it takes to produce an updated plan, a rolling forecast, or updated visual dashboard or report.
