By drawing upon your NetSuite data and by connecting Power BI, we help you seamlessly visualise both financial and non financial data.
When sustainable funding, trust and reputation are increasingly under the spotlight, the need to prove what you do and build trust alongside looking after the financials has never been more important.
We help you understand the difference you are making in a much clearer way, sitting alongside you throughout your impact journey and supporting you with the three interlinking areas of impact - strategy, data and reporting.
Alignment on purpose
Power BI is an analytics tool developed by Microsoft that allows users to visualize and share insights from their data. At Cloud Doing Good, we connect Power BI's visualisation capabilities seamlessly with our client's NetSuite data. This enables users to transform and shape their finance data, create interactive visualizations, and share reports and dashboards with others. Key features of Power BI that can be used for NetSuite data include:
Power BI can connect to a wide range of data sources, including databases, cloud services, Excel files, and more. It supports both on-premises and cloud-based data sources.
Once connected, you can use Power Query, a data transformation tool, to clean, reshape, and combine data from different sources.
Power BI provides a data modeling environment where you can create relationships between tables, define calculated columns and measures using DAX (Data Analysis Expressions) language, and create hierarchies.
Power BI offers a variety of customizable visualizations, such as charts, tables, maps, and more. Users can create interactive and dynamic reports by dragging and dropping visual elements onto the canvas.
Dashboards are collections of visualizations that provide a high-level overview of key metrics and insights. Users can pin visualizations from different reports onto a single dashboard.
Reports are more detailed and interactive documents that contain multiple pages of visualizations. Users can create, format, and customize reports to tell a data-driven story.
Power BI allows users to publish reports and dashboards to the Power BI service (Power BI Online), where they can be securely shared with others within or outside the organization. Collaborators can interact with the reports and dashboards without needing to install Power BI Desktop.
Power BI offers mobile apps for iOS and Android devices, allowing users to access and interact with reports and dashboards on the go.
Power BI reports can be set to refresh regularly to keep the data up to date. This is important for ensuring that insights are based on the latest information.
Power BI offers various security features, including role-based access control, row-level security, and integration with Azure Active Directory for user authentication.
