The Code Runner Speech # 4 “Power BI: Let Your Data Start Speaking to You” was held in collaboration with Zemin Istanbul and PEAKUP, on the evening of February 18 in Birhan AYDIN. The ‘What Does Data Mean For You?’ presentation started with Aydın visualized the data in Microsoft’s Power BI program using the data sets on the IMM Open Data Platform.
Power BI, which is frequently mentioned in terms of business intelligence application, is a cloud application and business intelligence solution produced by Microsoft. Like other business intelligence tools, Power BI is produced for us to design interactive reports-dashboards with high visibility. Power BI mostly targets non-technical enterprise users. With Power BI, reports can be prepared using web and desktop clients. You can view your reports on the website and using native written mobile applications.
Talking about the processes of data creation, Aydın explained the concept of Business Intelligence:
- It is the name given to processes and methods that enable us to process raw data to make it more meaningful and useful
- Business Intelligence helps identify and develop new projects by processing large amounts of data
- Our working areas are generally the areas where the most amount of raw data can be processed
- We see that business intelligence practices are used in the finance sector, telecommunications, retail sector, energy, public sector, health and all other sectors
Aydın talked about the components of business intelligence through the concept of Business Intelligence. Emphasizing that this concept, which we have heard a lot during the popularization of data, has increased the power of companies to survive against risks and remain in a cycle.
Emphasizing the concept of reporting tools among components, Birhan AYDIN explained the importance of features such as making data models easily, accessing the source of more than one piece of data, and accessing businesses easily and quickly according to special information requirements.
Emphasizing sample reporting steps, data sources, data editing stages and graphic creation tools, Birhan AYDIN explained the questions that institutions should answer through the data to make calculations, and stated that last year’s data should be based on answering these questions.
When it comes to publishing the report; He emphasized the points that should be taken into consideration in the process of sharing with individuals, sharing with teams, viewing the same report on the basis of their powers, and accessing reports from the mobile side. Finally, he visualized the data in the Power BI program using the “examined animals” datasets available on the IMM Open data portal.
