A governance and strategy assessment

Power BI is a great tool that helps you turn data into actionable insights. However, without the proper strategy, training, governance and licensing it offers a real threat to organisations. Incorrect data, lack of data security and rising costs all lead to bad outcomes for users of Power BI without the right framework in place.

Power BI Quickstart

This is where we come in. Bridgeall is a Microsoft gold partner for data platform and data analytics. We have experience helping organisations do more with their data. Our Quickstart approach is broken into two main phases:

  1. A full strategy, governance and review of approach
  2. A health check of existing deployments

The review

Our review is a comprehensive approach to ensuring your Power BI deployment is fully optimised and meets your approach.

We start off with a discovery workshop to learn your requirements, goals, objectives and your current set up.

We then access your Power BI deployment and carry out an assessment. We review:

  • Any existing dashboards and reports
  • Power BI usage and what is being used the most
  • Power BI setup – data models, integrations
  • Power BI governance approach – roles, permissions, training, administration, licensing

Lastly, we  pull together your requirements and the Power BI assessment to help us create some guidelines and steps forward around your wider data strategy and governance. Power BI is not a standalone solution and ensuring you have good access to clean data with strong data practices can make your Power BI governance so much better.

What you get

As the main output of the review, we provide a full findings report. This findings report includes an assessment of the existing set up with a list of recommendations and risks within your current set up. We include advice and guidance around how best to improve your data strategy and governance.

We will provide a presentation and discussion around this report to ensure the maximum value from the exercise.

We include consultancy days as part of our standard practice to implement the recommendations, carry out training, review new deployments or whatever can best support your Power BI journey.
