Self Service Approach Leverages Office 365 and SQL for Line-of-Business Data Analysis
Chicago, IL, November 18, 2013 – SPR Consulting is excited to announce the first solution accelerator for Microsoft Power BI for Office 365. SPR Consulting leveraged their deep functional and technical expertise in ERP and CRM to create reusable templates to quickly and easily deploy solutions for Spend Analytics and Daily Sales. These new solutions leverage the SQL Server Tabular model and Power BI for Office 365 features to provide self-service analytics with the familiarity of Microsoft Office and the power of the cloud for on-premises line-of-business data.
“Until now our clients have had limited options deploying true business intelligence and analytics solutions when running Office 365. Power BI offers Office 365 customers a tremendous step forward” said Naresh Koka, Vice President at SPR Consulting. “The way users are consuming and collaborating on data is changing and it’s setting new expectations. Not only do our accelerators allow organizations to extend their existing on-premises data warehouses and operational systems to the cloud, but they also deliver HTML5 options that enable delivery of self-service analytics to any device anywhere.”
Over the last 24 months Microsoft has continued to push the envelope for business intelligence and analytics starting with the SQL Server 2012 release, Power View, Power Query and Power Map. Adding to this trend is the recent release of the Power BI preview.
SPR Consulting has a strong history with the Microsoft reporting and analytics solution options and is committed to expanding current templates and other core business functions to further support customer needs in Spend Analytics and Daily Sales reporting.
