Microsoft Power BI is a suite of business analytics tools to analyze data and share insights. Power BI is part of the Office 365 suite of tools.

Microsoft Power BI gives faculty and staff a vast array of analytical tools geared at providing data understanding through an agile tool for visualization. Users can use this tool for a wide array of uses spanning from data discovery and visualization to annual reporting and anything in between.

Note: Eligibility of Power BI Pro licensing is limited to users with current Exchange/Email licenses on Office 365 (i.g. not Healthcare users) due to Office 365 Groups dependency
