We are living in digital world

In these days where everything has been recorded digitally, you may have a lot of digital data without even you realize it.

How can I make a use of my data you may ask?

It is hard to understand data if you are just looking at the raw data as it is collected. The data need to be refined, filtered and organized in such a way where it can help you strategize your business decision.

There are a lot of other data that is just sitting idle which can be used.

Customer info is one of the  simple data that most of business will have but rarely used for analyzing and improving their business. You can use the info to get to know who’s your audience/customers utilize the most. From there you can start figuring out what can be improved/changed if the graph does not show good performance or enable you to learn what has been done for the better improvement. You can do a lot of useful analysis by having this visibility created by the graph. Not all raw data can be easily used by Power BI directly. If the raw data is in a manner that is not organized, there are tools that you can help you to organize it automatically.
