SIMS and Power BI Data Analysis

What is Power BI?

Microsoft Power BI is a powerful data analytic tool which allows schools to view their student data metrics in a concise and easy to use Report. It presents complex data in meaningful and relevant formats which can be interrogated to identify patterns and trends.

Our solution utilises the Power BI cloud service which provides the benefit of viewing your data securely anywhere with a web connection.

We have created a Power BI Report Template which pulls existing data from your SIMS database. There is no duplication of data entry and all data conversion is done automatically by Power BI.

The template will provide you with a report to analyse and interpret your attendance and exclusion data, providing clarity to complex and difficult decision making in these areas.
