Mobile Power BI Users Can Now Dig Deeper Into Their Data


Power BI mobile users can now take a peek behind the business intelligence (BI) software’s tiles. The software has long allowed users to explore business analytics data on their mobile devices using the software’s tiled dashboard interface. Now, with a new update for the iPhone and Windows 10 versions of the Power BI app, they can dig deeper. “While dashboard tiles give you a quick overview of vital information, the reports behind the tiles provide a more in-depth view of your data,” wrote Romi Koifman, a Microsoft Power BI program manager, explaining the difference between Power BI tiles and reports in a blog post . “It’s a multi-perspective view, with one or more visualizations that represent different insights.” The updated Power BI apps now expose the data contained in those reports, opening up an even broader set of visualizations and filtering options. “To see the report, open the tile in focus mode and select ‘Open report,'” instructed Koifman. “The report will open in landscape orientation.”Android users will have to wait a bit until the report-viewing feature becomes available. Microsoft is working on porting the functionality, and it will appear on the Power BI Android app soon, said Koifman.Meanwhile, Power BI’s reach across the customer relationship management (CRM) software ecosystem continues to grow. Last week, Microsoft announced the availability of content for Alpine Metrics’ predictive sales analytics platform. “Alpine Metrics, utilizing Cortana Analytics, predicts sales outcomes with 95%+ accuracy,” said Theresa Palmer, a Microsoft Power BI program manager, in a Feb. 19 announcement.;
