My blog’s category “Dear Power BI” is all about charts and visualisations created using Microsoft Power BI. In this post I am using Power BI to visualise the German Bundesliga table after matchday 13 in the current season (2018/ 19) vs. last season (2017/18).
Depending on one’s background, “Business Intelligence (BI)” and “Analytics” are obvious or diffuse concepts. To become meaningful, these catch-all terms need to be boiled down to their essence. I would argue that BI and Analytics can be both just seen as means with the same end: Helping to answer questions and improve corporate decisions. Hence they make data actionable. But to do this, they need the right setting.
