Power BI Premium for Media & Communications: 1-Hr Briefing

PBI Lab Inc

An overview of how Power BI Premium can help your organization address the challenges of large enterprise deployments and workloads without needing to license each user individually 

We will provide you with a free, 1-hour briefing on how you can derive tremendous value from Power BI Premium.

Today we say the world has come closer, so has the data! You can get data of any customer based in any country. Imagine the size of the customers, segments, sub segments and cross functional connections of these segments, based on their choices for products, services, geography, features, prices etc. The social media platforms easily avail us the data, but for any media and communications solution provider, it becomes tedious to manage that data. So, comes in handy, Power BI!

With Power BI for Digital Marketing, your data will drive conversations. Combining data from different sources will reveal insights that aren’t available in siloed data. Power BI can also be used to create dashboards for social media monitoring and analytics.

Most of the organizations creating/embedding media content need to delve on usage/analytics data in an effort to improvise end-user experience. To achieve this, developers need to record some of the key performance indicators (KPIs) related to their video/media consumption. Power BI can help you derive values from the most common and desirable KPIs:

  • Which is the most watched video?
  • How many people watched the video until completion?
  • How many times was the video paused and at which position?
  • Which is the most streamed format/bit rate?
  • Platform information and other demographic details.

In order for you to decide the right mix of services and tools that will help deliver these KPIs, a significant amount of time and energy is spent to either create each component from the ground up or build on top of proven platform services.

Power BI Premium supports larger data volumes (you can publish datasets up to 10GB) and supports greater performance (refresh data up to 48x per day). With Power BI Premium you can share your content with individuals outside of your organization to view all Power BI content including paginated and interactive reports.

There are several reasons why customers want, and even need, a Power BI Premium solution:

  1. Per user and per capacity licensing options so organizations can choose the best package for their needs and automatically add capacity when needed (per capacity only)

  3. The ability to scale beyond resource capacity with auto scale and pay-as-you-go pricing without experiencing drops in performance
