Power BI Health Check: 2 Hour Assessment

Smartbridge, LLC

Advice for a Troubled Power BI Deployment or Scaling to Meet Demand

In many cases, Power BI is being deployed quickly in hybrid environments along with other business intelligence and analytics tools also in use. Power BI’s data preparation and modeling capabilities are also shifting these activities in the data and analytics value chain closer to the business.

The quick deployment and business enablement can be a good thing, and we have seen Power BI bring a big jolt of progress, adoption, and value to analytics programs. However, such speed can also bring some challenges and growing pains.

Smartbridge has developed an entry-level step towards a target state architecture - a 2 hour free health check call. On this call, a Smartbridge Power BI expert will provide high-level recommendations on how to handle the growing pains.

What’s Covered

In this brief assessment, we may provide cursory guidance as it relates to:

  • Delivery approach
  • Current state of governance
  • Workspace design
  • Apps approach
  • Themes and templates
  • Development standards
  • Current product portfolio - licenses, capacity
  • Release management
  • Data preparation
  • Not all of these topics may be covered, and we encourage the call to be focused on where the help is needed most. We will provide recommendations on the call. If you are looking for a fuller assessment or roadmap towards your target state, that can be discussed on the call. More options are available for robust modernization assessments.

    Who is this for?

  • C-level, Executive Management, Business and IT decision makers
  • Companies that will benefit from this session will usually have 500+ employees and already have some users of Free, Pro or Premium Power BI licenses
  • How the Health Check is Conducted

    Assessment is done via phone or Microsoft Teams. Alternatively, in-person meetings can be arranged for the Houston, Texas area.

    We may require some additional details about your organization prior to scheduling the call.
