Our Power BI Consultancy Services

Our Power BI Consulting Service offerings tend to fall into three main categories

End-to-end projects

You can relax and let us handle your Power BI project from start to finish. Our team of Power BI professionals will work closely with you and your team to make sure everything goes smoothly.

Popular projects like this include migration to Power BI from Excel based reports, or migration from Tableau to Power BI

Or our Health Check service where we take a deep dive through your reporting set up and review the People, Processes and Technology

We can offer the option of a time-based service model. Or if the requirements can be detailed at the outset we can also offer fixed price projects


Embedded consultants

If you want to boost your IT team with a Microsoft Power BI expert, this model is perfect for you. You’ll work closely with one of our Power BI professionals, who will help you with everything from strategy to training your BI and finance staff.

This approach lends itself best to being offered as a block of time that can be called off and billed monthly.

This is also the ideal model if you have a broader range of requirements that the exact project details cannot reliably be determined up front. Knowing that you can trust us to guide your team to successful implementation

Our Power BI Consultancy Approach

Our Standard Power BI Consultancy Process.

We normally follow a five-stage consultancy process. Depending on the complexity of the project


Business Intelligence Consulting

Initial Meeting

We gain an outline understanding of your business processes, current data utilisation and begin to form a business intelligence strategy. We consider what your data collection and data analysis will be and allow for the ad hoc analysis needs that other consulting firms tend to miss out


Top Level Plan

We enhance this outline and map the data together to form a top-level plan, with important areas of priority planned in first. We further define your requirements to deliver a data strategy in line with your KPIs and objectives


Develop Solution

Following the strategy, we begin to develop the priority areas for your business. We work as close as possible with your team, bringing them on the journey with us and gearing up their knowledge in readiness for them to be able to fully support day to day operations.


Training and Handover

When we get to the point of handover, we focus more on making sure that any knowledge gaps in your teams are addressed and clear documentation is provided and hosted on your systems.


Ongoing Support

We provide a range of on-going support options to ensure longer term success.
