No more static dashboard screenshots, no more poorly performing connectors from third-party applications, no more back and forth between tools to find additional information. Thanks to this development, Microsoft allows you to integrate real data visualisations into your presentations !

Why will this revolutionise the daily life of users?
You will have in your presentations :
- Real-time data
- dynamic views allowing you to make Ad Hoc queries in PowerBi without leaving your presentation,
- you will be able to enrich your BI storytelling
- your powerpoint presentation will be infinitely exploitable
By facilitating access to dashboards via a tool as universal as Powerpoint, Microsoft is taking a giant step forward in helping to evangelise data in companies. If this new development of PowerBi delivers on its promise, the data visualization tool would gain a significant lead over its competitors.
