Power BI Desktop puts visual analytics at your fingertips. With this powerful authoring tool, you can create interactive data visualizations and reports.
Microsoft Power BI Desktop is an advanced reporting tool that lets you produce visual representations based on complicated data. That way, a layperson can understand the data more easily than if it were simply raw table data. The visuals include an array of charts and graphs, gauges, maps, and cards. In addition, the tool lets you import extra customized visualizations.
You can access various chart elements with one click, such as colors, legend, axis data, filters, values, labels, reference lines, and many other things. The report can be customized in a variety of different ways. You’ll have the option to select the fields that go in the chart and the fields you want to ignore. You’ll be able to enhance your pages by adding shapes, text boxes, and images. Data sets are like database tables because they let you organize field relationships.
Connect, mash up and model, and visualize your data. Place visuals exactly where you want them, analyze and explore your data, and share content with your team by publishing to the Power BI web service.
Power BI Desktop is part of the Power BI product suite. Use Power BI Desktop to create and distribute BI content. To monitor key data and share dashboards and reports, use the Power BI web service. To view and interact with your data on any Windows 10 device, get the Microsoft Power BI app.
The app also makes it easy for you to clean and transform data with its built-in Query Editor. Microsoft understands that data preparation can take most of your time. That is why they have built data modeling tools within the Power BI Desktop. Using the self-service power query experience familiar to Excel users, Power BI Desktop lets you ingest, integrate, and enrich your data before you start creating reports and visuals.

-Connect securely to hundreds of data sources –in the cloud and on-premises
