Tips for PowerBI

Microsoft (MS) Power BI is a combination of data analytics services, applications, and connectors. Together, those features provide users a platform to unify and visualize their data simply and effectively, helping users to gain a deeper data insight. 

Power BI is a self-service platform where users create reports and dashboards for their enterprise business intelligence. Let’s explore some tips that can help your Power BI solutions to run faster and more efficiently (Myers, 2021). 

Apply the most restrictive filters 

Fewer data will help the loading speed of the visual. When applying filters, ask yourselves: Do the audiences need to see all of the data? Are there any ways to narrow down the number of data shown with minimal impact on audiences’ experience? 

Control the number of visuals on report pages 

You should limit the number of visuals on a report page to a necessary amount. 

Ensure custom visual high performance 

Keep in mind that visuals can affect the entire report. You should evaluate custom visuals probably. 

Understand performance implications of dashboards 

If you retrieve the data from a cache, the dashboard will perform better and more consistently than relying on the data source.
