Power BI Audit

How is Power BI being used? Are subscriptions profitable?

Power BI Audit 

Many companies (increasingly) invest in BI projects and licenses for their users, but once the project is up and running … Are reports being consumed as expected? Is the project and the Power BI subscriptions profitable?

SolidQ has developed a solution to provide updated information on the use of reports and dashboards within your organization. Power BI provides metrics on individual reports and user activity, but fails to provide an overview of all platform usage and license usage.

Do you want to know if you can save costs in Power BI licensing? Do you want to obtain information on how, who, when and from where reports are being accessed? Do you want to know which reports are most consulted, in order to continue optimizing them? Power BI Audit can help you achieve this.
