Turn your Engage data into valuable insight with Microsoft Power BI
Engage is enabling the use of Microsoft’s Power BI (Business Intelligence) for its schools, taking Engage Analytics within its fully integrated school management information system to a significantly new level by giving the user the most powerful toolset with which to analyse their Engage data.
How can Power BI benefit you and your school?
Using Power BI, you are able to turn your Engage data into valuable information, knowledge and insight, from which sound decisions can be made.
