analyzing-azure.pngPart of my job at 3Cloud is to manage our cloud infrastructure in Microsoft Azure. Azure provides me with a lot of data about how we spend money on various resources across a number of Azure subscriptions. The problem is, that trying to figure out where all the money goes can be tricky because of the number of subscriptions and different services and components.

Microsoft Power BI with the new Power BI Designer makes it easy to combine data from multiple files into an easy to analyze data model. When published to, you can share an interactive dashboard with as many people in your organization as necessary.

In today’s Demo Day video, I’ll show you how I combine monthly usage data that I receive from Azure into a single analysis application, build a dashboard, and then share it with my team.

In addition, you’ll see how you can:

  • Combine, clean and shape data with the Query designer for Power BI
  • Build interactive, drag-and-drop charts
  • Use custom calculations to enhance your data

Is your organization deploying Microsoft Power BI?
