Let the machines do the learning
Still in Beta, Google Data Studio is the new kid on the block when it comes to BI platforms. Google Data Studio is the least featured of the main BI platforms, but new features are being released weekly. Easy to use, easy to share, and easy to connect to Google Cloud data, Google Data Studio ticks most boxes for small-medium businesses.
One of our favourite visualisation libraries is D3. We use it for embedding visualisations within portals and business systems, often overlaying multiple data sources to provide insights without leaving the system they’re in. D3 can also be used for creating custom visualisations within Power BI, when the current ones just won’t do.
