BI tools, such as Microsoft Power BI, Tableau and others, can help companies run more effectively as they show present and historical data within their business context. Used knowingly, the correct data can help with anything from specification development to searching talents and contractors.
In practical terms, the process might look like this: The company has certain goals and issues which make it hard to reach the goals. To fix the issues and track performance against the goals, it should collect the necessary data, analyze it, and determine what to do to reach the goals. For business intelligence it is critical to have at hand as much relevant data as possible, as it will help to make more precious conclusions and, as a consequence, better decisions.
For example, many software development companies use Jira as a core tool, because besides its primary issue tracking function, it also helps to manage projects and ease communication with the team, customers and stakeholders. As such, it contains lots of data that might be turned into useful insights. That’s why businesses are looking for the ways to link Jira with their BI tool.
And the easiest way to do it is to use a special app developed for the purpose, like Power BI Connector for Jira
