Today we’re going to take a closer look at an example of a use case for the Power BI Connector for Jira

. This example is a big regional bank in Eastern Europe, but the tool can be useful for all other types of businesses, really.
In order to develop your in-house strategies and get an accurate representation of how well each employee is actually performing, you need to take advantage of some kind of business intelligence software. Tableau and Microsoft Power Bi are just two examples.
Without actually taking a deeper look into your data, you cannot tweak your strategies in a sensible way and end up relying on guesswork, which is in no way professional and can actually harm your business instead of improving it.
A lot of businesses use Jira for managing projects. And, in truth, if you don’t, you probably should. It is also a good source of valuable data about every single task given out, no matter how big or small, as well as how long it took to complete.
There is only one problem with Jira: that data is raw, and can be overwhelmingly hard to decipher, especially if you have hundreds of employees.
Business intelligence tools, on the other hand, help turn that raw data into reports that are easy to both read and digest. But those are two separate tools, how do you make them speak to each other?
You guessed it, with the help of the Power Bi connector for Jira
. So, the scheme looks something like this: data is collected by Jira, then transferred through the connector to Power Bi (or another business intelligence tool) to be then turned into actionable insights to be used for identifying areas within your workplace that require improvement.
