Power BI Governance Report

The Situation

Out-of-the-box Power BI usage reports are limited to specific workspaces – admins can’t view report usage across multiple workspaces or check for improper use of Premium features. Additionally, admins can’t analyse long-term trends as usage reports only show the last 30 days’ data. Without access to company-wide consumption details, admins can’t ensure teams are following org guidelines and best practices.

Our Solution

Our Power BI Governance report tracks your organisation’s Power BI adoption details and usage patterns for reports across all workspaces. Admins can easily identify clusters of reports that are refreshing at the same time, failing frequently, or refreshing slowly. A single point of access, our report helps you make quick decisions regarding your organisation’s Premium capacity workload.
