Administrators able to gain analytical insights into usage to support targeted communication
Microsoft has released a public preview of a new Office 365 adoption content pack in PowerBI.
Usage reports in the Office 365 admin centre have been providing users with insights into how the services within Office 365 are used since March 2016.
Now, Office 365 adoption content pack in Power BI will combine the intelligence of these usage reports with the interactive analysis of Power BI.
The new content pack provides insight into how users communicate and collaborate within an organisation, which enables IT admins to deliver targeted user communication.
Administrators can visualise and analyse usage data within Office 365, and create customised reports. This helps develop a better understanding of how certain departments within their organisation use Office 365.
A dashboard within the content pack provides specific usage insights across four key areas – adoption, communication, collaboration and activation. This provides information regarding how various services within Office 365 – including Skype for Business, Exchange, Yammer, OneDrive for Business, and SharePoint – and being used.
Administrators can also see who has adopted and activated products such as Office 365 ProPlus, Project Pro and Visio Pro, and the type of device these products have been activated on.
Filters around department, organisation and location are all included, helping administrators quickly identify and source the information they require. The content pack can also be easily customised to meet specific needs or requirements within an organisation.
The content pack is available free of charge to customers, who only need the free Power BI service to connect.
