Microsoft Power BI improves efficiency and safety

Microsoft Power BI improves efficiency and safety As a tool that aggregates, analyses and visualises data, Power BI has been implemented with the assistance of the Wesfarmers Chemicals, Energy and Fertilisers (WesCEF) IT team who helped configure and troubleshoot the models as part of a collaborative approach at WesCEF.
