Display Power BI dashboards with MagicINFO

22 May 2019

Knowledge is power! There are several software packages on the market that
provide insight in your business data. These packages show the data in a smart
and fancy way which allows you to make fundamental decisions. An example of
software which is used by a market leader in business intelligence is Power BI by
Microsoft. This software allows you to create easy-understandable and very clear
dashboards. These dashboards allow you to take a next step by taking a look at
the created data, such as graphs and tables.
Data from several sources are getting merged and visualized via the desktop or
mobile app. But did you know that the dashboards are really coming alive when
they are located on noticeable displays? Make your dashboards a daily topic with
your colleagues to show the information real time on the Smart Signage displays
from Samsung in combination with MagicINFO.
Business data makes an impression
The results of a marketing campaign representing on the marketing department,
the sales figures on the sales department or the order status on the production
department. You name it and Power BI can create a dashboard for you. You want
your dashboard to be a part of a presentation with several business messages?
Use MagicINFO Web Author to add your dashboard as a web-element within your
own created template. You can even create a slideshow with the most relevant
dashboards within your organization. If you wish to have a screen-filling webpage
with a specific dashboard, then choose to show it as a webpage. With this option
in MagicINFO it’s also possible to show multiple dashboards on one screen by
using ‘frames’. Imagine, a 65-inch display divided in four parts where each part shows its own
content. That doesn’t only make an impression, but your employees will be
perfectly informed.
Stable solution for critical business information
MagicINFO is a stable solution which allows data to be shown continuously.
Besides that the Samsung Smart Signage displays saves the content till new
content gets offered, there are several different possibilities to control if the right
content gets shown. By using Remote Management you can fully control the
display remotely. If a display gets switched off or doesn’t show the right content,
you can use Remote Management to turn it back on again and show the right
content. Besides that the system is monitoring when a display doesn’t work how
it should, it allows you to receive notifications. By doing so you have full control
over your displays and the shown content.
Smart systems create smart people
Not only it’s possible to use MagicINFO to show dashboards, but MagicINFO can
also generate data which is used by your business analytics tool. Allow Power BI
to show the results of the content; when it gets shown, what gets shown and for
how long and so on. So, what happens when you have two smart systems
merged? An even smarter system will be created, a system that makes your
smart people even smarter by providing them the right business data at the right
