The client had wanted a business intelligence tool, so their IT department purchased 400 Pro Microsoft Power BI licenses. Dashboard development started growing fast and soon become “out of control” within the organization as departments outside of IT began creating them. Over time , 30+ dashboards were developed with hundreds of business consumers and data sources which included localized excel files.
