Abstract or Summary

Business Intelligence is a discipline that focuses on managing data and information to make better decisions. In order to collate, analyse and disseminate the vast quantities of information, business intelligence has become the lifeblood of organisations. The use of software such as Microsoft Power BI has become the main tool in this field. Community Living is a non-profit organisation based in Hamilton which provides support for families and people with intellectual disabilities in Waikato region. As the organisation is growing, previous processes which don’t allow for visual report cannot meet the needs of senior managers anymore. In light of this, the purpose of this research was to investigate the feasibility of Microsoft Power BI to improve analysis, presentation and dissemination of property issues and repairs information. Two semi-structured interviews were carried out with the concerned general manager and the property issues and repairs manager. The project is still undergoing, but preliminary findings indicates that Power BI is compatible with the property issues and repairs database. The templates developed from the pilot study met their criteria and initial feedback were positive. Further modification is undergoing as the application grows.
