On July 19, 2018, Microsoft Corp. announced the financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, as compared to the corresponding period of last fiscal year.
The results are impressive, for example:
- Revenue was $30.1 billion and increased 17%
- Operating income was $10.4 billion and increased 35%
- Net income was $8.9 billion GAAP and $8.8 billion non-GAAP
But what caught my attention, was the fact the press release included only standard tables with additional downloadable Excel, PowerPoint, and Word documents.
So my immediate thought was, where's the Power BI presentation of these fabulous results???
So I tried to redesign the tables in an attempt to present the financial results in a clearest possible way, by leveraging the amazing Power BI capabilities, together with the advanced visualization capabilities of Zebra BI visuals for Power BI.
Alright, here we go:
What do you think? Please let me know in the comments!
Note: This is not an official presentation of Microsoft Corp. financial results. It's just a quick study of how financial data such as income statements can be visualized in a clear and understandable way in Power BI as an alternative to standard data tables.
