Data and analytics governance is a critical enabler of business success, yet many people are still spending the majority of their time finding and resolving errors.

The AnalyticsOps portfolio of products from Wiiisdom, including the new solution, Wiiisdom Ops for Power BI, helps to ensure data is accurate, up-to-date, and consistent for trusted analyses.

Wiiisdom Ops for Power BI automates dataset and report testing and streamlines analytics governance workflows, so organizations can easily validate datasets and trust that reports are accurate. The new offering allows users to:
Test and deploy content at scale: improve productivity and increase confidence with cloud-native, automated testing for all Power BI content across an organization;
