Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board is a statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain, and managed as an independent organisation (independent of both commercial activity and of Government). The delivery of AHDB’s services to levy payers is focused on six sectors, covering about 72% of total agricultural output in the UK. The six sectors are Pork, Dairy, Beef & Lamb, Horticulture, Cereals & Oilseeds and Potatoes.
AHDB wanted to migrate its existing BI dashboards from Tableau to PowerBI and make best use of PowerBI so that market data and research findings are widely available in a format that allows more farmers and growers to get value from them. We were engaged in this project through G-Cloud procurement to undertake a feasibility study of Microsoft Power BI and ascertain if this software can meet AHDB’s reporting needs which at that time were met using Tableau. Subject to Microsoft PowerBI’s functionality and the results of the feasibility study, the Customer was to decide on full-scale migration to PowerBI.
