Athena goes a step further to suggest additional insights to explore related insights, recommend next steps and automate time-consuming actions.
  2. Data visualization: Power BI offers a wide range of visualization options, from bar charts to pie charts and more. In addition to these same visualization options, ConverSight provides highly interactive and customizable visualizations, with features like in-depth data exploration and real-time data updates.
  3. Data integration: Power BI integrates with a wide range of data sources, including Excel spreadsheets, cloud services, and on-premise databases. In addition to these same types of integrations, ConverSight is cloud neutral, currently supports over 120 integrations and is able to support any cloud database via API integration.
