Session 1: Kids Insights - PBI Case Study

Kids Insights survey just over 400 children every week (20,000 a year) and collect data on everything from their favourite characters and books to pocket money and latest YouTubers they watch. Our subscribers access this data (in almost real-time) via our data portal, which we have recently built using Power BI embedded. Our clients (which include the likes of Penguin Random House) can then slice and dice and the data according to their needs. The response since we launched the beta version a couple of weeks ago has been amazing and we’re already seriously looking at launching in the US.

Jonathan & Matt Bromilow from Kids Insights will discuss how they built the portal using Power BI Embedded and how important it has been in the companies recently growth -
