Comparative Analysis Dashboard in Power BI


Comparative Analysis is very important for each business. Using these analysis they can see the insights how they are performing over a period of time. And, which product, service for employee is doing good or bad. Our recent project, showcased in a concise video on YouTube, delves into constructing a Comparative Analysis Dashboard in Microsoft Power BI. This dashboard doesn’t just display data, but it also tells a story. We are comparing Current Year Sales with Previous Year sales and highlighting Year-over-Year (YoY) sales growth percentage. Additionally, it provides a comprehensive view of Budgeted Sales data alongside Budget Variance%, offering a clear picture of performance versus expectations.

On the top card, we have displayed the cards for CY Sales, Budget Sales, Budget Variance, PY Sales and YOY Sales Growth. From the top write corner, you can select the year using slicer.

In the middle of the page, we are showing the Current Year Sales by category in a doughnut chart. Sales Growth% and Sales amount by Product on a scatter chart. The Monthly trend of the CY Sale, PY Sales and Budget Sales.

At the bottom of the dashboard, we are showing Sales Trend with the Sales Forecast. And, a Table with conditional formatting with CY Sales, Budget Sales, Budget Variance, PY Sales and YOY Sales Growth by Product and Category.
