Feature details

The decomposition tree is a new visual that helps you understand the root cause contributing to a high or low KPI value. The decomposition tree lets you break down a metric by one or more dimensions to understand what impact individual factors have on a KPI.

The Power BI decomposition tree is an AI visualization, which means you have two choices. The first choice is that you can select the dimensions you want to use to break down the KPI. The second choice lets Power BI automatically find the most interesting splits and conduct the root cause analysis for you.

The decomposition tree is one of the top requested features on Power BI ideas with over 4,000 votes.
