Find Out How Integration of Power BI & SharePoint Makes Data Reports Easy For You
Until now, there was no direct way to harness the power of Power BI reports in SharePoint Online. That all changed earlier this month, though, when Microsoft shared the news
that it was bringing the powerful analytical tool to SharePoint. We’ll talk about it in this issue.
What is Power BI?
This suite of business analytics tools provide business owners with a 360-degree view of their operations. The reports it generates are updated in real time and are available on a host of devices. It’s heavy use of visual tools help you clearly understand the data you’re looking at so that you deliver your messages more clearly. In addition to its analytics capabilities, which are vast, it also includes connections to data silos like Excel, SQL and Dynamics.
How difficult is it to embed Power BI reports in SharePoint?
How about this: there’s no coding required! In fact, it can all be done in just 5 easy steps:
- Publish your Power BI report to your Power BI account
- Copy the URL to the report
- Add the Power BI (preview) web part to your SharePoint Online page
- Paste the report’s URL when prompted
- Save and publish your page
How secure are the reports?
Power BI reports often contain sensitive information on many aspects of a business. However, the good news is that not everyone will be able to see the report. In fact, only users with authorize access to the report can see it.
