To make the most of the data generated by the Internet of Things (IoT), you need an excellent data-visualization solution that optimizes sharing and collaboration between teams, anywhere and any time. Today Power BI made new features available for preview, including new dashboards, new visualizations, out-of-the-box connectivity to popular software-as-a-service applications and a native iPad app. Also available today, live “hybrid” connectivity to on-premise SQL Server Analysis Services tabular models.
“With the new Power BI connector for SQL Server Analysis Services, customers can realize the benefits of a cloud-based BI solution without having to move their data to the cloud,” writes the Power BI team on their blog today. “Customers can now create a secure connection to an “on-premises” SQL Server Analysis Services server from Power BI in the cloud. When users view and explore dashboards and reports, Power BI will query the on-premise model using the user’s credentials.”
