In the previous “recipe” was the word on how to import data to PowerBI and I have listed a number of sources from which it can connect. In what follows we will focus on the description of the user interface, and then you will see at practical example how to make reports and add them to dashboards. We will not be focusing on details but I believe you will, after reading this article, be able to independently create PowerBI reports.
In a previous post I talked about the history and gave brief introductory remarks regarding PowerBI service and its “tastes” (PowerBI, PowerBI Desktop, PowerBI Mobile). In the text that follows you will see how to apply on PowerBI service and import data from a desired source. We will connect to data table, taken from ERP solution, and connect to the data you will later use to create the report. Concentrate, the magic begins!
PowerBI is the Microsoft Cloud service that allows you to download data from different sources, their storage and processing in order to generate vivid reports that an be seen on almost every platform imaginable. This is a tool that Microsoft has high hopes on and which is developing at an incredible rate. Every month there is a new version that fixes bugs and brings new functionalities.
