Build Dynamic Power BI Dashboards Using Live Data

The addition of custom connectors has dramatically broadened the connectivity potential for Power BI users. Coming off of the Microsoft Business Applications Summit, we are pleased to announce the release of CData Power BI Connectors.

Based on the same query engine that powers all of our standards-based drivers, the new connectors include the same robust feature-set that users expect from CData products, including powerful query folding and push-down, robust SQL to NoSQL interfaces, and dynamic meta-data discovery.
