Major Changes #2: PowerBI Embedded

UniPhi Software, 07 Aug 2019

We have been combining the visualisation capabilities of Power BI with the data capture capabilities of UniPhi for 18 months now. This is streamlined through the connection of the two applications via UniPhi's REST API. This means that there's no clumsy extraction, transformation and load process from source systems to Power BI to create or more importantly refresh the data.

This development has been the most exciting thing since we first began developing UniPhi 15 years ago. The outputs we've been able to create have led to better machine learning algorithms on project status, simpler and more intuitive interpretations of the portfolio data captured and infinite flexibility for our end users to create the reports they desire.

One of the challenges, however, with Power BI is the ability to share what you create. Users need Power BI Pro subscriptions and security is a challenge as models need to be created for each workspace. We have solved this problem in UniPhi 15 through the utilisation of Power BI embedded. This feature allows us to embed the UniPhi Power BI workspace into our own application and is now available, for free, in UniPhi 15.

This new capability, added to the ability to publish to other organisation's Power BI workspaces means that we now can clearly see the death of the PDF status report, and long may it be buried, raised again, cremated and then buried as it is a very poor way to deliver very expensive consulting information. An expanded blog post on this pending death will be coming soon to our distribution channel near you.

Viewing your Power BI workspace is easy to access by:

 1. Clicking on the hamburger

2. Go into Reporting > Power BI Dashboards

3. View and navigate dashboards through the sub-navigation bar
