Does Power BI Integrate with Other Products?

Power BI Pro integrates with both Microsoft products, and third-party platforms, so users can pull data from wherever they need to.

Some popular Microsoft solutions you can connect Power BI to include Exchange, Office 365, Dynamics 365, SharePoint, Excel, Cortana, and Teams. Users can extend Power BI’s native connectivity to new data sources using Custom Connectors for Power BI, or Microsoft Flow.

Some of Power BI’s components can be used directly within Excel, bringing the analytical power of the app to your spreadsheets. Power Query, Power Pivot, and Power View’s availability with Excel mean users can merge and prepare data sources, create reports, and generate visualizations within the traditional Excel interface.

Power BI can also be connected to other services, such as Salesforce, GitHub, QuickBooks, ZenDesk, Marketo, Facebook, and Google Analytics, with more connections being added all the time.

 

 

Can Power BI be customized?

Power BI is highly customizable, with users able to personalize dashboards and interfaces. Custom reports are also easy to create. Visualize data your way, with our rich library of fully-customizable, open-source data visualizations. With the custom visuals SDK, you can create stunning visualizations, based on well-known JavaScript libraries such as D3, jQuery, and even R-language scripts. Test and debug on the fly, and package into redistributable custom visuals that can be used across all Power BI products. You can share custom visuals you’ve created within your organization, deliver them to your clients and customers, or share them with the world on AppSource.
