Foster a culture of data-backed decision making with access to timely data anywhere and anytime

Many organisations are on a transformational journey of becoming more data-centric. But to promote a culture of data-driven collaboration, you need technology to enable it. If the reporting process is slow and the data unreliable, achieving a culture of data-backed decisions will be challenging.

  • Power BI enables up/down and across views of data based on the user roles and the information they need to see.
  • Use Power BI’s interactive dashboards to drill down from top-level KPIs to detailed analysis of data. Answer questions as they arise in meetings.
  • Provide a single version of the truth for everyone, reducing conflicts about data.
  • Easily share reports and visualisations within collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams so everyone is on the same page.

Stay informed of important data changes with data alerts in Power BI

Keep an eye on the most important KPIs for your role with Power BI dashboards. With data fed from financial and operational systems and housed in the Solver cloud-based data warehouse, you always have access to the latest situation.

The beauty of Solver and Power BI working together is the combination of their capabilities. For example, alerts in Power BI notify you when a KPI breaches its threshold. Because all the data is stored in the data warehouse, you can analyse the Power BI dashboard and drill down to linked Solver Reports. This gives you the complete detail to review and identify the root cause.

How does Power BI connect to Solver?

Connecting Solver data to Power BI is quick and easy with Solver’s pre-built Power BI connector. The Microsoft-certified Solver API provides an easy and secure data extraction from the Solver Cloud data warehouse.

With a few simple clicks, a power user can select the modules in their Solver data model that they want to expose to the Power BI connector securely. The API provides both the URL and the Access Token required by Power BI.

Within the Power BI Get Data menu, you can then select the Solver connector from a list of Microsoft certified third-party connectors. Solver data can then be loaded into Power BI. Without Solver’s Power BI connector, the data model would need to be set up in Power BI from scratch; Solver’s connector for saves time and effort.
