LiveTiles is pleased to announce full integration with Power BI, allowing customers for the first time to visualize their data and other business content on a single pane of glass.

LiveTiles CTO Peter Nguyen-Brown notes that “With our new Power BI Tile, you can now easily combine visualized data alongside SharePoint documents, Yammer, Skype, external media and content from other third party applications. This is the only solution in the world that allows you to simply drag and drop the tile onto the canvas without needing to write a single line of code.”


The Power BI Tile will change the way you manage your analytics. Power BI is already known for helping users visualize, monitor, and report their data through colorful charts and graphs. Visuals often reach users better than numbers would, “Effective visualization helps users analyze and reason about data and evidence. It makes complex data more accessible, understandable and usable.” With Power BI, a laptop, desktop or mobile device lets you access and transform your data—and then publish it on the cloud for your teams to see. Power BI is updated in real time. It also has built-in gateways so that “you can connect SQL Server databases, Analysis Services models, and many other data sources.” Whether it’s IT, operations, human resources, or another part of your business, Power BI provides the tools for more rapid analysis of data that’s coming in.

From a technical perspective, the new LiveTiles Power BI tile respects the security framework provided inherently through Power BI.

Power BI is blazing new trails in data management. Companies are using it to gather actionable insights across their business channels. LiveTiles, however, takes this to the next level by giving their customers the added advantage of being able to create meaningful dashboards that also can surface contextual documentation, reports, rich media and social feeds alongside highly visualized data sets.
