Join Gini von Courter for an in-depth discussion in this video Connect to a SaaS solution, part of Power BI Pro Essential Training.
- [Voiceover] Power BI service…allows us to connect to a wide variety…of data sources.…Most of the are in the cloud.…For example, I can connect to SaaS services,…Software as a Service.…If I'm using QuickBooks online then I can…connect my QuickBooks instance with Power BI…so that I can query my QuickBooks information…and learn things about sales and about my customers…and about my accounts receivable and so on.…
If I'm using Salesforce then I can connect…my Salesforce data with Power BI…to be able to analyze my Salesforce data.…And if I'm using a different CRM,…for example, if I'm using Microsoft Dynamics CRM…either as a sales manager or as a service manager…I have those choices here as well.…Again, this list continues to grow.…I'll need to have appropriate information…to log into most of these services.…For example, if I wanted to connect…my GitHub data to Power BI and I click the Get button…I'm asked first to provide information about…the owner of the organization for the GitHub…repository and then the repository name.…
