DataGalaxy x Power BI: A powerful data relationship like never before

Together, DataGalaxy’s Data Knowledge Catalog and Power BI help easily import your existing data sets to receive intuitive insights with our powerful, all-in-one data management platform.


some context

Why use DataGalaxy with Power BI?

Like many database services, Power BI provides users with a lot of creative flexibility, but the tool itself can quickly become overwhelming for users performing specific business matters.

Often, the answers to users’ questions are somewhere in the data set, but it’s difficult understanding where to begin to look for them.

  • Which Power BI app is the right one to find financial data?
  • Is there any sensitive data in the dashboard I’m about to share with my customer?
  • Who will be impacted when switching our data lake source to our new ERP system?

Let’s face it – Information like this can’t be found easily in Power BI. Data catalogs and  metadata management tools give users the ability to dive deeper into their data than using Power BI alone.

a lightning fast online start

Begin in 10 seconds

There’s no need for a complex architecture deployment: DataGalaxy’s Data Knowledge Catalog is shipped with a Power BI online connector ready to implement your data. We’ll guide you to setting up or connecting your existing Power BI account so you’re good to go!
