PowerBI Rest API – is it Christmas time already?

Yesterday I caught a retweet from Jen Underwood (T | B) that got me really excited – it was about the release of a Rest API for PowerBI that allows you to consume datasets and show datasets in you own applications, webpages.

Create real-time dashboards from your appliation

Uncover real-time insights from devices, sensors and applications. Use the Power BI REST API or Azure Stream Analytics to push data directly from your application into a dashboard in Power BI.

Visualize data the way you want

We’re enabling developers to easily add custom visuals into Power BI for use in dashboard, reports and content packs. To help you get started, we’ve published the code for all of our visualizations to GitHub.

Integrate with Power BI

Create and publish content from your application into Power BI. Use Power BI to accelerate your solutions and focus on your core value.
