Introducing MongoDB Atlas Connector for Power BI, the certified solution that facilitates real-time insights on your Atlas data directly in the Power BI interfaces that analysts know and love!
Supporting Microsoft’s Intelligent Data Platform, this integration bridges the gap between Developers and Analytics teams, allowing analysts who rely on Power BI for insights to natively transform, analyze, and share dashboards that incorporate live MongoDB Atlas data.
Available in June, the Atlas Power BI Connector empowers companies to harness the full power of their data like never before. Let’s take a deeper look into how the Atlas Power BI Connector can unlock comprehensive, real-time insights on live application data that will help take your business to the next level.
Effortlessly model document data with Power Query
The Atlas Power BI Connector makes it easy to model document data with native Power BI features and data modeling capabilities. With its SQL-92 compatible dialect, mongosql, you can tailor your data to fit any requirements by transforming heavily nested document data to fit your exact needs, all from your Power Query dashboard.
Gain real-time insights on live application data
By using the Power BI Connector to connect directly to MongoDB Atlas, you can build up-to-date dashboards in Power BI Desktop and scale insights to your organization through Power BI Service with ease. With no delays caused by data duplication, you can stay ahead of the curve by unlocking real-time insights on Atlas data that are relevant to your business.
Empower cross-source data analysis
The Power BI Connector's integration with MongoDB Atlas enables you to seamlessly model, analyze, and share insightful dashboards that are built from multiple data sources.
