Introducing Microsoft Power BI Embed for Confluence

We are happy to announce that we have just launched Microsoft PowerBI Embed for Confluence, an integration that makes it much easier to share reports and data with your entire company.

When you embed Power BI in Confluence Cloud, you bridge the gap between data and decision making.

About PowerBI

Power BI is a leading Business Intelligence tool by Microsoft providing interactive data visualizations that are easy for users to create. The main competitors of Power BI are Tableau, Qlik Sense, Google Data Studio or Looker.

Why use PowerBI

Stunning data visualizations

Advantages of integrating Power BI into Confluence

Real time reporting with always current data

You have dozen of static reports in Confluence. Unfortunately, they are born out of date. The nature of Power BI is to show always current information so you can monitor trends as they unfold.

Tell a persuasive, memorable story

Visual information is easier to remember. And your readers are more likely to believe the story you’re telling if you’re backing it up with real data.

Let’s make the mental experiment. Which of the following situations would you remember better at a meeting?

Scenario 1:

The VP of Engineering uncorks a bottle of champaign as he applauds: we have more business and are completing more work than ever at the company. And the increase this year has been magnificent! That’s what all the managers keep saying!

Scenario 2:

The VP of Engineering uncorks a bottle of champaign and makes the same announcement as he shows the following calendar in the screen:

How to integrate Power BI with Confluence

To share Microsoft Power BI for Confluence, you simply need to:

  • Follow the instructions in the Getting Started page. They vary depending on whether you want to share a form or a report.
  • Paste it into your Confluence page. But you can also use the /powerbi command or find the app in the macro menu, if that’s easy for you.
  • Hit publish, and enjoy!

Would you like to do more?

Integration with other sources of data? Interactive reports and data filtering, directly from Confluence? These are just random ideas, but we’d like to know what you think.

If you would like to do more with PowerBI directly from Confluence, let us know your thoughts! We’re actively collecting customer feedback to develop this integration further and make Confluence much more than a knowledge management platform.
