Power BI is a collection of software services, apps, and connectors that work together to turn your unrelated sources of data into coherent, visually immersive, and interactive insights. Your data may be an Excel spreadsheet or a collection of cloud-based and on-premises hybrid data warehouses. Power BI lets you easily connect to your data sources, visualize and discover what’s important, and share those visualizations with anyone you want.
Lyftrondata acts as a query accelerator and gives a speed boost to the Power BI dashboard using in-memory analytics and the powerful Apache Spark Big Data engine. It transparently rewrites queries from Power BI to use a pre-aggregated copy. Lyftrondata uses Apache Spark for in-memory processing combined with materialized views that store pre-aggregated data. A SaaS version of Power BI has a limited set of supported connectors;, however, it can connect to a SQL Server. Lyftrondata emulates SQL Server and may be installed in the cloud or on-premise and will serve as a data layer for Power BI.
Any data source in Lyftrondata is transformed into an SQL query that can be directly attached with Direct Query in Power BI. Lyftrondata simulates Microsoft SQL Server and is recognized by Power BI as an SQL Server instance. Connection from Power BI to Lyftrondata is realized through the standard Microsoft SQL Server connector, Lyftrondata translates Transact SQL to over 100 data sources. As a result, there will be only one data source in all dashboards thereby simplifying development.
