Building Applications with Power BI

by Matthew Calderwood

Learn how to use the advanced features of the Power BI Embedding API and take your BI solutions to the next level. Embed, enhance, and interact with Reports, Dashboards, and Tiles.

What you'll learn

Learning the process of using Microsoft’s Power BI platform with Power BI Embedded is a great skill for software engineers and business intelligence professionals. In this course, Building Applications with Power BI, you will discover what the platform has to offer and get the most out of it. First, you will learn to build web applications that can harness the power of Power BI Dashboards, Reports, Tiles, and more; and seamlessly integrate them with your existing application content. Next, you will explore how to go beyond the simple embedding and rendering of reports, so that you can perform tasks such as dynamically controlling filters, slicers, and bookmarks. Finally, you will unlock exciting possibilities to not only extend the functionality within your Power BI content, but to also react to changes to report data within your own applications, blurring the lines between those applications and the Power BI platform. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of the embedded process to keep your content secure and compatible with Row-Level-Security enabled data models, and to even query your Power BI data models directly; allowing you to create customized user interfaces that use the same data as your reports and dashboards.
