Getting Started with ADX and Power BI
Using ADX and Power BI together is easy and requires no programming skills. To get started, you’ll need an Azure subscription, a Power BI Pro account, and an ADX cluster.
Step 1: Create an Azure Subscription
Creating an Azure subscription is the first step. You can do this by signing up for a free trial or creating a pay-as-you-go subscription. Once you have an Azure subscription, you can create an ADX cluster.
Step 2: Create an ADX Cluster
Creating an ADX cluster is simple. You can do this by using the Azure portal, Azure CLI, or PowerShell. Once you have an ADX cluster, you’ll be ready to start exploring and analyzing your data.
Step 3: Connect Power BI to ADX
Once you have an ADX cluster, you can connect Power BI to it. To do this, you’ll need to create a data source connection in Power BI. You’ll also need to create an ADX database and table in the ADX cluster. Once these are created, you can start exploring and analyzing your data with Power BI.
Step 4: Create Visualizations and Reports
Once you have connected Power BI to ADX, you can start creating visualizations and reports. You can use Power BI’s drag-and-drop interface to quickly create visuals and dashboards. You can also use Power BI’s self-service BI capabilities to gain insights into customer behavior with predictive analytics.
Combining ADX and Power BI is a powerful way for organizations to quickly and easily explore, analyze, and visualize large datasets. With the combination, users can gain insights into customer behavior with predictive analytics and create interactive dashboards with self-service BI capabilities. With no programming skills required, it’s easy to get started with ADX and Power BI.
