Transform complex data into one version of the truth

Combine data from multiple sources into a single, trusted BI semantic model that is easy to understand and use. Enable self-service and data discovery for business users by simplifying the view of data and its underlying structure.

Match performance to the speed of business

Reduce time to insights on large and complex datasets. Fast response times mean your BI solution can meet the needs of your business users and keep pace with your business. Plus, connect to real-time operational data using DirectQuery and keep your finger on the pulse of your business.

Provide secured access, whenever and wherever you need it

Ensure that only authorised users can access your data models, no matter where they are, with role-based security and Azure Active Directory support. And with 99.9% availability*, your users can access critical information when they need it.

Accelerate time to delivery

Release your BI solutions in a predictable and secured manner. With robust application life cycle management capabilities, you can govern, deploy, test and deliver your BI solution quickly and with confidence.

Develop in a familiar environment

Focus on solving business problems, not learning new skills, when you use the familiar, rich and integrated development environment of Visual Studio. Easily deploy your existing SQL Server 2016 tabular models to the cloud.
