2 min readAug 11, 2016

PubNub is excited to announce that Microsoft Power BI users can now ingest their PubNub data streams into this powerful data visualization platform. Power BI presents real-time data in easy to understand dashboards, allowing users to make rapid decisions on time-sensitive data and to easily see emergent trends as they happen. Power BI is releasing a public preview of its real-time dashboard capabilities today, and will be launching officially in Fall 2016.

Microsoft Power BI Uses PubNub for Real-time Data Visualization

Whether it is used for monitoring factory processes or social media accounts, real-time data visualization is beginning to drive business productivity and efficiency. Power BI, coupled with PubNub, further amplifies the power of real-time data with an easy setup process and an array of powerful visualization tools.

With the introduction of PubNub into the Power BI platform, Microsoft users get sub-second data visualization latencies and can see real-time data light up on beautiful dashboards.

Best of all, developers don’t need to spin up any new servers to make it happen.

PubNub believes that real-time data visualization is essential to real-time apps of all kinds. Adding this powerful integration complements our open-source Project EON and D3.js tutorials and gives PubNub users a beautiful new way to visualize their data streams in real time.

To begin using PubNub with your Microsoft Power BI implementation, sign up for a free PubNub account, get your keys, and read this real-time visualization tutorial from the Microsoft Power BI team.

Developers who are interested in getting their hands on the real-time Power BI preview can go to www.powerbi.com today!
