Hi there,

Is it possible to connect Power BI to C4C? Has anyone achieved this and if so, how? I like the self-service capabilities of Power BI and have created some dashboard using excel as a data source (which came from using the C4C Excel add-in) but i would like to be able to connect directly to C4C via Power BI

Thanks in advance

No I did not unfortunately. Hoping SAP has a roadmap of some sort to include Power BI as a data visualization tool but my gut feel is they will stick to Lumira..

We can use the OData services to pull the C4C data to Power BI for data analysis, but this can be only be done with users having some technical knowledge about the OData services in the system and all. If we have some addon like excel add-in for power BI which lists all the available OData services with some WYSIWYG query builder for restricting the data before download, Then it can be used by non technical users also and it will be great.

Not sure If I have to open a new Idea again.

Just I was checking the C4C 1808 release notes and found this, the new OData query builder which is going to be released in 1808 will help the C4C business users to formulate the OData query to be feed in PowerBI as OData feed source.

It will help us overcome the issues in formulating the OData query for report data I guess, have to test this feature after upgrade.

Great find! Then i assume the Odata feed will be available as a data source to Power BI like this? Do i understand that correctly? (expose the report as odata, use PBI to connect to odata source (i assume we will need to provide a c4c user/pwd), then use PBI to slice and dice the report fields)
