Video Blog - Part 4 of the PI Data Extraction Series - PI Integrator for Business Analytics and Power BI

Blog Post created by JimGavigan Champion on May 9, 2019

Hello everyone!


I wanted to get this video out last week, but the week just got away from me. This is the final video on the data extraction methods from the PI System and why we use each one. In this one, I talk about some tips and tricks on the PI Integrator for Business Analytics and how it can be used with Power BI. To me, these types of interactive reports will be the ones we use in production meetings in the future. I talk about this in the last 3-4 minutes of the video.


So, what would you guys like to see next? I have some people I would like to interview for some podcast type videos like I did with Buck Bard, or I have some other topics I have thought about covering around some underutilized PI System tips and tricks (hyperlinking to PI Vision displays and passing in asset/time context from Excel as an example), Power BI and/or Tableau tricks on dealing with time-series data, etc. You tell me.


Here is the latest video on YouTube:
