Pyramid Analytics features are built into Microsoft Power BI Desktop

Business intelligence (BI) solutions specialist Pyramid Analytics has entered into a partnership with Microsoft to jointly develop new technologies and integrate their enterprise analytics products.

Pyramid Analytics offers a turnkey enterprise analytics solution that makes it easier to self-serve and share trusted BI content. As a result of this new collaboration, some of the company’s solution features will be included in Microsoft's Power BI Desktop product, which is due to launch tomorrow. Among those features will be an option to publish a Power BI Desktop file to the Pyramid Analytics Server.

“Organisations are getting hooked to self-served data discovery, but want to expand the benefits beyond departmental or individual usage,” said Omri Kohl, co-founder and CEO of Pyramid Analytics. “Our clients come to us to scale BI adoption and share analytics content across the enterprise. Our work with Microsoft will give Power BI Desktop users the ability to publish files to an on-premises or private cloud server for broad collaboration on BI content.”

The Pyramid Analytics Server allows organisations to expand and scale BI adoption via governed sharing of analytics content, reports, data models, business logic, and more across the enterprise. It is available to all user types in the organisation on any device.

“Pyramid Analytics brings technology that complements Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services and uses all of the features of the Microsoft BI stack,” said Amir Netz, technical fellow at Microsoft.
