Power BI Gateway Setup: 1-Day Implementation

Enlighten Designs Ltd

Deploy Microsoft's Power BI gateway to fully utilize the capability of Power BI in your organization.

Keep your dashboards and reports up to date with your on-premises data sources. With this offer, the team that delivers Microsoft's Data Journalism Program and develops award-winning Power BI Custom Visuals will set up and optimally configure a Microsoft Power BI gateway that empowers your reports and dashboards with freshly updated data.

Power BI is infinitely more powerful with the right infrastructure. An on-premises data gateway acts as a bridge, providing quick and secure data transfer between on-premises data and Power BI, Microsoft Flow, Logic Apps, and Power Apps services.

With on-premises gateways, you keep your data fresh by connecting to your on-premises data sources without needing to move the data. Query large datasets and benefit from your existing investments. Gateways provide the flexibility you need to meet individual needs, as well as the needs of your organization.
