Tiger's Power BI Metadata Extractor is a no-code, self-service based accelerator that helps organizations extract metadata from Power BI datasets across different workspaces easily.
TA's Power BI Metadata Extractor helps organizations to get the metadata of the Power BI datasets across all the Power BI workspaces. Dataset metadata covers all the information about the tables, columns, relationships, measures etc. Getting the metadata information from a Power BI tenant is not an easy task since the data is stored in the backend system which is not exposed to everyone by default. We need to go through multiple steps to extract the information and show it in a presentable way to get more insights for admins, developers etc. We are making the whole process easier by automating the steps and providing the results.
TA's Power BI Metadata Extractor is a no-code, self-service-based accelerator. Basically it is a Power BI file itself so it can be easily adopted by the organizations. We are offering three different capabilities using extracted metadata.
