New “Publish to Pyramid Server” functionality enables powerful on-premise data discovery and sharing capabilities for organizations looking to become data-driven
Pyramid Analytics, a leading global provider of enterprise business intelligence (BI) software, has joined with Microsoft to leverage the personal productivity features of Power BI Desktop with its complete analytics platform, BI Office. The new “Publish to Pyramid Server” functionality enables users to publish their reports and visualizations to a centralized repository, integrate data from multiple environments into a single location, and overlay security and administrative governance—all in a web-based, on-premise or private cloud platform.
“With Pyramid Analytics’ BI Office, organizations can maximize their Microsoft BI investment, eliminate security concerns, improve manageability, and provide a richer analytics experience. This new collaborative functionality with Power BI Desktop now makes it possible for Power BI users to keep their content, reports, and data models on-premise or in private clouds, and safely publish and collaborate on content using the rich capabilities of BI Office,” said Avi Perez, Pyramid Analytics CTO. “The result is a win for businesses that want to better leverage their investment in Power BI to create an integrated analytics workflow that speeds their ability to compete and become data-driven organizations.”
“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, Microsoft. “Pyramid Analytics has a proven record of partnering with Microsoft to deliver analytics solutions to meet the needs of our joint customers.”
