According to a recent press release, “Qubole, the data activation company, today announced the Qubole Data Platform now supports Power BI, the market-leading business analytics service from Microsoft. The new integration with Power BI, powered by Qubole’s Presto implementation, provides customers with the only offering on Azure that can federate Power BI queries across diverse big data sources—enabling users to interact with, analyze, and uncover new insights. Qubole is natively designed for Microsoft Azure, offering tight integration across storage, compute, security, and other key elements of the Azure cloud architecture. The integration with Power BI takes that to another level, introducing a suite of new interactive analytics and data visualization features for Qubole customers on Azure. Users can connect to hundreds of data sources, simplify data preparation, and drive ad-hoc analysis to deliver insights to teams throughout their organization.”
The release goes on, “Qubole Presto and Power BI enable businesses to run self-service federated queries from unstructured, semi-structured, and structured data sources for reports, visualizations, mashups, and powerful dashboards published in the Power BI Service. Qubole Presto is the only Presto distribution on the market that delivers advanced optimizations, caching, auditing, a query cost model, and workload-aware autoscaling, offering the best cloud-native performance and lowest operational costs. Moreover, by introducing Presto for querying and processing data, users are no longer constrained by a single big data source or by the latency of local processing of queries against vast amounts of big data, dramatically improving workload efficiency.”
