Content Catalyst is pleased to announce the release of the new Power BI Visualiser – an integration transforming data visualisation in the Publish Interactive platform

Specialist technology provider Content Catalyst has today announced the launch of its new Power BI Visualiser feature.

Transforming the delivery of data exhibits within the company’s flagship content delivery platform, Publish Interactive, the Power BI Visualiser is a deep integration with Microsoft’s leading data visualisation tool, Power BI.

The integration enables users of the Publish Interactive platform to embed Power BI-powered data exhibits directly into textual reports as well as publish standalone data dashboards. The Power BI Visualiser also overcomes the logistical and cost-prohibitive challenges associated with applying user-specific licenses to Power BI-authored content.

The new development from the Cambridge-based firm is the latest in a long line of other integrations with other leading software tools, including SSO providers Okta and Microsoft Azure AD and video hosting service, Vimeo.

Edwin Bailey, Content Catalyst’s Chief Operating Officer, commented on the launch of the Power BI Visualiser: “Working predominantly with publishers of market analysis, our team noticed the growing appetite among information consumers for interactive, customisable data exhibits, able to accurately reflect current volatile market conditions. We are delighted with the release of this development that will ensure the Publish Interactive platform stays ahead of market analysis content delivery trends.”

Analyst firms traditionally delivered data as flat graphs, charts or as Excel spreadsheets, but increasingly large, complex datasets have led to increased demand for new ways of presenting and rationalising this data. Data visualisation tools, such as Microsoft Power BI, filled this gap.

Additional benefits of the integration include a seamless authentication experience between the Power BI and Publish Interactive worlds meaning no extra log-in steps are required to access Power BI content.
