Latest Power BI Desktop Update Provides New Support for Multidimensional SSAS, SAP HANA, Azure Data Lake, and Marketo

The latest version of Power BI Desktop provides support for key new data sources.

The new data sources include:


  • Direct query support for Azure SQL, Azure SQL DW and SQL Server on premise
  • Direct query support for SSAS multidimensional models
  • Direct query support for SAP HANA
  • Integration with Azure Data Lake
  • Integration with Marketo

These are still in preview or beta and in most cases cannot be published yet to the Power BI service. However, given the pace of releases with Power BI expect these to be production ready very quickly.
