Power BI and Engage
Engage is to enable the use of Microsoft’s Power BI (Business Intelligence) to its schools, taking Engage Analytics to a significantly new level, by giving the user the most powerful toolset with which to analyse their Engage data.

What does Power BI enable?
Using Power BI, you are able to turn your Engage data into information, knowledge and insight, from which sound decisions can be made.
Presentation can be in many formats, including Graphs, Charts, Maps, and Tables, with the ability to add filter upon filter with drill down capability.
When and what’s involved?
Engage is releasing a new Data Connector to link Power BI with Engage.
The basic Power BI tool for Desktop can be downloaded free of charge direct from Microsoft. To use Power BI with Engage, you need Engage’s new ‘Data Connector’.
More information on Power BI, its licensing and feature options, is here.
Using Power BI’s ability to examine hundreds of data sources, you can design your own reports.
Alternatively, if you want Engage to create a report, just raise a Case on the Support Centre and you will receive a quotation.
Engage’s Power BI Forum
Engage will be adding a Power BI Forum to the forums on the Engage Support Centre, where users can share their experiences and make their own reports available to other schools.
Any price concessions?
Yes. For schools which have already purchased Engage Analytics, the cost of the new Data Connector will be made available free of charge.
