We understand that streaming data isn’t typically considered “Data Science” by itself. However, it’s are often associated and setting up this background now opens up some cool applications in later posts. For this post, we’ll cover how to sink streaming data to Power BI using Stream Analytics.
The previous posts in this series used Power BI Desktop for all of the showcases. This post will be slightly different in that we will leverage the Power BI Service instead. The Power BI Service is a collaborative web interface that has most of the same reporting capabilities as Power BI Desktop, but lacks the ability to model data at the time of writing. However, we have heard whispers that data modeling capabilities may be coming to the service at some point. The Power BI Service is also the standard method for sharing datasets, reports and dashboards across organizations. For more information on the Power BI Service, read this.
