One of the most requested pieces of functionality I’ve seen over the last couple of years with Power BI has been for the ability to connect into a range of cloud based applications across the web. You may watch the full video of this tutorial at the bottom of this blog.
Historically this has been very difficult and that is the core problem we’re trying to solve with the Data Nucleus web based app.

How Does Data Nucleus Actually Work?
What Data Nucleus does is it creates a cloud based data warehouse and then uses this to store and sync all of the cloud based data that you decide to connect into.
Within your own profile you have one comprehensive warehouse which contains all specified data and can easily grow as you look to add more connections

As Data Nucleus is being powered by Enterprise DNA, obviously we will have a Power BI focus, as we still believe with quite a lot of conviction that Power BI is the best analytical tool on the market and will continue to be for some time yet.
What’s The Future For Data Nucleus?
The problem we’re trying to solve with our new platform is immense. It’s one of the most difficult parts of creating high quality analysis for most businesses today. Actually getting the data and curating it in a seamless way has historically been very hard.
The near term future for Data Nucleus is primarily to create as many connections to key business critical applications as we can, so that you can bring all of your data together and create useful insights that are going to make a difference using Power BI.
Also once we see Data Nucleus gaining traction we will endeavor to create pre-built templates that our users can take advantage of. At the moment we are just providing the data connection and then you have the complete flexibility of using Power BI to shape and optimize your data and reports in any way you like. But we know that there is value in creating a prebuilt offering to speed up your insight generation and analysis of your data. Stay tuned.
