Best of Both

Avoiding the need to 'save to Excel'

Power BI is a great platform for sharing interactive Dashboards and visual reports. For more analytical use-cases, users will often export the data to Excel for analysis, which can be a tedious and cumbersome process. FluenceXL (formerly XLCubed) provides an extended model which connects Excel directly to Power BI data, avoiding the need to save into Excel, and adding a wealth of functionality over and above what’s available in PivotTables.

Build advanced reports faster

Business users quickly become productive as they can leverage existing skills while directly accessing the centralised data platform which Power BI provides, rather than creating their own data islands. Non-technical users can easily analyse the data as required, and build their own reports and visualisations benefitting from advanced ad-hoc queries, quick calculations and pixel-perfect report formatting.

Bringing your Power BI data into Excel

Connect directly to Power BI data models held in Power or Premium. Combine data with a wide range of sources including SAP HANA, Oracle Essbase and relational databases.

Work within a familiar design environment and leverage existing Excel skills to produce advanced and customised reports.

Excel report integration in Power BI

FluenceXL has several Power BI Custom Visuals which help enrich Power BI reports and dashboards in a number of areas. They can all be used as a standalone report within Power BI, or configured to respond interactively with other components in the same report.

Ad-hoc analytics

Embed an FluenceXL Grid within Power BI to provide users with slice and dice analytics, drill-down and intuitive calculations.

Small multiples / trellis charting

Allows users to build multiple charts within one designer for easy comparison, and to quickly drill from one chart into many.

Formal or financial reporting

FluenceXL gives uses the layout and formatting control they need in these areas, our custom visual helps them surface these within Power BI.

Business reporting that works for you

Achieve a degree of layout and formatting control for formal reporting, alongside slice and dice analytics and ad-hoc queries, which Power BI was never intended to deliver.
