Geospatial tool offers business analytics preview

November 7th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

The ArcGIS Maps for Power BI now support ArcGIS Enterprise. This ability is now available in a public preview release. ArcGIS Maps for Power BI delivers mapping capabilities within Power BI, and allows the use of an organization’s GIS content (in ArcGIS Online or ArcGIS Enterprise), directly within existing Power BI reports. Users can also geocode and spatially-enable other tabular business data, so that it too can be mapped. The solution comes with map content – including curated basemaps and a wide variety of contextual reference layers. It lets users analyse their location data using operations like drive time areas, infographics, find similar, and more. Complete Enterprise support is planned for the January release, aligning with the ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8 release. In the meantime, the public preview release supports ArcGIS Enterprise 10.7.1; earlier versions of ArcGIS Enterprise will not work. During the public preview timeframe (October – January) any ArcGIS user can sign in using their organisational account and use their Enterprise content. A subscription and licensing change will occur after this public preview period. For the final Enterprise release, each ArcGIS user will need a premium app subscription license to sign in. The preview release supports logging in with ArcGIS identity (built-in authentication). Other authentication security models are not currently supported.
