Simpson Associates Power BI Portal

Deliver interactive Power BI reporting to unlimited users both internally and to your external customers.

What is the Simpson Associates Power BI Portal?

Microsoft Power BI is undoubtedly a great tool for visualising and analysing your data within your organisation. However, when it comes to sharing reports externally, the Power BI Service isn’t quite as flexible as you would probably like it to be. 

The Power BI Portal by Simpson Associates addresses this need by allowing you to share your Power BI reports both internally and externally. The Power Portal has a customisable and streamlined process for managing users, report access, data security and permissions.

Benefits of using the Simpson Associates Power BI Portal:

Impress your customers with powerful analytics within a customised web portal experience.

No need for your users to have any prior knowledge of Power BI or to even have access to Power BI.

Easy to configure dynamic row-level security for internal and external users.

The Power BI Portal is an all-in-one solution that can easily be deployed into your environment and configured to fit your business needs. 

Managing users can all be handled within the Power BI Portal itself. In fact, users do not need access to Power BI at all, or any prior knowledge of Power BI, for them to be able to consume the reports. 

Easily offer customers an additional service offering with analytics via our portal or grant internal users customised access without Power BI administration.

The portal provides tools to help ensure your Power BI data models can apply the security you need when you configure dynamic row-level security (RLS), making sure your data is being accessed securely.

Our Power BI Portal can be made to fit your organisation perfectly. For that reason, there are a number of further key features that will make your portal super effective and efficient:

Gillian TroupGroup Financial Controller

Simpson Associates provided us with the expertise to see us through the design and the implementation phases and potential problems that we hit and got us through those. But they also understood our needs as a charity, the components that make up our data warehouse come partly from Microsoft, partly from other companies like Civica and Simpson Associates provided the glue to help us bring those together and get the best out of them.

Jon FoxAssociate Director of IT

Simpson Associates was dedicated to matching our brief, There was healthy debate of course but they always presented reasoned responses, or accommodated our wishes when needed. It’s a very flexible relationship and the synergy we’ve built is vital to the knowledge transfer process.
