      Deploying an Azure data pipeline for Power BI

      While every Power BI deployment is unique, clients often ask us to improve Power BI scalability using Azure pipeline services. Our process in a typical project like this is as follows:

      Phase 1: Analyse data pipelines and business logic

      At this stage, one of our consultants will work to understand the data sources intended for use with Power BI. This will culminate in a report detailing the data sources and business logic transformations used on this data.

      Based on this analysis, we’ll provide a recommended plan of action for building pipelines in Azure Synapse or Azure Data Factory.

      Phase 2: Build automated data pipelines in Azure

      Once the plan is agreed on, we will work to implement an Azure-based data pipeline for Power BI. For example, we might use a cloud-hosted Azure SQL database to consolidate the data.

      Then we would automate the batch or real-time data pipelines in Azure Synapse. Any existing business logic and data mappings would be retained to combine the data before connecting it to Power BI.

      Phase 3: Ongoing support and maintenance

      With the new platform in place, we’ll ensure its ongoing success with Power BI managed services and support. This service helps cover our clients against any new BI requirements or skill gaps that arise.

      FAQ about Azure pipelines for Power BI

      What is a data pipeline in Azure?

      An Azure pipeline is a group of data activities that performs a task. By grouping these activities into a pipeline, you can manage them as a set. An example pipeline could:

      • ingest and clean log data
      • start a mapping data flow
      • analyse the log data
      What's the difference between Azure Data Factory and Azure Synapse?

      Azure Synapse Analytics’ data integration features are based on Azure Data Factory. So these two Azure solutions have a lot in common. For a full breakdown of what each service can do, see Data integration in Azure Synapse Analytics versus Azure Data Factory.

      What other Azure services can I include in a data pipeline?

      You can connect almost any variety of Azure services to a data pipeline. A common data pipeline setup combines Azure Data Factory, DevOps, and machine learning services.
