Our application collects a large amount of data in a proprietary format in MS SQL, and we have built a Power Query model to transform the data and connect to Power BI to facilitate reporting and visualization. Most of our customers are very happy with Power BI, but we have one customer that is heavily invested in Tableau and we’d like to see if there is a way to feed our data to Tableau to support their needs.
Tableau can consume data from Microsoft Analysis Services, PowerPivot or SQL Server. So we are looking for a way to connect our Power BI Power Query model, or the pbix file to any of those options. We cannot bring the data into Excel to create a Power Pivot model, because the data is too large.
Any help appreciated!
Is it possible to reproduce the query model used as a Tableau custom sql statement against a support data source - MS SQL?
