How can we improve Power BI?

SAP BusinessObjects BI Universe

All of the current Ideas that mention SAP BusinessObjects BI Universe integration are marked as completed as this feature was offered pre June/July release. This is nearly a critical requirement for adoption in my organization.

I had previously heard that this was removed due to licencing restrictions, can we get an official response on that? Is there any possibility of this being re-integrated?

        I don't normally comment, but this item has been in high demand for a very long time. Our global organization was going to use Power BI on top of the IDT universes, using both Webi and Power BI for data visualization. Since we are not able to connect Power Bi to the universes, we are migrating all of our BO solutions to Analysis Services. I believe we are not the only company migrating away from BO for this very reason. It is disappointing - Power BI reports could have had a dependency on the SAP models, and retained that revenue stream for SAP.

        This is critical for my organization as well! Please have this feature adopted ASAP

        Waiting for that feature to migrate a lot of reports/Dashboard to Power BI.

        This used to be available up to sometime in 2016. Please bring it back. i.e. work with SAP to resolve your issues as this is extremely valuable. Or I guess we could use your competitors products that do incorporate it such as Tableau if you don't want to listen to your customers Microsoft...

        Very important for the organization I am currently working for.

        This would really help our organization have more usage in Power BI if we can integrate the BusinessObjects Universes to Power BI. At this time is stopping many functions because of this gap.

        We have significant user investment in BusinessObjects Universes and would love to offer PowerBI as an alternative to Web Intelligence.

        Yes, Need this connector to leverage the work we have done on Universes. Hoping that Open data initiate between SAP and Microsoft will help.

        Being able to connect to a SAP Business Objects Universe with Power BI would be a enormeous enhancement and step forward. Many companies are using SAP BW and SAP BO. Please add.

        The ability to use a SAP Business Objects Universe model with Power BI would be extremely productive and would increase usage for both tools. Please add.
