Hi - reference was made to Power BI reporting in the invitation.  Did I miss coverage of that topic, or was it dropped for lack of time?  Was Power BI implied in the coverage of Rest APIs, perhaps?

Hello @dmathias ,

Sorry I missed this one. I gave details on extracting data (particularly through REST APIs for ITAM Cloud user)... this data can later be placed in any data lake that Power BI (or other reporting tools) will read from, eventually with aggregating data from other sources (CMDB...).

That's true this session does not show how to build reporting in PowerBI from the extracted data.

Best regards,
