This post explains how to create a PowerBI report which sources data from two separate Azure SQL Databases. PowerBI offers two data access mechanisms; Import and DirectQuery. DirectQuery provides a range of benefits, the chief of which is that data is automatically refreshed. DirectQuery doesn’t import any data into PowerBI, instead it queries the data […]

How to use Power BI Embedded with AspNetCore

by Matthew Adams

If you are looking to build an AspNetCore website, and take advantage of Power BI embedded, you’ve probably found that there isn’t any SDK support for basic report rendering (yet).

As Partners for Power BI, endjin is doing more and more interesting things with data and visualisations every week. Recently we were asked to develop some custom visualisations based on work item KPI data from inside Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS), which required us to get to grips with the underlying VSTS REST API. This post […]


Automating R Unit Tests With VSTS

by Jess Panni

I recently demonstrated how it was possible to automate the deployment of R models to Azure Machine Learning through VSTS. Of course, this is only part of the story; what about testing? It is important to ensure that all production code is adequately tested, and R is no different. Writing unit tests for R models is straight-forward […]


What is Azure Machine Learning? Azure Machine Learning (Azure ML) is a fully managed cloud service that enables you to easily build, deploy and share predictive analytics solutions. Azure ML allows you to create a predictive analytic experiment and then directly publish that as a web service. The web service API can be used in […]


We’re currently working on a project to migrate a customer from AWS to Azure. As always, we like to put a Continuous Delivery pipeline at the heart of the project to ensure there is zero friction pushing out changes across all dev, test and production environments. Two years ago I wrote about the process we […]
