Analytics Algorithm Add-In for PowerBI

Hi - I'd like to develop an add-in for PowerBI that runs some proprietary analytics algorithms.  They involve multiple database queries, etc, as well as lots of custom logic.  Eventually I'd like to distribute via the AppSource.

 

1) Is this possible to do in principle?  I am finding it difficult to find content around developing algorithms against PowerBI data.

2) What resources would be most helpful to do this?

 

I already have a standalone application (see factorprism.com).

 

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Dave

Well, you could create a Power BI Template, Content Pack or utilize Power BI embedded in your custom application. Those are the routes to take in a nutshell.

Re: Analytics Algorithm Add-In for PowerBI

Thank you.  Re the Template or Content Pack route, is it possible to run queries and logic with those?  I've really only found resources utilizing these to display pre-computed results (or to feed in results in a predefined dashboard).  Can you please provide a source on how to execute logic with these?

 

Thanks again.

AIAIK, it is not possible. You can check this idea Power BI add-ins / plug-ins and vote it up.
