Power BI is a reporting tool. It can't be used to put data back to data source. For your requirement, you should use ETL tool like SSIS to update data in SSAS cube or data warehouse.

@Mangou Power BI isn't a data entry tool... I'm not aware of any way to make that portion work. The outbound and analyzing that data is obviously supported very well.

Maybe something like Microsoft Flow would work for the inbound, combined with Power Apps?

Hi Eno,

 

thanx !

 

But the Flow is just to automated services and Powerapps is used for developing apps. Is it possible to use apps for put data in a Data Warehouse ?

 

Did you have some examples ?

@Mangou I have not personally done what you are asking about, but I am making the assumption that these two tools would be a good place to start looking to see if they would offer what you need. In my mind, you need an interface to input data (Apps) and a process to populate your warehouse (Flow). Whether or not those tools support that, I can't answer, as I haven't worked with them directly yet.
