Faster Insights. Greater Collaboration. Better financial storytelling with the Vena Power BI Data Connector.

TORONTO, Jan. 8, 2020 – Vena Solutions, the leader in finance process management software, recently unveiled its Power BI Data Connector, giving users a versatile and powerful new tool for analyzing company data, collaborating and sharing insights, and making more informed decisions across the organization.

With the Power BI Connector, finance professionals can instantly generate eye-popping graphics and visualizations of key company metrics on any device—from laptops to tablets to phones. Dashboards and reports are accessible online at any time, eliminating clunky email links and tedious downloads, and empowering CFOs, business managers and analysts with ongoing, real-time insights they can use to make an impact and tell the stories in their numbers.

Dominic Di Bernardo, Chief Business Intelligence Officer at Cumming Corporation, had this to say:

“With the Vena Power BI Connector, connecting Vena data with other key data sources – with very little effort – was critical to understand when we may be off-trend. This integration gave us the ability to quickly adjust, focus on the problem and find a solution.”

Highlights of the Vena Power BI Connector include:

  • Instant Insights with at-a-glance visuals that make the numbers come alive and enable more meaningful collaboration, throughout the organization.
  • Setup in Minutes with a certified data connector from Vena to Power BI, and pre-defined data integrations.
  • Real-time Decisions with data that’s always accessible—on any device—and always up-to-date.
  • Exponential Value with the ability to scale across other operational groups and generate diverse reporting mediums for different stakeholders.

Along with the Power BI Data Connector, Vena’s latest release offers enhanced Ad Hoc analysis for self-serve reporting and data exploration, and continued improvements to performance and modeling.
