CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- SQL Sentry, LLC, the developer of award-winning software for SQL Server, is pleased to announce the release of the Power BI content pack for SQL Sentry, originally announced in May. The SQL Sentry Cloud (cloud.sqlsentry.com) already provides web access to your SQL Sentry performance and event data from anywhere, and across any tablet or mobile device. The new Power BI content pack for SQL Sentry further extends these cloud capabilities to deliver analytics for key areas such as performance, downtime, disk utilization, and operations.
"Cloud.sqlsentry.com is a service which is not only useful for database administrators, but also delivers useful, actionable information for ops teams and IT managers alike," said Greg Gonzalez, President and CEO, SQL Sentry. "After a successful development and testing period, we are excited that all our users will now have the ability to take advantage of this service."
The SQL Sentry Cloud team worked closely with Microsoft's Power BI team to create this exciting new service. With it, a SQL Sentry user can easily synchronize on-premises data to the cloud, and gain instant access to the Power BI content pack for SQL Sentry. In addition to pre-built dashboards and reports, users can quickly build custom reports on top of the exposed data model, and utilize Power BI's powerful natural language search for instant insights.
"Power BI makes it easy for users to quickly gain insight from data," said James Phillips, Corporate Vice President of Microsoft's business intelligence products group. "With this collaboration, SQL Sentry customers will be able to connect and view their data from pre-built Power BI dashboards and reports that are updated continuously and automatically."
"Our vision to provide customizable, shareable, and easily consumable dashboards and reports on top of the performance and operational data collected by SQL Sentry comes to fruition with this content pack," said Rick Pittser, Product Manager, SQL Sentry. "The Microsoft team has been a pleasure to work with, and thanks to their involvement, our users have access to another great tool to help them monitor their SQL Server and Windows environments."
