Focus blog entry: Get the Power of Location-based analytics in Power BI using ArcGIS Maps

In today’s world, data analytics has to become pivotal for making informed decisions and decision-makers are always keen to find new and innovative ways to improve their knowledge about their customers. One of the key facets of that information is the geographic of your customers especially when your customers are geographically scattered around the county or World. This allows organizations to know which regions are performing well and where do they need to focus more to improve their presence. The most efficient way to present such information is through a map chart and the Power BI team recognized the importance of it which is why Microsoft has teamed up with ArcGIS to integrate their digital mapping and location analytics software solution in Power BI and provide their customers an exceptional mapping solution for presenting the geographical data. In this blog, we will take a look at this new mapping solution called ArcGIS for Power BI, how to utilize it using live data coming from SharePoint Lists and what benefits it presents to the customers.

Read all about it in this month’s article: Get the Power of Location-based analytics in Power BI using ArcGIS Maps.

SQList feature of the month: Export all Lists with Exclusions

This feature is accessible from Step 3 of replication when user select SharePoint lists for export, and it allows them to easily select all SharePoint Lists and mark the ones which you they don’t want to export at the time of replication.

The main benefit of this feature is that any new lists added to the SharePoint site will automatically become part of that replication and will be exported to the database as well. Therefore, users don’t have to add newly created lists manually in the replication to be exported.

If you want to know more details about this feature, check out the video blog explaining how it works: AxioWorks SQList Export all Lists with Exclusions
