Build your own Reports and Dashboards with the launch of PPO’s BI API

Today, we take a giant leap forward with the introduction of this highly anticipated feature. We’re launching the PPO Business Intelligence (BI) API, making it possible for you to build your own reports and dashboards by easily connecting your PPO data to your BI reporting tool of choice. PPO’s BI API supports the OData restful service which is widely supported by many applications, Tableau, Qlik, Microsoft Excel and Power BI to name a few.

Features of the PPO BI API

With stakeholder project and portfolio management (PPM) reporting requirements constantly evolving, PPO’s BI API allows you to connect to any BI reporting tool and turn PPO’s raw data into insightful and interactive reports and dashboards.

Users, with the required access will now be able to:

  • Create and activate API Keys
  • Manage data export settings
  • Connect PPO to your BI reporting tool of your choice

Ready to see this feature in action? Check out this short video that explains Accessing the API, Connecting using Excel and Connecting using Power BI.

PS The new API available is to all PPO clients and is part of your standard subscription fee, thus there is no additional cost for using this API. To learn more about the functionality, check out our Knowledge Base and the BI API Fact Sheet.
