PowerBI

powerbi (lgrosjean variant)

Microsoft Power BI is a data analytics solution from Microsoft

The powerbi utility is used to trigger a refresh of a PowerBI dataset. Usually this is run in a pipeline following a transformation (i.e. dbt) step that altered the data that PowerBI is connected to.
