SDMX is one of the main protocols used for transmit statistical data from International organizations such has Eurostat. It is currently possible to connect PowerBI to it, but there is a lot of work to do, concerning the query. If we have a get data source for SDMX would be great.

RE: SDMX connection

SDMX is a powerful and flexible API for data and metadata exchange. Let's further empower our toolbox with this connector.

RE: SDMX connection

We need as many tech solutions as possible based on SDMX.

RE: SDMX connection

A certified SDMX connector would be a great opportunity to make official statistics (from national stats offices, central banks, and international organisations) easily accessible in SDMX, to be explored, combined and used for policy analysis. So please Microsoft have it certified!

RE: SDMX connection

Some public websites only have data in a SDMX format. Will make our life easier if we can pull them automatically into PowerBI

RE: SDMX connection

It would streamline PowerBi work with some many official statistics sources!!!

RE: SDMX connection

This is a great idea and one that we are looking into.

It is very easy to get SDMX-CSV data into Power-BI from a file or REST API (using the header Accept="application/vnd.sdmx.data+csv"). There is also a video showing how to get data from SDMX-JSON: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gZmHuHb6D-Q

Nevertheless, a dedicated connector would make building reports from SDMX sources much more user-friendly. What do you think the supported formats should be?

RE: SDMX connection

SDMX is supported by StatCan, the Canadian economic data warehouse. A proper connector would be extremely useful.
