Keep your dashboards and reports up to date by connecting to your on-premises data sources without the need to move the data. Query large datasets and take advantage of your existing investments. Get the flexibility you need to meet individual needs, and the needs of your organization.

Secure, easy access to your on-premises data

One gateway for all your cloud services

Install once and deploy multiple on-premises data connections across Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate, and Azure Logic Apps using the same gateway.

Easy setup

Download and install the gateway with minimal interactions. Then sign in with your organization account to register the gateway to be used by cloud services.

Secured access to data

Data transfer between Power BI and the on-premises data gateway is secured through Azure Service Bus. Credentials provided by gateway administrators are encrypted to help protect your information in the cloud and only decrypted on the gateway machine.
