Common Jira Power BI Integration Challenges

1. Developing Jira to Power BI Connectors is Complex

Developing Jira to Power BI connectivity in-house requires considerable domain expertise and development prowess to build optimized connection interfaces, which can drain resources and incur costs. Although Power BI to Jira integration via API URLs is possible, users have reported facing issues importing all project planning and team performance data and carrying out significant querying.

2. Performance Reports Are Rigid

The inability to see burn rate and progress charts within Jira can leave missed insights that could have benefitted the business. Furthermore, lack of read and write options within Power BI means any reports or dashboards built have to be edited from within Jira tables to bring about changes that can be tedious and time-consuming.

3. Difficult to Reconcile Project Management and Sales Data

The standard ODBC or CData Jira to Power BI connector doesn’t support integration with multiple sources such as SaaS solutions and databases at once that can prevent achieving a single view of expenses and sales performance KPIs under one roof. Instead, it would require separate connectors to connect Jira to Power BI and other sources, leading to higher licensing and development costs.

Integrate Jira with Power BI to Effectively Measure Team Progress

Acterys takes the pain of data experts away by integrating Jira with Power BI & other client-side apps using Acterys Apps. Now you can activate the beast mode on your Jira reporting analysis and move accurate, real-time insights from your Jira server to Acterys MS SQL server for data transformation and cleansing.  Once done, data can be pushed to Power BI, Excel (using Excel-Add in) or even to Tableau or Qlik visualization software.

1. Get 360 Degree Visibility Into Team, Task & Ticket Planning

Create fully editable interactive reports and dashboards of Power BI to Jira data to gauge team performance and ticket reports. Combine task management reports with budgeting data from SaaS software (e.g. Xero, Dear Inventory, QuickBooks), web applications, among others on Acterys’ virtualized SQL database to gain a better understanding of your business expense.

2. Easily Alter Progress Tickets and Dashboards

Add new dimensions and customize Jira Lifecycle stages to include partners, investors, analysts, and other stakeholders directly from within Excel or Power BI without affecting Jira’s source data to suit individual business needs. In comparison with CData Jira-Power BI connector, Acterys provides built-in reporting templates for a wide variety of scenarios, which can be modified and customized to perform reporting for particular categories and dimensions.

3. Simple Setup and Quick Turnaround Time

Utilize the Acterys platform’s one-click setup to configure Power BI to Jira data within 2 minutes. Dive deep into each data source for granular reporting and analysis and modify dimensions on the fly. Benefit from AI-generated insights to create key reporting takeaways for accelerating budget, forecasts, and operational planning decisions.
