Connect to difficult-to-get-at data

Hopton has a wealth of experience of getting to data. But what if you need to connect to a data source that is not supported by standard connectors, and you don’t want full API development? Or what if you want to enhance the functionality of an existing connector?

This is where Hopton, working with our partner Tugger, comes in. Tugger is a platform that allows you to create custom connectors for Power BI, without writing any code. Tugger lets you build connectors using a simple drag-and-drop interface, and publish them to the Power BI service with a few clicks. You can also use Tugger to test and debug your connectors, and share them with other users.

Tugger connectors are the key to unlocking the full potential of your data. With these, you can:

  • Connect to any data source, whether it is supported by the core connectors or not. Tugger supports a wide range of data sources, such as APIs, web pages, PDFs, Excel files, and more. You can also create your own data sources using Tugger’s custom data source feature.
  • Access and analyse your data in real-time, without loading it into Power BI. Ourtuggers can be used in DirectQuery mode, which means you can query your data in real-time, without loading it into Power BI. This allows you to have the most up-to-date and accurate data in your reports and dashboards.
  • Enrich your data with additional information, such as geocoding, sentiment analysis, currency conversion, and more. Ourtuggers can be enhanced with Tugger’s data enrichment feature, which allows you to add additional information to your data, such as geocoding, sentiment analysis, currency conversion, and more. This allows you to enrich your data with valuable insights that can help you make better decisions.
  • Create stunning Power BI reports and dashboards that showcase your data in the most effective way. Ourtuggers are fully compatible with Power BI, and they can be used to create reports and dashboards that showcase your data in the most effective way.
