CCH Central and Power Bi

I’m trying to understand if anybody has successfully connected Power Bi to CCH Central

Didn't find your answer?

Hi,

we are trying to connect power bi to CCH Central to analyse the data better than CCH seems to do itself. 
 

We've been quoted a ridiculously high "consultancy" fee for CCH to help. 
 

I don't think we need that I just need to connect CCH Central to Power Bi so I can design the reports/dashboards that we need. 
 

Had anybody done it without their help or do we really need their "consultancy"

You can pay for their API (£1,500 I hear tell is the going rate) or tap into the SQL database for BI reporting purposes. All you need is the user name and password, which is universal for all firms and hasn't changed in 15+ years...
