How it works with Actionstep

  • Actionstep activates the connection to your system to allow an overnight export of data.
  • We build you a secure database, which is hosted in Azure.
  • Each evening, Actionstep will provide us with a data snapshot of your system.
  • Using a Verlata proprietary tool, this data is imported overnight into the Azure database.
    The Power BI reports are written against this Azure database.
    Please note that data is current as per the previous days’ COB.

Interactive Sample

The below is an interactive sample of the File Openings report.
You can interact with the report, apply filters, sort columns and get a sense of how Power BI presents data in a dynamic way.
This is best viewed and interacted with in a desktop environment.
