LAFD Intranet and Power BI Integration

Imagistic and Jessica Thompson of Fundamental Design Group worked closely with the captains of the Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD) to integrate custom Microsoft Power BI reports in a secure part of the LAFD intranet. Imagistic had constructed the LAFD intranet a few years prior using the Drupal CMS, and displaying Power BI reports required additional authentication and integration with the city's Active Directory to leverage user roles and access. “This project was particularly complex because we were working behind the city's firewall,” Imagistic CEO Kevin Howard Goldberg explained. “We needed to integrate with the city’s Active Directory data, as well as the external Power BI-generated reports. But we were able to do it successfully, on time and on budget.”
