Clarity by SEIDOR – Hybrid Model

With the introduction of Business-to-Business Cross-Tenant Sharing by Power BI in September 2022, Clarity now offers you the ‘Best of Both Worlds’ with the release of the Clarity by SEIDOR Hybrid Model.

Experience the ‘Best of Both Worlds’ with the Hybrid Model

This means that SEIDOR Analytics can host a Clarity by SEIDOR file in the Clarity tenant and share it with our clients who have their own Power BI PRO licenses in their own tenant. This provides the advantage of both local hosting and SEIDOR hosting in one package.

When should you consider the Hybrid Model?

There are benefits associated with the Clarity portal, the largest benefit being the cost-effective Power BI licensing cost. Likewise, there are many benefits of the Power BI portal, however, for the cost-conscious client, or those clients who have a high number of Clarity users (10 or more), the monthly Power BI PRO license can add up quickly. The Hybrid Model allows the “normal” users to use the Clarity portal at a lower Power BI license cost, and the “advanced” or “specialised” users can continue to use Power BI PRO licenses for the benefits listed below.

Benefits of the Hybrid Model

  • Flexibility to create your own reports alongside the Clarity by SEIDOR reports.
  • Management and monitoring of the health of the Clarity by SEIDOR file on your behalf.
  • SEIDOR Analytics licence capacity is used for storage, data refreshes, access and more.
  • Clarity by SEIDOR reports will be available in the same environment as reports created by your colleagues.
