Using BeautifulSoup library in Python can give you a lot of flexibility. The downside is, if you don’t have them already installed, is needing a pip install for soup, a request library, and a lxml, or html5 parser. Power BI has a faster way of scraping data, but at the cost of waiting for PowerQuery to parse through each page.

Radu Bobirnac’s passion is in bringing datasets together to show the bigger picture in the simplest possible way. Radu’s desire for speed and service of staff have led him to use Power BI to paint an internal sales picture. In addition to the amazing staff at CSG, his superheroes include Marco Russo and Alberto Ferrari
