Connecting Power BI to SAS Question

Hi All

Been struggling with the approach to take in connecting Power BI to SAS.

I need to try and pull data directly from SAS to power visualizations and table summaries in Power BI.

A number of persons seems to favor the OLE DB approach - Others the R script approach (Unfortunately I cannot install R in the environment which requires this SAS to Power BI solution)

Any suggestions from possibly persons who have worked with SAS to Power BI

Most appreciated if possible and kind regards
