Multiple data sources to build a comparison schedule



Is it possible to use Power BI to consolidate data from multiple sources and calculate the quarter-to-quarter changes? My objective is to compare a loan balance from an amortization schedule (in Excel) at a specific time with the loan balance recorded in our accounting ledger (in Oracle). The challenge I'm facing is how to create a unified table within Power BI that can accommodate two distinct data sets in a single report. Is this a feasible task to achieve?
