With built-in connectors, Power BI can be connected to hundreds of data sources from Microsoft, Salesforce and other vendors. The data can be on-premise or on cloud.
Power BI’s deep integration with other Microsoft products such as Dynamics 365, Excel, Office 365 including SharePoint, Microsoft Flows and Power Point, makes it easy to use and shortens the learning curve.
Power BI Q&A integrated with Cortana allows users to ask questions about their data using natural language and get their answers in the form of reports or visuals created automatically. So, a non-technical user does not have to learn complex query languages.
Developers can easily add custom visuals into Power BI and visualize dashboards and reports in their own way.
Developers can embed Power BI content into a web app or other software products using Power APIs.
Users can get a taste of Power BI by starting free with Power BI Desktop and as data storage, analysis and reporting needs grow over time, organizations can purchase the capacity that’s needed – by licensing users individually or going for Power BI Premium.
