Early last year Microsoft announced the general availability (GA) of PowerBI for Office 365. Office is the most used office program and PowerBI brings in great value by providing a self-service means to discover, analyze and visualize data leading to deep insights.
Using PowerBI for Office 365 one can easily deploy a cloud-based BI application for sharing insights; collaborating and accessing reports from practically anywhere.
Power BI for Office includes the following Microsoft 'Power' tools:
What are the main capabilities?
PowerBI allows the companies to include the cloud as an arena in which they can share and colloborate. The DataCatalog; Q & A with natural language support; mobile connectivity are unbeatable capabilities.
How much does it cost?
First of all you should be Office 365 Enterprise E3 or E4 customers and it was promotional $20 per month per user for the existing customers. Access this link here for reduced new prices.
However you could sign-up for a free-trial of PowerBi for Office 365 here and you will also get a 30 day trial of Office 365 Pro-plus.
I do not have the Enterprise edition but just a $10 month subscription and I get only 'Power Map' add-in in my Office 365's Excel application.I have not figured it out how I may be able to use this without the other tools.
