What Is Power BI?
Power BI Licensing Options
Microsoft Power BI offers four different licensing options:
Power BI Free:
This option is entirely free, but it has limitations, such as limited data refreshes, sharing, and limited data storage. This option is best suited for individuals who are trying out the platform or working on small projects.
Power BI Pro:
This option provides full functionality, including scheduled data refreshes, more data storage capacity, and the ability to share dashboards and reports with other users. Power BI Pro requires a monthly subscription fee and can be purchased through an existing Enterprise Agreement or as a standalone license.
Power BI Premium:
This option is designed for large organizations with extensive data analytics requirements. Power BI Premium provides dedicated capacity for data storage and processing, as well as improved performance and security. We have started to see this option increase in popularity in recent months. This can also be added through an existing Microsoft EES.
Power BI Embedded:
This option is designed for developers and provides the ability to embed Power BI functionality within other applications.
