New Webinars on Advanced Query Design and Power BI Embedded

Hello to the good citizens of Power BI community,


After receiving 12 Microsoft MVP awards my work with SharePoint development, this week I finally received my first MVP award for Power BI and the Microsoft Data Platform. I guess you could say I am a Born Again MVP! I am very happy to be in the company of so many of my Power BI heroes such as Marcus Russo, Alberto Ferrari and Chris Webb.


To celebrate this achievement I have scheduled two public webinars on Power BI next week in which I am going to present some in-depth content. I hope you can make it to one of these webinar and, afterwards, I will post the recordings to the Power BI community site for those who are interested but cannot attend due to time constraints.

Advanced Query Design with Power BI Desktop (for advanced users)

This webinar begins by examining how to design queries in Power BI Desktop that import data into a star schema for better data analytics and reporting. If you attend, you learn how to create queries that merge table columns and to append rows from multiple data sources into a single output table. This session will move beyond the basics to demonstrate working with query functions and query  parameters in the Power BI Desktop query editor. If you stick around to the end, you’ll also learn a few tips and tricks for making direct edits to the M code behind a Power BI query.

If you attend, you’ll also learn about the new Power BI embedding features for self-service BI such as the ability to edit existing reports and to create and save new reports in a custom application creating with Visual Studio 2017 and ASP.NET MVC.

Hello Power BI community,

The following statement is from the 'Planning a Power BI Enterprise Deployment' whitepaper.


Customers can acquire Power BI Report Server one of two ways:

  1. Purchase of a Power BI Premium subscription
  2. Via SQL Server Enterprise Software Assurance (SA). Customers with an existing SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) implementation may elect to migrate an SSRS server to become a Power BI Report Server for the benefit of integrating Power BI (.PBIX) reports alongside existing report (.RDL and .RSMobile) types. This migration is a one-way, irreversible, migration. With this method, customers may publish to the on-premises Power BI Report Server only (i.e., a corresponding Power BI Service subscription is not authorized).


Does this mean that when Power BI Report Server in acquired vis SQL Server EE + SA (and not via Power BI Premium) no corresponding Power BI Service subscription is authorized?


Thank you!
