Is there a checklist or roadmap for things to do/modify/change? Converting from Free to PRO

Hello friends,

 

We are converting from free power bi to power bi pro.  Is there a checklist or roadmap for things to do/modify/change?

Things like RAM, processor, disk space etc….

 

What IT department needs to do/modify/change in order to make successful transition from free power bi to power bi pro?

 

We have approximately 10 business users who will be creating reports/dashboards and sharing with 500 end users.

IT will be creating data models with SSAS/SQL and business users will build reports/dashboards on top of data models.

 

Thanks in advance.

Have a great week

HI @bhavinpatel_23,

 

Pro license is for power bi service so there is no device changes for licensee update, it will direct add pro features to accounts who assigned pro license.

Quickstart: Assign Power BI Pro licenses in Office 365

 

For your scenario, I'd like to suggest you take a look at power bi premium license, it will more suitable for huge users tenant and embedded reports.

Hi @v-shex-msft

Thank you for your reply.

I found below yesterday. It looks like IT needs to include web part in sharepoint to share reports/dashboards securely. I am looking for more things like this to leverage Power BI pro effectively.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/service-embed-report-spo  ( Embed with report web part in SharePoint Online)

Is there anything else IT department needs to do to leverage Power BI pro effectively?

Thanks again,
