Power BI Desktop Version --> can I use it without the Microsoft cloud

Dear all,

 

as we are dealing with sensitive customer data, I have the following question to you regarding the Power BI Desktop Version.

My set up: I am registered over my company e-mail in power bi and I currently use the Power BI Desktop version as well as the Publishing Tools on a 60 days trial version.

 

--> If I only use Power BI Desktop without Publishing it to the web, it will only remain within my premises, right? That means, it will not be stored in any cloud, correct?

--> Would the answer to above change, if I am a) a pro user or b) an unregistered user?

 

Thank you very much in advance for your prompt reply!

Unless you click the 'publish' button, all your data stays with you (on premise) 

this doesn't change if you upgrade your licence etc - until you publish, or share the .pbix file with any one, you are in complete control.

Hello Hans-Jörg,

 

the thing is.

 

To stay away from the cloud you are only allowed to publish on your Power BI Report Server.

If you publish in the Power BI Service - you are in the Cloud.

Pro/unregistered user does not change the answer as you are only allowed to publish to the Power BI Report Server.

 

If you have any further questions I will be happy to help you.
