You are not allowed to do calculations in PBI!

Hi all, this is more discussion, my current employer has said that we are not to do calculations within power bi, instead we have to contact our IT services company and get them to do the calculations within the cube (reporting services) and then we should use that instead.

But isn't this going against what power bi is all about? I.e. being a self service tool that is flexible, dynamic and quick, rather than having to rely on external IT people creating measures for us to use? Would be keen to hear thoughts and opinions and hopefully, how people changed opinions on this matter. Thanks.
