Power BI Help

Hi, Not sure what the right forum is, I have asked the same question on Power Query, but I just thought I would as here as well.

 

Coming from OBIEE background, and wishing to learn Power BI, what are the components do I need to install? My intention is to understand the whole Power BI stack, such as backend server, data model, report building, ETL etc. I am trying to establish what the Power BI equivalent components are of OBIEE Server, Data Modeller (Repository), Analystics, Enterprise Manager. I would really appreciate if someone could help... Thanks

Re: Power BI Help

First of all you'll have to understand that in most cases Power BI is a cloud service (actually SSAS Tabular in the cloud).

For testing it you'll need to set up a Power BI account with trial Pro license. 

Then all you have to do is to download Power BI Desktop where all the magic happens (talking about ETL and report creation). 
There are also some other parts like Dataflows which just contribute to the landscape.
