Integration with Dynamics 365 for Operations - Impact PowerBI Premium

Was wondering how the new PowerBI Premium licensing model would impact integration with Dynamics 365 for Operations. Buying Pro licenses for your full userbase can become quite expensive for 1000+ users hence I was looking into the possibility of the integration between PowerBI and Dynamics 365O working with the read-only access rights that come with PowerBI Premium? (e.g. give a limited amount of 50 key users edit rights on the reports, al others can consume reports by clicking on the tile in D365O en browse around reports on the PowerBI Service)  I didn't find anything on the D365O roadmap nor on these pages. Any input on this greatly appreciated.

 

PS: we are also considering PowerBI Embedded from a cost efficiency perspective however functionality seems quite limited and dev effort quite complicated compared to the full experience on the PowerBI service.

Hi @JanV,

 

It depends on how you want to interact Power BI with Dynamics 365 for Operations, and if this interaction needs Power BI any license. On Power BI side, if the report item with Power BI Premium capacity, any readers can be free or pro user. See: Power BI Premium - what is it?.

 

Regarding Power BI embedded, you can post a thread in Developer forum.

Re: Integration with Dynamics 365 for Operations - Impact PowerBI Premium

Hi Qiuyun,

 

I understand that interactions between PowerBI and Dynamics 365O is key here. It is actually the nature of my question as I'm unaware if this integration/connection would require a pro license or if a read-only license is sufficient.  I suppose best practice wise PowerBI reports on D365O data are developed by a central team and shared on the PowerBI service with relevant employees who can pin the tiles to the D365O application by activating the integration. I don't know if there is any contact at the PowerBI D365O integration team that would be able to help out here?
