I am new to power BI. Currently my company interesting to go with Power BI and we are planning to have Power BI Premium since we will have our own hosting. My question is since we are using Oracle 11g, do we still need to invest for Power BI report server? I am looking forward the answers.
I am not sure what Oracle 11g is but It depends on the how big your organisation is and how they are planning to use Power BI platform.
Power BI Platform has two main licensing components.
Power BI Pro licensing and Power BI Premium licensing.
If you have small number of users (<50 users), then I would suggest you to sign up for Power BI Pro where you can share reports among other pro users
or Buy PBI Premium capacity which allows you to share reports with large number of users without everyone requiring PRO License.
Power BI Premium has other complementary components: Power BI Report Server, Power BI Embedded, Dedicated Capacity, Unlimited licences.
Power BI Report server is the on premises version of the Power BI.com but has several limitations/benefits as well.
You can host SSRS Reports, Excel Reports and Power BI Reports in a single environment. PowerBI.com is a cloud environment and provides you the dedicated capacity, embedding reports to external application etc.
Hope this makes sense!
Thanks & Regards, Bhavesh
