differences between powerbi.com and report server?

Hi please excuse the double posting in both these forums, but i am just trying to get an idea of the main differences between using only the on prem solution vs  the cloud in terms of functionality.

 

The differences i have so far are the following, is there anything else you can add to this?

 

Power BI Report ServerPower BI .Com
No SubscriptionsCan subscribe to reports when udpated
Is only refeshable with SSASRefreshable with any source
no data driven alertsdata driven alerts

Re: Differences between PowerBI.com and Power BI Report Server

@vanessafvg The Report Server will soon have support for more datasources, the team has blogged about this. Think of the Report Server functionality as supporting reports that come from the Desktop, that's it. The Service will have all the advanced features that probably won't ever make it to the Report Server. Natural Language Q&A, Quick Insights, Alerts, Power Apps integration, streaming, etc. But on the same track, The PBI Report Server has capabilities not in the Service. Basically all the functionality and capabilities of SSRS in its new form.

Re: differences between powerbi.com and report server?

Hi

Is there a latest version of this comparision chart anywhere? Or are these differences still hold good.

 

I am looking to see if there are any improvements/functionalities added now or on any approximate timeline on when we can expect self service BI and Natural language query added to On Premise server.

 

Thanks

Re: differences between powerbi.com and report server?

HI @sn123,

 

I think what you are really wanting is a published roadmap for PBI RS, with details of which features we can expect to receive and when. If I'm right then you are not alone!! Man Happy

 

Myself and others have been posting for many months to ask the Microsoft RS team to give us a more professioinal approach to the release of future RS versions. At the moment all we know is that they are doing their best and hope to get something out soon. Communication could be better. 

 

It had been stated by MS that there would be an RS releases every 3 to 4 months, but we are now 5 months since the last release, and still no date announched or expected content detailed. This extended delay means there are loads of Cloud service features to catch-up on making the job of the RS team harder in playing catch-up, at this rate the RS version is going to fall further and further behind. We love PBI RS, but this is now becoming a worry. Man Sad

 

Can anybody at MS comment please @v-qiuyu-msft

Re: differences between powerbi.com and report server?

Seems to me that Microsoft is pushing the best features towards the Service model. Maybe they want to push users into the Cloud because they make more money? It's not acceptable that features like pinning, embedding Views into other views, and other features are not available in Power BI on premises report server. After all, PBIRS is a paid for product, not free. Some of these features are already available by the competition, for example Tableau lets you embedd Views into other views, and even query directly a database on both the on cloud solution as well as the on premise server.
