I'll like to explore power bi but I don't want to use my company email since my employer is using Tableau. I'm a developer in our IT dept. Is there a developer account that I can sign up for? I tried to use my personal email but MS doesn't seem to allowed that. I've googled it many different ways but can't find a developer account sign up.
It's a shame. I'll like to try power bi and perhaps make a case for it since it seem cheaper than Tableau and fit what my employer use for.
You can download Power BI Desktop to get a general sense of how you could import and manipulate data and create reports:
Proud to be a Datanaut!
At the of he day, if you want to try all features, you will need to create a service account, and that is only available with a work email.
You can sign up for a free account, and you can get a 60 day trial of the Pro features just by activating it by trying out something that falls into the Pro Feature category. You will be prompted to accept the 60 day trial. That gives you all the capabilities of Power BI.
