Office 365 E3 & Power BI Pro latest information

Hi community, 

 

I'd like to buy and implement Office 365 and Power BI in our small organization. 

 

Therefore I've figured out that we will need Office 365 E3 at least and the desired amount of Power BI Pro licenses. 

 

Example for 3 employees: 

3 Office 365 E3 licenses + 3 Power BI Pro licenses

 

Am I calculating correctly or is there any missing additional information?

Hi @inf1948 ,

 

If you plan to implement Office 365 E3 and Power BI, you need to purchase 1 Office 365 E3 license + 3 Power BI Pro licenses.

 

If you plan to implement Office 365 E5 which contains Power BI service, you just pay for 365 E5 license, no need to buy Power BI pro license separately.

 

Purchase and assign Power BI Pro licenses

Re: Office 365 E3 & Power BI Pro latest information

Hey @v-yulgu-msft , 

 

thanks for your quick answer. 

 

From your explanation I understand that the first scenario with E3 is better. 3 Person within my organization are able to work with Power BI Pro with only one Office 365 license. 

 

The second scenario requires 3 E5 licenses.

 

Did I get it right? 

 

Thank you advance!
