Power BI Premium Per User

My organization has a premium capacity. Will there be any potential benefit to us from using the new per user licensing scheme? As far as I understand it, you'd need  a premium capacity license to access a workspace in per user premium, but I assume you could publish an app for anyone to view... at least that is how it works in premium capacity hosted apps... Will this be the same for per user, or would app users also need a premium per user or other license?

 

If anyone in the org would be able to view an app published from a premium per user workspace, I would think it may provide an incentive to switch from a premium capacity to a per user scheme, so I doubt this would be allowed. Thanks...

hi @SeattlePowerBI 

The report is on a premium workspace. free license users could see it.

 

For normal, if you want to share a private report to others, you and others both need the Pro license.
If you have purchased Premium and add your content to Premium, then when you share the content, the receiver could be free user.

Hi @SeattlePowerBI ,

 

The pricing for the new licensing is not out but that should be a factor in your thinking.  Also, there are a number of capabilities that the Premium Per User will not have that are one of the powerful reasons to have Premium in the first place.  That said, to see content in a Premium Per User App, you will have to be a Premium Per User license.

I would appreciate Kudos if my response was helpful. I would also appreciate it if you would Mark this As a Solution if it solved the problem. Thanks!

 

@collinq do you know when pricing may be available under UK CSP?

Hey @LisabCT ,

 

All I have heard is "this year" so hopefully in the next 6 weeks or less.  But, Microsoft is pretty tight lipped about these things.
