Power BI Consumption Options

Power BI is a business intelligence data visualization tool from Microsoft, which can be used to explore specific types of Planview Enterprise One data.  It allows non-technical end users in your organization to create analytics and dashboards by themselves, without the need for technical report development skills or a technical understanding of the data structure. They can create interactive dashboards with drill down functionality in minutes. The main advantage of this reporting solution is it's simplicity of use, while still being mature enough that it can be also be used by report developers for complex data modeling and visualization scenarios.
