Azure offers a rich data and analytics platform, so you can build scalable BI and reporting solutions. Create rich, interactive reports with Power BI by having it connect to Azure Analysis Services, which uses a highly optimized in-memory engine to provide responses to queries against user-friendly semantic models, within a fraction of a second. The underlying data is provided by Azure SQL Data Warehouse, which acts as a central repository of integrated data from one or more disparate sources.
