Power BI Premium is a dedicated, capacity-based offering. Learn about the differences between Power BI Pro and Power BI Premium, and how Power BI Premium manages capacity resources. Featured tools you can use with Power BI premium are also covered.

Working with on-premises data sources requires configuring a gateway between Power BI and the on-premises data source. This module examines how to work with gateways and SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) data sources that are used either for scheduled refresh or for live connections.

You can broaden the reach of Power BI by sharing your reports beyond your Power BI environment. You can publish reports to the public internet, embed reports in Microsoft Teams or in PowerApps, and place BI reports in a SharePoint online web part. There's also a special version of Power BI service called Microsoft Power BI Embedded (PBIE) which allows application developers to embed fully interactive reports into their applications without having to build their own data visualizations and controls from scratch.

Cmdlets are functions written in PowerShell script language that execute commands in the Windows PowerShell environment. Running these cmdlets will allow you to interact with your Power BI Platform without having to go through the admin portal in a web browser. Combine these cmdlets with other PowerShell functions to write complex scripts that can optimize your workflow.
