Business Intelligence Software Microsoft – Update: Please note that the free preview of Fabric workloads (except Power BI) has been extended from August 1 to October 1, 2023.

Companies have been collecting and storing massive amounts of data from applications, services, Internet of Things (IoT) sensors, and other sources for decades. And every year the volume of collected data grows at an astonishing rate.

But extracting value from this data has proven challenging for most. Unmatched data is discarded. Inconsistent data can lead to high integration costs. Poor data quality sabotages new AI models. Outdated reports cause wrong insights. All of this stifles the ability to unlock the full value of data, hindering innovation and AI experiences.

Reasons To Use Microsoft Power Bi

Today we’re excited to introduce Microsoft Fabric and Copilot to Microsoft Power BI. Fabric, now in review, is a complete human-centric analytics product that brings together all of an organization’s data and analytics in one place. It brings together the best of Microsoft Power BI, Azure Synapse and Azure Data Factory into one unified Software as a Service (SaaS) platform. Data engineers, data warehousing professionals, data scientists, data analysts, and business users can collaborate seamlessly within Fabric to foster a data culture that works well across the organization.

Copilot in Power BI, now in private preview, combines advanced generative artificial intelligence with your data to help everyone discover and share insights faster. Simply describe the insights you need or ask a question about your data, and Copilot will analyze and extract the right data into a stunning report – turning the data into instantly actionable insights.

Fabric offers six experiences: a Data Factory-based data integration experience, data engineering powered by Synapse, a data warehouse, a data science and real-time analytics experience, and a business intelligence (BI) experience with Power BI—all hosted on a SaaS-centric on the lake solution. We are also developing an experience called Data Activator that will help users immediately react to changes in their data by deploying a detection system that automatically alerts the team with the right context to take action.

Power BI users will continue to enjoy all the functionality available to them today. With the launch of Fabric, Power BI Premium customers can easily turn on the Fabric tenant setting in the admin portal. With Fabric’s pooled capacity model, Power BI Premium capacity can be leveraged for any of the new workloads. Read this documentation for more information about the single capacity Fabric model. Power BI Pro users can access this functionality through a trial capacity.

In addition to providing access to six other powerful experiences in Fabric, we’re also announcing several Power BI Premium-only features designed to transform the way you analyze and visualize your data.

Introducing Copilot in Power BI! With Copilot in Power BI, we bring the power of big language models to Power BI at every layer to help users do more and create more value from their data. Using Copilot, you can simply describe the visuals and insights you’re looking for, and Copilot will do the rest. Users can create and customize reports in seconds, generate and edit DAX calculations, create narrative summaries and ask questions about their data, all in conversational language. With the ability to easily adjust the tone, scope and style of narratives and seamlessly add them to reports, Power BI can also provide insights into data even more effectively through easy-to-understand text summaries.

We’ve already published quick action suggestions for DAX capabilities that help analysts quickly create the code they need. The rest of the Copilot experience in Power BI is now in private preview. Stay tuned to the Power BI blog for the latest updates and public release date for Copilot in Power BI.

Power BI standardizes open data formats by adopting Delta Lake and Parquet as its native storage format to help you avoid vendor lock-in and reduce data duplication and management. Direct Lake mode unlocks incredible performance directly against OneLake, with no data movement. Combining this with the ability of other analytics engines to read and write data directly in the lake, Fabric will reshape the way business users consume big data. Power BI datasets in Direct Lake mode enjoy query performance on par with Import mode, with the real-time nature of DirectQuery. And the data never leaves the lake, so there’s no need to manage refreshes.

We’re thrilled to announce a preview of Direct Lake mode for Power BI datasets on Lakehouses. We plan to launch Dataset Preview in Direct Lake mode on datastores soon. Datasets in Direct Lake mode for storage are in private preview for now, but it takes effect if you use SQL Endpoint for Lakehouse.

To try Direct Lake from your Lakehouse or Warehouse in Fabric, click New Power BI Dataset, select the tables you want to include, and click Confirm. Open the data model to create measures and relationships as you would any other Power BI dataset. Finally, click on new report and create beautiful Power BI reports. Notice the integrated experience from data in the lake to report creation without leaving the browser or refreshing.

We also enable more seamless collaboration with your development team on Power BI content with Git integration. Now you can easily connect your workspace to Azure DevOps repositories to track changes, rollback, and merge updates from multiple team members into a single source of truth that will sync to your workspace with one click.

Customers can leverage Git integration and deployment pipelines to manage the end-to-end application lifecycle by developing through Git integration and deploying their Power BI content to development, test, and production workspaces. Developers can use the user interface (UI) experience or automate the process through other tools, such as Azure Pipelines.

Building analytical solutions is complicated. Data teams must manage everything from user roles to data entry, security, compliance, collaboration, workspaces and more. With Fabric, Power BI, Synapse and Data Factory are unified on a single SaaS platform. This enables data teams to collaborate in a single workspace, on the same copy of data, with centralized administration, management and compliance tools. These capabilities include data origin and impact analysis, data protection with sensitivity flags, data approval, administrator oversight, and more. And these unified experiences make it easy to jump between tools and collaborate with others on the team. Moreover, with the large amount of data and analytics projects being built within the organization, effective discovery and management are critical. OneLake Data Hub empowers everyone in an organization to centrally discover and explore the data available to them that is relevant to their business domain, take further action or build on what others have started.

Purchasing and resource management is greatly simplified with Fabric. Customers can purchase a single set of computers that run all Fabric experiences. With this end-to-end approach, customers can create solutions that freely leverage all workloads without any friction in their experience or commerce. Universal computing capacities significantly reduce costs, because any unused computing capacity in one workload can be used for any workload. For Power BI Premium customers, existing Power BI Premium P SKUs will automatically support all new Fabric experiences. Starting June 1, the new Fabric SKUs will be available for purchase in the Azure portal, which gives you access to all of these experiences.

Power BI customers can gain access to Fabric today by enabling the Fabric tenant setting in the Power BI admin portal. To give Power BI administrators time to prepare, we turned off the switch by default. You can choose to opt in or out of Fabric through the admin portal. You can also choose to enable Fabric for specific users or security groups within your tenant. If no action is taken by the administrator, Fabric will be turned on by default for all Power BI tenants starting July 1.

Additionally, if you want to try out Fabric in one or more capacities before enabling it for the entire tenant, you can enable it for specific capacities in the capacity settings tab within the admin portal. Like the tenant setting, this capacity setting can also be limited to specific users or security groups.

If your administrator has enabled Fabric at the tenant level, all Premium capacity will automatically be upgraded to support Fabric. In addition, capacity administrators can enable Fabric at the capacity level (as described in the previous section), allowing anyone with access to this capacity to use new Fabric experiences. To help you prepare for how this will affect your Power BI Premium usage, the new Fabric experiences will not reduce your capacity usage before October 1, 2023. However, you can monitor how Fabric affects your capacity usage through the Capacity Metrics app.

If you don’t have Power BI Premium yet, you can get access to a free trial of Fabric (learn more about the Fabric trial). If your tenant administrator has enabled a trial, you will automatically be granted trial Fabric capacity when you (1) create an item that requires capacity or (2) click Start Trial from
