The free Power BI Desktop application allows business professionals to create stunning dashboards using quick and easy drag-and-drop processes, similar to Power View, but without the need to invest in a premium-priced version of Microsoft Office. Additionally, PowerBI.com extends the functionality of Power BI Desktop by allowing you to create and publish BI dashboards to a cloud-based service. Power BI opens a new era in data analysis and reporting. You do not want to miss this opportunity to see how these amazing new reporting tools can help you with your reporting efforts.
