Power BI as a SSBI Platform: Architecture, Strengths, Shortcomings

In this talk we'll look at the 4 architectural options with Power BI: local, SharePoint, O365, and the new Preview. Have you heard of Power BI, some idea of what it's about but don't know the capabilities for each option and how they potentially overlap? If not, this is the session for you. I’ll demo the web portal and the iOS app. We will also try to look at the Excel add-ins depending on what the audience has questions about.
