Overview: Power BI
Use Power BI to analyse, share and report on your data
Microsoft Power BI enables you to integrate, analyse and present your data more effectively through use of an extensive library of visualisation tools that can help bring your information to life.
There are two sets of access available:
If you purchase a Power BI Pro licence you will be able to share reports, dashboards and apps with other users (both report consumers and other writers) and decide the level of access they have. As a report writer you will be able to create datasets within Power BI, pulling data from multiple sources. Most dataset creators will be report writers, but some report writers might only be creating reports based on datasets shared with them by others.
Report consumer (business user)
As a Nexus365 user you will have a free Power BI licence allowing you to view reports and dashboards that have been shared with you by a report writer, and you will be able to create and publish reports yourself but not share them with others.
To access Power BI via the web or desktop see How to access Power BI, or see our How to access Power BI desktop via CONNECT remote desktop service page.
