  23. 23. Planning Data Strategy Data Import Live Connection Data location Original data source Power BI cached dataset Original data source Data size Constrained by available memory on desktop Limited to 1 GB in Power BI Service None Report queries Send to data model Sent to original data source Performance Excellent and predictable Depends on the data source Data refresh Required to sync changes (except when models are deployed to OneDrive or SharePoint Online) Not needed Gateway Required for on-prem refreshable data sources Required for direct connection to on-prem data sources Mash up data from multiple data sources Yes No Supported data soures Many SQL Server, Oracle, Terradata, DB2, MySQL, SharePoint List (on prem), Files (CSV, XML, Text, Excel, Access) Folder Excel Power Pivot (via Power Query only) Power BI Designer Cloud SQL Azure Database Azure Data Warehouse Azure Spark Amazon Redshift (soon) Impala On premises Analysis Services SQL Server SAP Hana Oracle Teradata Power BI Datasets Cloud Services (DirectQuery) On-premise Data Analysis Services, SQL Server, SAP Hana, ... Enterprise Gateway (DirectQuery and refresh) Refreshable Data Sources (RDBMS, Power Query, ...) Personal Gateway Cloud Services (no direct connect) Liveconnection Import/Refresh Service
  24. 24. Feature  Connect live to your existing on-premises data, including SQL Server Analysis Services o You can keep your data on-premises and enable BI analysts / end users to create Power BI reports o Connect to and refresh data securely via Azure Service Bus (SSL encrypted connection) o Service Bus only uses an outbound port, it does not require an inbound port to be opened on the on-premises firewall Live Power BI dashboards and reports Cloud On-premises SQL Server Analysis Services Live Query SaaS solutions e.g. Marketo, Salesforce, GitHub, Google Analytics On-premises Data Organizational Corporate data sources or external data services Azure services Azure SQL, Stream Analytics… Connect live to your on-premises dataData sources
  25. 25. Feature  Realize the benefits of a SaaS-based BI solution without moving your data to the cloud  Everything in the service is encrypted - Power BI uses HTTPS for all traffic  For on-premise sources, e.g. SSAS, role- based and row-level data security is applied  Data remains on-premise, only query is stored in Power BI  Power BI requires valid accounts that meet the requirements of the specific data source  Please see table for authentication methods Keep your data where it is and connect securely Authentication method Select data sources that use this method Basic SQL Azure, Marketo, ODATA Feed Account key Blob store. Table store, HDInsight OAuth Salesforce, Google Analytics, ODATA Feed Marketplace key Azure Marketplace Anonymous ODATA Feed, Web Data authentication methods Data sources SaaS solutions e.g. Marketo, Salesforce, GitHub, Google Analytics On-premises Data Organizational Corporate data sources or external data services Azure services Azure SQL, Stream Analytics… Data sources

  28. 28. Scenario 1 Data Analyst and Heterogeneous Data • Data is imported into a single model • Power BI Desktop • Excel • Model is deployed to Power BI Service (size must be <= 1 GB) • Refresh is scheduled • Enterprise or personal gateway must be installed • Unless the model is saved to OneDrive or SharePoint Online
  29. 29. Scenario 2 IT Builds a On-prem Semantic Model • SSAS semantic model is build on top of data warehouse/data mart • Single version of truth • Deployed to a dedicated server • Scale to terabytes • (Alternative) Direct access to RDMBS (SQL Server, Oracle…) • Direct Query is used • No data is deployed to Power BI • No refresh is required • Enterprise gateway is installed on premises
  30. 30. Scenario 3 IT and Direct Query Cloud Source • Direct Query is used • SQL Azure Database • Azure Data Warehouse • Amazon Redshift • Azure Spark • Impala • No data size limitation and no refresh is needed • No gateway is required • Performance depends on data source
  31. 31. Scenario 4 IT and Non-direct Query Cloud Source, e.g. Salesforce • Data is imported • Content pack (up to 1 GB data size) • Custom import in Power BI Desktop • Solution template can be used (currently Salesforce, Dynamics CRM and Twitter only) • Gateway is required if data is staged to on-prem database
