One of the most common question I get when I give Power BI session is : Can I publish “that” in my SharePoint site ? The answer to this is : Yes you can, but it depends on what you meant by “that”.
Power BI is build around 3 basic concepts :
I won’t be covering these in details in this post, but in a nutshell :
- A dataset is something you connect to or import into Power BI;
- A report is a bunch of visualisations (pie charts, bar charts, etc.) using the data from the datasets;
- A dashboard is an aggregation of visuals that might come from multiple reports.
So, to answer the question better : Yes you can publish a report in a SharePoint site by using the Publish to web feature.
