You push the little valve down, and the music goes round and round. Where does it come out? What does that have to do with PowerBI?

Say all you want about deep learning, machine learning and neural networks – eventually enterprises are going to generate reports and dashboards for analytics. In the end, that is where “the music” comes out.

For Microsoft that dashboard and reporter often take the form of PowerBI. This analytics visualizer is an important part of the company’s analytics effort, and one of the earliest examples of its rebirth as a “cloud first” software provider.

But, although Power BI Report Server has its feet in the clouds, it is also striving to play an on-premises role. At the recent Pass Summit 2017 in Seattle, Microsoft enhanced that offering with scheduled data refresh, Direct Query, and a REST API capabilities. All this was part of the discussion on this edition of the Talking Data Podcast.

Tune into the Talking Data Podcast, as we report from Pass Summit on Power BI, and other Microsoft technology initiatives.
