Power BI in SSRS On-Premises Integration – January Preview is available

After the first technical preview of Power BI report publishing into SSRS report platform (Azure VM) the next step is available:

The SSRS team announced an installable version in their post on the SSRS blog. With the January 2017 Technical Preview you can try the Power BI integration in your own VM. Currently only live connections to Analysis Services (either multidimensional or tabular) can be used as sources.

Besides the setup for Power BI integration, Microsoft mentions a Technical Preview version of Power BI Desktop that is required for successful publishing of Power BI reports to the on-premises SSRS server.

In addition to the installation package, you can also try the January Preview in an pre-configured Azure VM.

The Power BI into SSRS integration itself is planned for the next version of SQL Server – not as an update for SQL Server 2016!


Happy Power BI publishing,
