Microsoft Announces Free Public Preview of Power BI Embedded

At its Build developer conference, Microsoft has announced the preview of Power BI Embedded.

Power BI is Microsoft’s tool for analyzing data and building interactive data-based dashboards and reports. On the second day of Build developer conference, the company announced the preview of Power BI Embedded. With this, the developers will be able to integrate Power BI and its interactive dashboards into their own apps.
 
 
 
Power BI already allowed developers to push data directly from their existing apps to the service through the API. Instead of going through the Power BI apps, they will now be able to build virtually the same functionality right into their own apps with the help of Power BI’s new SDK. Developers will also be able to choose from the same catalog of visualizations which is already available in Power BI and customize them to fit according to their needs.
 
Users will of course not purchase Power BI, for them, the visuals will look the same as any other part of the app.
 
Similar to Microsoft’s other Azure – based services, the company will only charge developers for what they will be using, however, the company has not yet disclosed the details about the pricing.
