The company has integrated and enhanced many existing Power BI capabilities with those found in SSRS, to enable customers to leverage these features for all their assets in Power BI.
According to the company, Paginated Reports can consume data from Azure Analysis Services and Power BI datasets. This allows customers to build on the enterprise semantic models already used across Power BI. So, it helps reduce the complexity of reporting deployments that mix interactive and paginated reporting.
 
The company said that Power BI Report Builder has been optimized for authoring content for the Power BI service. Now, authors can securely connect to Power BI and browse workspaces, open paginated reports and edit them live. You can also save them back to the Power BI service without requiring them to download and re-publish their content.
 
The company has introduced several enhancements to E-Mail Subscriptions capabilities in Power BI. A new capability, to allow consumers to subscribe themselves and others to content stored in Premium workspaces and distributed as part of their Apps, is also rolling out this week.The company has also added the ability to enable and disable e-mail subscriptions, for the first time in the Power BI service.
 
James Newsome, Senior Business Intelligence Manager at Insight Enterprises, Inc. said : "With Paginated Reports in Power BI, we finally have a one-stop shop for our users to consume different types of reports. This has truly been a game changer; users no longer must search multiple places for the desired report. This new implementation has improved the overall experience of consuming reports and has increased usage throughout the business to make critical decisions based off data."
