Power BI Premium and Power BI Embedded available for Azure Government
Power BI Embedded and BI Premium are now generally available for Microsoft Azure Government, extending existing Power BI capabilities to support U.S. government agencies and their partners in advancing the mission
Power BI Premium offers dedicated capacity for your organization or team, giving you more consistent performance and larger data volumes without requiring per-user licenses. This premium service enables you to:
- Distribute content to anyone: Power BI Premium lets you distribute dashboards, reports, and other content broadly, without purchasing individual licenses for each recipient—whether they’re inside or outside your organization.
- Even greater performance with dedicated capacity: Get the performance your organization, department, or team needs—with even more capacity in the Power BI service allocated exclusively to you.
- Deploy on-premises or in the cloud: Choose Power BI in the cloud or keep reports on-premises with Power BI Report Server—with the flexibility to move to the cloud at your pace. View reports through the portal, on mobile, or embedded in your applications.
Power BI Embedded is a platform service that helps you supercharge your applications with stunning and interactive visuals, dashboards, and reports. With Power BI Embedded, quickly create, deploy, and manage data-rich applications using Power BI and connect to hundreds of data sources for real-time analytical insights.
The driving vision for Power BI has always been to enable users across roles, disciplines, and industries to get value by drawing insights from their data within minutes. In response to customer demand, we’re adding these new services to Azure Government to empower government agencies to share analytics more broadly and embed analytics in applications more easily. Power BI delivers an end-to-end business intelligence solution while helping government agencies and their partners comply with regulatory and policy requirements.
This announcement reinforces Microsoft’s longstanding and full commitment to support the needs of U.S. government agencies, delivering the exclusivity, highest compliance and security, hybrid flexibility, and commercial-grade innovation required to better meet citizen expectations
