Introduction to Power BI Recording and Q&A

I hope you were able to attend my free webinar on Understanding Microsoft Self-Service BI on March 13, 2014. If you weren’t you can now download the recording and slides.

I usually like to post follow up questions and answer that I wasn’t able to address during the webinar. Here’s several that may help you!

Q: Can you explain quickly how to use Power View on SharePoint 2010?

To use these together you must have SharePoint 2010 SP1 Enterprise and SQL Server 2012 Enterprise or BI Edition. Unfortunately, there’s not a quick way to describe the rest of the configuration so here’s a post that may help.

Q: What devices are supported by mobile BI

The Mobile BI will be available on Windows 8 and Windows RT devices. There is also a native Mobile BI app for iPad under development.

Q: Are MS planning to remove the dependency on Silverlight for Power View (etc.) thus making it possible to render on iPad?

Yes! There are actually some public betas of Power View working on HTML 5 instead of Silverlight. This will be the major enhancement that allows support for the mobile BI app on IPads
