Hello,

I was told in my company (one of the IT Architects that work with me) that my team will have to update to SQL Server 2017 if we nt to use PowerBI (not cloud, its the local version).

Do we realy need to move from 2016 to 2017?

Thank you

I don't know the answer but my thought is why hesitating on upgrading to the latest version?
Cool

Because we have several things in our backlog that are very important also. So, if upgrading to 2017 is not important from a powerbi perspective then we can consider the upgrade later.

If you mean Power BI Report Server, then looks like it will work even with SQL 2008

If referring to PowerBI Report Server then any will do - but be careful with licensing - either you have a Enterprise edition with SA (and you can then install it on the server that has the license on) or you need to pay for the cloud version which allows you to install on a local server with up to 8 cores per Cloud node you pay.
