Today, Microsoft announced that Power BI Embedded is generally available; offering independent software vendors (ISVs) and developers a way to quickly add stunning visuals, reports, and dashboards into their apps – through a capacity-based, hourly-metered model.
Power BI Embedded has benefits for an ISV, their developers, and customers. For example: an ISV can start creating visuals for free with Power BI Desktop, achieve faster time to market by minimizing visual analytic development efforts, stand out among the competition with differentiated data experiences, and can even opt to charge a premium for the additional value created with embedded analytics.
Developers can spend time focused on building the core competency of their application rather than spending time developing visuals and analytics, they can rapidly meet customer report and dashboard demands, and can embed easily with fully documented APIs and SDKs. Lastly, by enabling easy-to-navigate data exploration in their apps, ISVs allow their customers to make quick, data-driven decisions in context and with confidence from any device.
Power BI Embedded brings the strength and capabilities of Power BI into the hands of ISVs
