Self-service big data prep (dataflows) available in Power BI Embedded

Posted on Tuesday, December 18, 2018

Self-service big data prep, called dataflows, is now available in Power BI Embedded.

Previously, capacity resources were used exclusively to run queries on your dataset. Now, new services like dataflows (named "Workloads") are available in capacities. These workloads join the existing data-querying load, which is now called "Datasets workload." Dataflows make data preparation easy, so fewer specialized skills are required to transform and clean up data, and they're available to embed Power BI reports and dashboards. 

Use the Power BI admin portal to get started for now, and the Power BI REST API in the coming weeks. You can set the maximum memory consumed to give you control of your capacities. For more information, see Configure workloads and Default memory settings.
