We’re excited to announce that we’re making available a Technical Preview of Power BI reports in SQL Server Reporting Services. We plan to release the preview on Thursday along with some more info, but in the meantime, here are a couple of key things to know:

  • This Technical Preview is a pre-configured Virtual Machine in the Azure Marketplace. The VM includes everything you need, even sample reports and data, making it quick and easy to give it a try. We wanted to offer it to you while we continue to work toward a preview you can download and install in your own on-premises environment.
  • This preview supports Power BI reports that connect “live” to Analysis Services models – both Tabular and Multidimensional (cubes). We plan to extend support to additional data sources in a future preview.
