Power BI Pro or Power BI Premium – what license should you choose? – Data Ascend
Power BI Pro and Power BI Premium are both cloud-based services from Microsoft that enable business users to access, analyze, and visualize data.
Power BI Pro is a subscription-based service that provides an interactive visual analytics platform for individual users or small teams of up to 5 people. It allows you to create powerful dashboards with visuals such as charts, maps, tables and more in order to get insights into your data. With the Pro version you can also share reports across your organization securely.
On the other hand, Power BI Premium is a larger enterprise-level offering which includes features such as unlimited scalability and capacity for large datasets as well as advanced security options like row level security and multi-geo compliance capabilities. It also offers dedicated compute resources for faster query processing times when dealing with huge amounts of data. This version of Power BI is ideal for organizations who need high performance analytics solutions on their own secure environment without having to worry about scalability issues or additional costs due to increased usage by multiple users within the organization.
The license type you should choose depends on what kind of use case you have in mind for your organization: if it’s mainly individual/small team use then go with Power BI Pro; however if it’s an enterprise solution where there will be many concurrent users accessing large datasets then opting for Power BI Premium would be the better choice since
