How it started / How it’s going

If you are on social media at all you will see meme’s about How it started vs. How it’s going. In the thread of Melissa’s tweet we have a fun image showing the progression of Power BI End-to-End architectures. The number of changes since 2015 is absolutely stunning. Power BI has grown up a lot since 2015. That being said, I’m greatly encouraged to see the Microsoft Power BI team pushing amazing new features.

Learn More about Power BI End-to-End

A one page document can contain a lot of information about Power BI. However, it can’t capture every aspect of Power BI. Thus, if you’d like to learn more about Power BI and it’s Administration, Please check out Melissa’s Training. The Power BI Development and Governance Workshop is a deep dive for users who need to administer Power BI.

We hope you enjoy this great document to use or share with your team. I’m confident that you will find areas of interest or learn about new ways to leverage Power BI.
