Getting Started with Power BI, pt. 4

Last week, I posted part three of our Power BI Primer series discussing administration of Power BI Sites and user permissions.  This week we’re finishing up with Part Four.
If you are an Office365 customer, then you have almost certainly heard about (if not seen) Power BI.
The cloud-based analytics and collaboration platform from Microsoft has some pretty amazing features, and really extends the Microsoft BI platform not only into the cloud but into a more self-service oriented mode.   However, one of the challenges to getting up and running on Power BI has been, well, knowing how to get up and running!
And that’s where we come in.
Perficient has created a 4-part video series that provides step-by-step instructions for getting your Power BI instance working for you.  From getting your Power BI Site set up, to administering it, and connecting your Power BI workbooks to on-premises data sources — this series has got you covered!
So let’s take a look at Part 4:  Power BI Connections to On-Premises Data

This video rounds out our series by looking at how to set up a Data Management Gateway, such that your Power BI hosted workbooks can be refreshed with on-premises data.
Thanks for reading this Power BI Primer series, and we hope it has been helpful.  Now go out there and get that data!
Cheers!
