Microsoft's Power BI app is now available for Windows 10 PCs and tablets

Microsoft has bought its Power BI app to Windows 10 PCs and tablets. The app, which allows businesses and enterprise customers access to its data gathering and analysis tools, was previously released for Windows 10 Mobile in late December 2015, which means the app is truly a universal one for any Windows 10 user.

Microsoft says:

"The Power BI universal app is designed from the ground up to run on Windows 10 using the capabilities you already know and love, such as pressing and holding on your dashboard index to open the context menu, or gaining quick access to a dashboard simply by pinning it to your device home screen as a tile."

  • Power BI is so awesome. Anxious to see Cortana Analytics in the future, and action of course.
  • How much did they buy it for? See first sentence...
  • Can I use this for website to show up "likes" "comments" and other such data?
  • There is a Google Analytics content pack that will automatically create a pretty nice dashboard of charts for GA data.  
  • Crashes on my 635, alas.  I suspect memory requirements.  
  • I suspect the same thing. And apparently Microsoft doesn't care to check if apps work with 512 RAM, they shouldn't have made the app available to low memory devices.
  • Bought or brought
  • Finally
  • I can't seem to grasp how this app works (i.e. how it reads your data sources and shoots out comprehensible data analyses).
  • Microsoft has always excelled at not communicating very well the capabilities and features of it's products, or even the point of them.  I work in IT, and I have a hard time deciphering what many mid and top teir products of theirs are supposed to do, and their cloud-based offering descriptions are filled with so much buzzword and ambiguos descriptors I have no idea how they would apply to my company or if we would benefit from them.
  • Thanks, that certainly gave an idea as to how this works.
  • *brought
  • Yipee can't wait to have a play with this, been using the desktop and web versions a while. Cortana can be frustrating to learn to get on with but once you can she is great. She can even understand my bad spelling
