Power BI Premium for Government: 1-Hr Briefing

PBI Lab Inc

An overview of how Power BI Premium can help your organization address the challenges of large enterprise deployments and workloads without needing to license each user individually 

We will provide you with a free, 1-hour briefing on how you can derive tremendous value from Power BI Premium.

This Power BI offer is dedicated to helping public sector organizations develop data cultures within their organizations and in the communities they serve.

Public Sector is different. It has different drivers, goals, requirements and laws. For this reason, for example, the Power BI service that's designed for US government customers differs from the commercial version of the same.
