Power BI Report Server (PBIRS) Features

You can distribute reports behind your organization’s firewall and build on your On-Prem reporting infrastructure, knowing it is part of a comprehensive, cloud-ready solution

There are several reasons why customers still want, and even need, an On-Prem solution to host Power BI Reports.

  1. Complement the Power BI Service
  2. PBIRS is useful for customers who want to have an additional choice for where to publish certain content and require that certain reports remain within the corporate firewall

  3. Highly Regulated Customers
  4. For highly regulated customers not allowed to use the cloud-based Power BI Service, PBIRS offers an option for publishing and securing reports.

  5. Integrate into existing investment in Reporting Services
  6. There are many customers who have Reporting Services implementations. Existing content can be migrated to PBIRS without any loss of functionality


We will discuss and understand your current business insight goals in an open and collaborative conversation that will cover:

  • Review of current BI state: you will quickly describe us the current state, where you want to go and constraints
  • Business questions that compel you and the lack of answers you get from your current BI setup


  • Business/IT decision makers
  • Business Analysts
  • Business Intelligence Managers
