Power BI Report Server for Media & Communications: 1-Hr Briefing

PBI Lab Inc

An overview of how Power BI Report Server 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 Report Server (PBIRS).

Today we say the world has come closer, so has the data! You can get data of any customer based in any country. Imagine the size of the customers, segments, sub segments and cross functional connections of these segments, based on their choices for products, services, geography, features, prices etc. The social media platforms easily avail us the data, but for any media and communications solution provider, it becomes tedious to manage that data. So, comes in handy, Power BI!

With Power BI for Digital Marketing, your data will drive conversations. Combining data from different sources will reveal insights that aren’t available in siloed data. Power BI can also be used to create dashboards for social media monitoring and analytics.

Most of the organizations creating/embedding media content need to delve on usage/analytics data in an effort to improvise end-user experience. To achieve this, developers need to record some of the key performance indicators (KPIs) related to their video/media consumption. Power BI can help you derive values from the most common and desirable KPIs:

  • Which is the most watched video?
  • How many people watched the video until completion?
  • How many times was the video paused and at which position?
  • Which is the most streamed format/bit rate?
  • Platform information and other demographic details.

In order for you to decide the right mix of services and tools that will help deliver these KPIs, a significant amount of time and energy is spent to either create each component from the ground up or build on top of proven platform services.

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
