2. Microsoft Power BI Pricing

At first, Microsoft Power BI announced only two pricing plans for enterprises to choose from.

You can install Power BI Desktop on your computer. It provides advanced data exploration, modeling, and report creation with highly interactive visualizations. You’ll be able to save your work to a file, and publish your data and reports to Power BI site to share with others. Compared to Power BI Pro, it provides some additional features such as more storage capacity, more frequent scheduling data refresh, live data sources with full interactivity, groups, and more. It’s a greater tool for sharing and collaboration.

Today, Power BI has added a new pricing: Power BI Premium with capacity pricing/per node/per month. With this new option, it helps you enhance performance and larger data volumes without requiring you to purchase per-user licenses. You can easily check out your cost estimation here.

Despite Power BI pricing differences, the most important factor when choosing the best option for your business is that the tools should provide you the flexibility to deploy BI the way you want it.
