Power BI Publish to Web for Anonymous Access is Here

Earlier this week on Wednesday the Microsoft Power BI made an incredibly exciting announcement and released Power BI “publish to web” as a preview feature. This is HUUUUGE news! This was probably the top requested feature and its finally here thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Microsoft Power BI team!

Power BI “publish to web” allows you to easily expose a Power BI report to the world through an iframe that can be embedded wherever you like.

To publish your Power BI report to the web, log into your Power BI site.

Find the report that you want to share and click File in the top left.

You’ll see a message pop up box similar to below. Click the yellow button to create the embed code.

This is where you’ll see a very important warning!
WARNING: Reports that you expose through the “publish to web” feature will be visible to everyone on the internet! This means NO AUTHENTICATION is required to view the report that is embedded in your application.

Once you do that, you’ll receive an embed code that you can then use to expose your Power BI report within your blog as seen below!

As you can see the report maintains all the interactivity features of Power BI. And as your Power BI report updates and changes, those changes will be reflected in your embedded Power BI reports!

Pretty awesome!

Why Do I Like (LOVE) My Job #MEME15

It looks like I am a day late to completely follow the rules, but I thought I would chime in anyway on #Meme15. Why do I love my job? If I have talked to you in person lately, you probably know, because you couldn’t get me to stop talking about it!

Here are the top 5 reasons I love my job as a consultant with Pragmatic Works:

5) I love NOT COMMUTING. For 15 years, I commuted from Edwardsville, IL, to St. Louis, and now I get to work from my home.  I am not sure what I am doing with my extra 2+ hours each day, maybe it is just getting more sleep.

4) I travel two weeks per month on average to client sites. So far, the travel has been fun because I know people all over the country to meet up with during the evening. For example, I had dinner with Tim Mitchell and his wife while working near Dallas and met with Rick Morelan while working in Bothel, WA. I get to go to cool restaurants and see the sites. Except for working for the client, it’s almost like a vacation.  I knew that I would have so much fun in Phoenix that I didn’t even come home during the weekend and stayed there a straight two weeks.   I was not disappointed!

3) Pragmatic Works not only encourages their consultants to learn new skills, we are rewarded for doing so. PW is the model for professional development. I love learning new things!

2) I love writing and teaching. At Pragmatic Works, I get to do everything I love to do.

1) And the number one reason I love working for Pragmatic Works: I love being a superstar and PW lets me be one!
