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!

Microsoft Business Intelligence Certification 70-448, SSIS, SSAS, SSRS

I just passed the Microsoft BI certification test 70-448 on SSIS, SSAS, and SSRS. It was a tough test and covers all aspects of the Microsoft BI stack. I used a lot of different study materials. Here is my assessment of the study materials I used and which ones helped the most.

MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-448): Microsoft SQL Server 2008-Business Intelligence Development and Maintenance: MCTS Exam 70-448 (Self-Paced Training Kits) (Paperback): This book was great, if you do all of the labs in this book and study all 200 questions in the practice test it will get you prepared for the test. Just doing the practices questions on the CD is not enough. The labs in the book have a lot of questions, you need to know these also.

Transcender I would say this helped the with the practice questions but not the flash cards. The Flash card section of the training material had a lot of typos and just plain wrong information. However the practice questions were very good.

I am not getting any incentives by any of these companies.
