Power BI for Office 365 with Excel includes data modeling and visualization capabilities and supports 3D geospatial visualizations in Excel.
With Office 365, users have access to cloud-based capabilities to share visualizations and reports with their colleagues in real time and on mobile devices. These key cloud-based capabilities include:
- A Data Management Gateway which enables IT to build connections to on-premise data sources and schedule refreshes. Business users always have the most up to date reports, whether on their desktop or over their device.
- BI Sites, dedicated workspaces optimized for BI projects, which allow business users to find and share data and reports with colleagues and collaborate over BI results.
- Real-time access to BI Sites and data no matter where a user is located via mobile devices. Users can access their data through the browser in HTML5 or through touch-optimized mobile application, available on the Windows Store.
- A natural language query experienced called Q&A which allows users to ask questions of their data and receive immediate answers in the form of an interactive table, chart or graph.
