What is Power BI Premium and Embedded?

Power BI Premium is Microsoft’s Business Intelligence and Analytics platform aimed for larger organisations. Whilst Power BI Pro is based on individual licencing, Power BI Premium is licenced with dedicated capacity which enables reports to be published broadly across the entire organisation without the need to licence individual users.

Power BI Premium allows organisations to scale performance with dedicated hardware and capacity, and the ability to maintain on-premise Power BI reports with the Power BI Report Server.

Power BI Embedded is a solution that allows application developers to embed Power BI reports within their applications. It is aimed at software developers and independent software vendors who wish to provide embedded analytics and visuals within their application without having to develop the core analytics engine. There is no end user licencing requirement for Power BI Embedded as pricing is based on a per hour rate for a chosen capacity.
