Manage Power BI within organizations. This book helps you systematize administration as Microsoft shifts Power BI from a self-service tool to an enterprise tool. You will learn best practices for many Power BI administrator tasks. And you will know how to manage artifacts such as reports, users, work spaces, apps, and gateways. The book also provides experience-based guidance on governance, licensing, and managing capacities.
Good management includes policies and procedures that can be applied consistently and even automatically across a broad user base. This book provides a strategic road map for the creation and implementation of policies and procedures that support Power BI best practices in enterprises. Effective governance depends not only on good policies, but also on the active and timely monitoring of adherence to those policies. This book helps you evaluate the tools to automate and simplify the most common administrative and monitoring tasks, freeing up administrators to provide greater value to the organization through better user training and awareness initiatives.
