Familiar. Collaborative. Managed.
Today, we are pleased to announce a new offering that builds on our self-service BI story -- Power BI for Office 365. Unveiled this morning by Satya Nadella, President of the Server and Tools Business, during his keynote at our annual Worldwide Partner Conference, Power BI for Office 365 is a complete Self-service BI solution delivered as part of Excel and as an offer for Office 365. Power BI provides everyone with powerful new ways to work with data in Excel and Office 365. Search, discover, and access data from public and internal sources and then transform and shape that data from within Excel. Analyze and create bold interactive visualizations to uncover insights to then share and collaborate out through new BI experiences for Office 365.

Hello! My organisation would greatly benefit from PowerBI being available on-premise as we currently have SQL 2012, SPS 2013 and Office 2013. We will be forced to look for third party BI providers if we can't use the actual MS BI strategy in our own MS-based BI stack.
The same with me - please remember that many bigger companies are not going to move to 365. As we do not have good presentation layer for our needs managers still thinks that MS platform is not suited for our needs. If you create great stuff which only looks good on presentations it does not help to convince managers and change attitude to MS tools.
