How can we improve Power BI?

Allow PowerBI mobile app to open local files

Hi, Power BI allows us to create great insights supporting our daily jobs. While we can use the desktop version in my company, we have a security issue with publishing to Cloud. Data protection is heavily focused.
To avoid breaking any internal rules on data protection, we would definitely benefit from option where PowerBI mobile would allow users to open local files without having them pushed to Cloud via Publish function in PBI desktop.
Viewing local files works great with Word/Excel/PowerPoint on mobile.
Thanks for considering / reply

        Keep in mind that SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) 2016 (Enterprise Edition albeit) will likely provide much of the Power BI functionality (minus the dashboards/pinning) on-prem. So although our very large organization has determined that MS' security is far better than what we could provide ourselves, if you could not store your data in Azure, this would be an alternative. I would also suspect that Power BI Mobile will then be modified to connect to SSRS, but that's purely conjecture.

        wait... the report in the cloud with the data in a local computer with a "heavily focused data protection polisy"? or a report downloaded in the mobile with the data in the mobile, but how you get those two in the mobile? or a report that contains the data and the graphs?

        i mean what?

        This is an almost identical problem to the one I face in my company. Any alternative solution to this has my vote.

        I have seen capability of the tool. This seems to me very agile way of future reporting. Self service reporting available always on time. Nice vision so let make this come true.
