How can we improve Power BI?

Devops Process

There is currently no clear, built-in system for source control, test, gated approval and release of new reports.

If you have admin rights, you have god mode. Use it with caution.

As a result, IMHE analysts teams are likely to learn the hard way about all the reasons why formal IT teams have developed governance controls for software development and release.

I can imagine this becoming a functionality of Power BI Premium since it's an enterprise type feature.

I can imagine a scenario where the reports authors publish to a project in VSTS . Then VSTS' build environment runs unit tests and continuously deploys to the power bi service just as it would to the Azure App service or a Sql database.

Analysts should benefit from the mistakes of generations of developers and be encouraged to follow best practice.
