How can we improve Power BI?

R visuals in Report Server

I think it will be great if report server can support custom R visualization for more data insight!

        We're considering the use of Power BI as our new BI-tool, and the lack of R-support on PBI Report Server was a huge disappointment.

        How come this feature is not even planned ?
        I don't see the point to advertise R where we cannot share it afterwards !

        For which reason it is not planning to have R in PBIRS?
        Not every script is working in PBI Service so I hoped there is an alternative with PBIRS but it is not.. What are you suggestions if there is no SQLServer 2016 available?

        A lot of people are mentioning security and legal reasons for not moving to the cloud. But for many smaller organizations Power BI pro or premium is cost prohibitive. Why integrate R into SQL server and then expose R visuals in the reporting tool, but introduce the "gotcha" that we have to be in the cloud?

        Please we need this feature, else there is no meaning of integrating R visuals in Power BI

        Hi Team,

        We need R visuals to be added in the Power BI report server so that we can publish the reports in server level

        We really need this feature in PBIRS (for example: to make vintage/cohort analysis frequently used for loans). There is no proper built-in visualization. So we hope you will really rethink your decision.
        Regards

        Yes of course, we really need this feature in PBIRS! You can't do every Analytics with onboard PBIRS-Features. I hope you will really rethink your decision.

        I really hoped this would appear in latest release. Nope. If you arent going to support R in PBIRS, why is it available in the IDE? I work for an org that wants better BI tools but dont want to go to the cloud. I hoped PBIRS would be the answer, but its still not there...

        Indeed, when there are no of other BI tools supporting R with their server version, unfortunately power BI is exception. I am not sure what most I can do with desktop version for my client in this context.
        Initially, I had stuck with Arabic character set, and found Power BI Report Server neither support Arabic character set nor ODBC connection over Direct query, hence our client (A renowned bank in KSA) rejected Power BI as a prospective BI tool.
        Anyway, if this is the approach, I think soon we (power BI developers) must switch to another tool.
        I strongly agree to R integration with Power BI report server.
        Best of Luck.

        We really need this feature... please bring it to power bi..... it should have all the feature SSRS

        We definitely need R in PBIRS. Cloud is not solution for large companies (for legal and security restrictions)

      • P commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is definitely needed for use in organisations that cannot for legal reasons move data into the cloud.
