How can we improve Power BI?

Snowflake connector should not require On-Premises gateway

Connecting to snowflake is great in Development.
It did require a download of the ODBC connector. Is there a way, that we could have this baked in when publishing the report, otherwise I need to do this locally and then publish, or establish an On-Prem gateway.

I would really love if Snowflake connections did not require an On-Premises gateway

    It would be helpful to know if this is technically feasible, particularly when it comes to Snowflake on Azure. There are probably logistical challenges for Snowflake's own VNET/public network endpoints as well as potential challenges around which Azure region hosts the tenant's PowerBI instance vs. Snowflake's Azure region.
