Azure Billing Data
Make it possible to connect directly to Azure billing data and generate reports and dashboards that a customer can use for charge back, understand consumption, predict usage growth, etc.
You can do this now. This fellow built an excel model: http://www.edmondek.com/Azure-Usage-Analytics-Report-Feb-2017-Update/
You can import the data model and query into Power BI. You can use it directly or simplify it. He created a separate date table to allow reporting by month, but you don't need that in Power BI if you use the automatic date binning feature

Is this being developed for customers who are not EA customers?

The Azure Enterprise content pack is a step forward but only works via the web version of Power BI, the desktop version is still more feature rich, I think it would be good to allow the desktop version to connect to the billing API.
There is a Azure Enterprise content pack published last week.

This would be really helpful. I use Readify Lab's experiment to accomplish this today for my enterprise agreement reporting: https://azureea.labs.readify.net/
