The business case I have for my organisation is to upgrade our Report Server with the PowerBI Report Server version, and to use this as a platform for all our reports. Be it SSRS reports, KPIs, PowerBI reports or Excel reports. I would be able to view all of these in one portal. As of today you have implemented this viewing functionality for PowerBI reports, but you still lack a simple way to view Excel reports. Our end users have to download the excel reports as static files from our report server, which only leads to excel hell. ->> If I could publish the excel reports (that all have SSAS connections) to PowerBI.com and then be able to interact with these excel workbook reports through the Report Server, the same way that I interact with regular PowerBI reports --- Then! I'd have a strong business case. But since this SSAS live connection thing doesn't work, I have zero use for the integration between SSRS, PowerBI and Excel.
