    The use case that I'd like to see a reality is something like this:

    1. IT/Analysts etc make datasets/apps in Power BI using corporate data in the desktop
    2. Business users capture and compile data in their business units (surveys, responses, ad hoc analyses, proposals etc) that is ad hoc, short term or otherwise not part of a line-of-business system lending itself to inclusion in the datasets
    3. The data prepared by the business units can be related to existing datasets by common identifiers like customer, supplier, project, dates etc by business users in the browser

    It is this last point that is compelling for me. Many corporate environments won't tolerate the idea of Power BI desktop rolled out and updated for all users but our Pro licensed users (everyone these days!) would have an excellent opportunity to self-serve with anywhere/anytime access if this capability were enabled online.
