    Power BI by itself is not enough to meet the needs of our organization, the capabilities of paginated reports (i.e., SSRS) is required. However, it does not make economical sense for us to spend $5K per month for Power BI Premium when we can simply keep our on-premises Enterprise SQL Server Enterprise licensing and run Power BI Report Server internally at less cost. If the 8 cores and 25 GB of memory provided with Power BI Premium included an actual dedicated SQL instance in addition to the Power BI Premium service that would make the decision to go to premium more palatable. Another option might be to include paginated reports with Power BI Pro at a slightly higher cost than the normal $9.99 per user. I think the latter option would be best for the Power BI / SSRS community while still allowing Microsoft to recoup the cost of the development of "SSRS" like functionality online.
