Installing Power BI Desktop is really simple and it’s FREE . Just go to https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/get-started and download the latest version to your machine. Run the executable and . You are now empowered to create your own amazing reports.
The PBI desktop will be from now on your best companion and soon you won’t be using any other toll to do your analysis.
In more than 95% of the times you will already have a MS Office license in your Organization. Although if that’s not the case and you don’t have one licence you can sign up Office 365 for a 1 month trial.
Note: You will need to have a work or school email account to sign in into the Power BI Service or Power BI Mobile. More on that later. For now I suggest you start to discover the possibilities of the desktop version.
