What is Power View ? Power BI interview questions and answers 096

 What is Power View ?

It's important to note that Power View is no longer available in Power BI. It was a data visualization tool within Excel and SharePoint Server 2013, but it was removed in October 2021. For data visualization in Power BI today, you can use the more powerful and advanced features of its built-in visualization capabilities.

Here's some additional information about Power View:

What was Power View?

  • A visual data exploration and presentation tool that allowed users to create interactive charts, graphs, maps, and other visualizations.

  • Offered a drag-and-drop interface for easy data exploration and visualization.

  • Supported connecting to various data sources like Excel files, relational databases, and cubes.

  • Enabled user interaction with visualizations, allowing users to filter data, drill down into details, and highlight specific elements.

Why was Power View removed?

  • Microsoft aimed to consolidate data visualization capabilities within Power BI.

  • Power BI Desktop offers a wider range of features and functionalities compared to Power View.

  • Power BI integrates seamlessly with other Microsoft services like Azure and Office 365.

What are the alternatives to Power View in Power BI?

  • Power BI Desktop offers an extensive library of built-in visualizations, including charts, graphs, maps, and custom visuals.

  • Users can customize these visualizations with various formatting options and interact with them to filter data and explore deeper insights.

  • Power BI allows creating interactive reports and dashboards with multiple visual elements, providing a rich and comprehensive data exploration experience.

Moving forward:

If you were previously using Power View, Microsoft recommends migrating your reports and visualizations to Power BI Desktop. While the interface may differ, creating similar visuals and interactions is easily achievable in Power BI.

I hope this information clarifies the status of Power View and provides insights into the advanced data visualization options available in Power BI today. Please let me know if you have any further questions or need help migrating your Power View reports to the modern Power BI platform.
