Understanding Microsoft Power BI vs. Microsoft Fabric


I came across a blog/opinion piece on Google not long ago and it made me stop and pause about the inaccuracy of the information. The author was pleading his case for why Microsoft Fabric is replacing Microsoft Power BI. It made me realize it was worth a quick education to our readers on how Microsoft Power BI and Microsoft Fabric are two different platforms that cater to vastly diverse needs.

Power BI is a business intelligence tool that can turn raw data into useful insights for users. It was designed to empower businesses to make informed decisions on their data by using visualizations.

Microsoft Fabris is an all-encompassing analytics solutions tailored toward the use of enterprises. Its goal is to provide a comprehensive platform for business users and data analysts to use in unison to study areas such as data movement, data science, real-time analytics, as well as business intelligence.

Microsoft Fabric uses OneLake architecture, which serves as the foundational data lake for all services connected to it. Whereas, Microsoft Power BI, is knows for an easy-to-use interface and its ability to connect to various data sources. It is a great tool for businesses that need to visualize their data and gain quick insights from it. Microsoft Fabric is a more comprehensive solutions that works best for organizations that have diverse needs.

Simply said, if your business needs data analysis, Microsoft Power BI is the quickest and easiest way to achieve this. If your business needs more than data analysis at a glance and needs to study the data for various other factors and comprehensive reasons, Microsoft Fabric is a better fit!
