Microsoft has introduced the first per-user Power BI Premium offers. Power BI Premium is currently sold only in a capacity construct.

Power BI Premium Per User provides access to enterprise business intelligence (BI) and analytics capabilities. Its flexible individual seat licensing caters to small and medium-sized businesses.

 

Power BI Premium Per User allows organizations to license Premium features on a per-user basis.

Premium Per User (PPU) includes all Power BI Pro license capabilities, and also adds features such as paginated reports, AI, and other capabilities that are only available to Premium subscribers.

With a PPU license, you do not need a separate Power BI Pro license, as all Pro license capabilities are included in PPU.

You can get a trial version of Premium Per User (PPU) through Microsoft 365, as long as your organization has not restricted PPU licenses. Trials are enabled through the portal, similar to how Power BI Pro licenses are initiated.

 

The following table describes the Premium Per User (PPU) features against a Premium capacity:
