Analyze your data in ADLS with more assurance with the recently GA'd Power BI Desktop connector
As you know, Azure Data Lake Store (ADLS) has customers, who analyze/view data stored in ADLS directly using PowerBI Desktop and PBI.com. We been providing this support since late CY2015 with the Power BI connector for ADLS. However, this connector was marked as “Beta” awaiting GA of ADLS and also waiting for feedback from customers. With GA of ADLS in Nov 2016 and good feedback, we are happy to announce that the connector is now marked as GA in the March 2017 update of Power BI desktop!
For current customers, they should not see a difference from a functionality perspective. However, they now have the assurance provided by a GA connector.
