Bring your own database using Azure Data Lake and Power BI data pools (BYOD)

This new offering combines the best features of the entity store and Bring your own database into one service. You can choose data - Entity store schemas or Entities, and the service keeps the data refreshed. No need to schedule or monitor export jobs. Data can be stored in Azure Data Lake. Because the data is visible to Power BI as data pools, you can create rich data mash-ups by combining data from Finance and Operations with other sources. Now you can import your own data into Azure Data Lake and build your cloud data warehouse. Since the data is in your own Azure subscription, the data is accessible using other Azure services such as Azure Data Factory, Azure Machine Learning, Databricks, and Hadoop.
