Power BI can be configured to store data in Common Data Model-compliant folders in your organization’s Azure Data Lake Storage Gen2 account where data developers and data scientists can access that data via Azure services. Over time, more and more Azure services (such as Azure Machine Learning, Azure Databricks, and Azure Data Factory) will introduce built-in support to read and write Common Data Model-compliant folders.

Power BI can also connect to Common Data Model-compliant folders created by Azure services in your organization’s Azure Data Lake Storage account, enabling analysts to work seamlessly with this data in Power BI.
