Power BI Limitations and Issues

I’ve been experimenting Power BI recently for a proof of concept development on building a simple dashboard to display the consumption of electricity across different equipments. This dashboard was being built on a datawarehouse DB. Following are some of the observations I found in my initial experimentation with it. Neverthless there could be lot of promise in the latest releases. I leave it to the viewers to check Power BI in their own discretion.

  1. Unable to provide custom label the axis
  2. Drill down capabilities are limited
  3. Close integration with Power View onlyPower BI
  4. Limited documentation on the deployment scenarios
  5. Inability to export to multiple formats
  6. Facility to develop color or formatting based on expressions (As of 30th April 2015 they have started working on it)
  7. Limitations on data sources exists

These are all some of the limitations based on my exploration.
