Power BI Desktop is part of the suite of tools from Microsoft that enables data to be analysed and published from a variety of sources. With Power BI Desktop, you get a report authoring tool that enables you to connect to and query data from different sources using the Query Editor. From the datasets you build with Query Editor, you can create reports and visualisations or dashboards within Power BI Desktop and subsequently publish reports.
