Just a proof of concept to get the feet wet. I believe that Microsoft's vision of the future entails PowerBI and I think that the traditional mechanisms for performing Business Intelligence will continue, as in SSRS, SSIS and Multidimensional SSAS, but I think PowerBI offers tremendous ease of use, quickness to get a working product and ability to share the reports and provide Self Service BI to the masses in their vision for Cloud first.
I don't think you can go wrong by learning PowerBI as I see it as the future for Microsoft BI.
Thanks for reading~!
