With Azure Analysis Services, BI professionals can create BI semantic models based on data that resides in the cloud or on-premises, whether that’s SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Data Warehouse or other data sources to provide business users with a simplified view over their data. Business users can then choose their preferred data visualization tool such as Power BI, Excel, or others, to analyze their data.
