SUNDAY SURPRISE: New Hybrid BI White Paper added to the White Paper Gallery for SQL Server

There's a fantastic TechNet Wiki article that the SQL Server User Education team maintains:

White Paper Gallery for SQL Server


It's fun to keep tabs on it and see what they add to it. In August they made an addition:


Thanks to Bryan Franz and Joel Hughes for doing such a great job on building and maintaining this article!


In the SQL Server 2014 Section and the Business Intelligence category, they added:

Using Power BI in a Hybrid Environment

And that will jump you down to this new whitepaper:

Using Power BI in a Hybrid Environment

Many organizations are taking advantage of the benefits of cloud computing such as lower capital expenditures and increased agility, while still maintaining data in on-premises data stores. This paper describes best practices for security, networking, and component architecture for building a hybrid business intelligence (BI) environment by using a combination of Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft Azure, and on-premises data sources.

Applies toSQL Server, Microsoft Power BI, Microsoft Azure
Publication date: August, 2014

Using Power BI in a Hybrid Environment

  DOC Microsoft Content


Of course, I'm especially proud of this whitepaper, because it was identified as a big content gap by our Power BI customers, I project-managed it with the help of Carla Sabotta, and we got some of our brightest SQL Server MVPs to author it (Joey D'Antoni and Stacia Misner).

And special thanks to all our reviewers! They are listed at the top and with more info at the bottom of the whitepaper.

And remember to keep check back in on this great Wiki article: White Paper Gallery for SQL Server
