web power bi? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,


    I am applying for BI jobs, and one position sent me a test and asked: “use Google Data Studio, Tableau or any dashboarding tool (that provides online access) to query the data and plot graphs…”

    I have a 2012 MacBook air with only 4GB of ram, so I don’t think downloading power bi is an option… Is there a fully web-based version of power bi?

    (I was given an IP to access a postgres backend).

    ps: in the past I used desktop power bi, but it was paid by the company I worked for.

  • Hi there. Power BI Desktop currently only runs on Windows, and there's no web version. Dual-booting or virtualizing Windows on your Mac might be your best bet.
