Performance feedback on using Power BI for huge data sets (>500K) on Sharepoint Online lists RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    I wish to use Power BI to build dashboards for data sets that are in Sharepoint Online lists. These data sets are going to grow by ~1000 records per day and may reach ~600K records in 12-18 months. I have concerns on the performance issues. Going through similar concerns in this forum, it gives an impression that there might be delays in refresh which the reports stakeholders might not appreciate. These concerns in this forum were, however ~2 years old.

    Can anyone help me understand whether Power BI today, is matured enough to handle the large data sets in Sharepoint Online lists without much perceived performance issues? What are the typical ways that can help come over performance issues, if any.
