Need suggestion on which product to use RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've been doing some research on BI with the desktop version and it looks to be capable of creating the reports I need. However, I'm not sure how to get some of the backend data syncs to work.

    My end goal is to have Power BI sync off a SQL DB hosted in Azure (PaaS) automatically without the need to open the desktop application, do a sync and re-upload to the Power BI service. Then take said report and embed it into my application.

    I know embedded can create reports without auth needed for integration with third party sites but I'm not seeing how the data sync would be handed off the desktop client to the Azure embedded instance. I also looked at report server and this looks just like embedded but with authentication.
