Working with reports using the cloud version of Power BI – Power BI Service – requires assigning a PBI license to each person, which can generate significant costs, especially when there are many people outside the organization.
Moreover, the company’s security policy may prevent granting guest access to people outside the organization, and creating separate reports for internal and external people generates additional workload and the need to reconcile data.
Our solution to these challenges is the Power BI Multitenant system. Thanks to our experience and know-how, we are able to implement such a solution in any company.
Power BI Multitenant, based on Microsoft technology – Power BI Embedded, allows companies to securely share data with their customers, business partners or suppliers, without the need to purchase additional Power BI licenses and create new reports.
The Power BI Multitenant service allows sharing dashboards with entities outside the organization using our .NET application operating in SSAS mode.
QBICO offers Power BI Multitenant as a service for a monthly fee, which consists of:

Power BI Multitenant finds application in various industries and business models. The solution may be useful for:
There are several basic ways to share reports with people outside the organization, but none of them is perfect.
|Guest account in organization+Premium Per Capacity||High costs|
|Guest account in organization+Power BI license in parent organization||People outside the organization may not have a Power BI license|
|Preparing a solution based on Power BI Embedded||High entry costs, difficult access to specialists with unique competencies|
|Sending a pbix file by email||Potential security risks, little user convenience. Solution difficult to apply in the case of large reports|
|Sending PDF files by email||Static reports without the possibility of interaction, potential laboriousness in converting reports to PDF|
If none of the above methods are satisfactory, we encourage you to contact us to present the Power BI Multitenant offer.
In the basic sales model, the costs associated with Power BI licenses depend on the number of users. In large organizations, it may happen that a large number of users use Power BI incidentally, or only consume content shared in reports. In such cases, the Power BI Multitenant solution will help reduce costs. Contact us to find out how much your organization can save.
Unaware users often send reports in pbix format by email, which carries the risk of a security/GDPR incident. A much better solution is to use the Power BI Multitenant tool.
