Welcome to the March 2022 update. We are happy to announce a couple new features this month! How about error bars for line charts and dynamic format strings support for all chart elements? Also, we have some updates to the Azure Maps visual and Sensitivity labels, datasets hub and Power BI Goals. There is more to explore, please read on.
Today, we’re happy to announce significant performance improvements to backup and restore operations. Our benchmark tests with 1GB, 5GB, and 10GB datasets show backups can now be completed up to 22 times faster than before, and the time required for restore operations can also be reduced by more than 30%.
I’m happy to announce a new method that allows a much larger number of customer tenants per one service principal by introducing a service principal “child” named service principal profile. Each service principal profile can administer a customer tenant, and the number of profiles per service principal can reach hundreds of thousands.
Today we’re announcing that for the 15th consecutive year1 Microsoft has been positioned as a Leader in the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms. We’ve also been positioned furthest to the right for Completeness of Vision and highest in the Ability to Execute within the Leaders quadrant for the 4th consecutive year.
We are happy to announce that we have just released the March update for the On-premises data gateway (version 3000.118.2)
We are excited to announce improvements to the Power BI activity logs that would help organizations gain insights on users connecting to Power BI datasets from Excel. With these improvements, admins can now track the usage of Power BI datasets in Excel, helping organizations improve data governance or fulfill regulatory compliance.
