Power BI is quite possibly one of the most exciting Microsoft services today, frequently in the news, growing its user base very rapidly, and making waves across the industry. The Administration, Governance, & Performance team drives fundamental improvements to core Power BI components. This work is designed to ensure that customers experience exceptionally fast service interactions and can efficiently manage Power BI for their organization.

We rely on numerous Azure technologies like Service Fabric, SQL Azure, REDIS cache, Service Bus, API Management, blob storage, Document DB, Azure Data Lake, Kusto, containers, etc. We are building and expanding a world-class service that combines big data, mission critical services, and real-time insights. This combination makes the area among the most cutting-edge across the entire industry!

Engineers collaborate across teams to enable new customer features that are scalable, manageable, and performant.
