Key components of the Power BI ecosystem comprise:
Power BI Desktop: The Windows desktop-based application for PCs and desktops, primarily for designing and publishing reports to the Service.
Power BI Service: The SaaS-based (software as a service) online service. This was formerly known as Power BI for Office 365, now referred to as PowerBI.com, or simply Power BI.
Power BI Mobile Apps: The Power BI Mobile apps for Android and iOS devices, as well as for Windows phones and tablets.
Power BI Gateway: Gateways are used to sync external data in and out of Power BI and are required for automated refreshes. In Enterprise mode, can also be used by Power Automate (previously called Flows) and PowerApps in Office 365.
Power BI Embedded: Power BI REST API can be used to build dashboards and reports into the custom applications that serves Power BI users, as well as non-Power BI users.
Power BI Report Server: An on-premises Power BI reporting solution for companies that won't or can't store data in the cloud-based Power BI Service.
Power BI Premium: Capacity-based offering that includes flexibility to publish reports broadly across an enterprise, without requiring recipients to be licensed individually per user. Greater scale and performance than shared capacity in the Power BI Service
Power BI Visuals Marketplace: A marketplace of custom visuals and R-powered visuals.
Power BI Dataflow: A Power Query implementation in the cloud that can be used for data transformations to make a common Power BI Dataset that can be made available for several report developers through Microsoft's Common Data Service. It can be used as an alternative to for example doing transformations in SSAS, and may ensure that several report developers use data that has been transformed in a similar way.
Power BI Dataset: A Power BI Dataset can work as a collection of data for use in Power BI reports, and can either be connected to or imported into a Power BI Report. A Dataset can be connected to and get its source data through one or more Dataflows.
Power Query: It can be used to search, access, and transform public and/ or internal data sources.
Power Pivot: It is used in data modeling for in-memory analytics.
Power View: You can analyze, visualize and display data as an interactive data visualization using Power View.
Power Map: It brings data to life with interactive geographical visualization.
Power BI Service: You can share data views and workbooks which are refresh-able from on-premises and cloud based data sources.
Power BI Q&A: Ask questions and get immediate answers with natural language query.
Data Management Gateway: By using this component you get periodic data refreshers, expose tables and view data feeds.
Data Catalog: User can easily discover and reuse queries using Data Catalog. Metadata can be facilitated for search functionality.
