New Power BI Premium per user licensing option

Today, organisations using Power BI need to license all users who publish shared content with Power BI Pro licences, and then choose to license the consumers of that content with further Power BI Pro licences or subscribe to Power BI Premium which is licensed on a capacity basis.

At the September 2020 Ignite conference Microsoft announced a new Power BI Premium per user licensing option. This will include all the features of Power BI Pro as well as other capabilities only available in Premium today. 

The public preview is planned to start in early November 2020 when the licence will be free, and GA is expected in Spring 2021 at a price to be announced.
