Moreover,This feature provides recommendations on how to improve report performance, such as optimizing visualizations or reducing the number of data points displayed. Smart Diagnostics also provides insights into data quality issues, such as missing or invalid data.

5. Azure Synapse Analytics Integration

Power BI consists of added integration with Azure Synapse Analytics (ASAI). ASAI is a cloud-based analytics service that enables users to analyze large amounts of data quickly. With this integration, you can connect to your Azure Synapse Analytics workspace directly from Power Platform. It helps you create reports, and visualizations based on the stored data in Azure Synapse Analytics.
