can't signup - "Your IT department has turned off signup for Microsoft BI."

 

Hello dear community,

 

i wanted to ask which requirements need to be aquired to implement the Power BI tool in an organisation.

Is it possible with Office Home and Business 2016 or only with Office 365?

 

The user gets following error message at signup:

 

Sorry...
We can't finish signing you up.

Your IT department has turned off signup for Microsoft BI.

Contact them to complete signup.

 

 

The company is using a .de E-Mail Adress (Exchange)

 

Thanks for your help!

I believe Power BI is configured to use the Office 365 environment only. It operates on the concept of a tenant which is associated to an organization.

 

If your IT organization doesn't have an O365 tenant, you can see if your IT organization can apply for a trial tenant as detailed in this video by @GuyInACube3 Steps to Get a Power BI Test Tenant
