For developers, it is easy to embed a Power BI report into a form in a model driven app by tweaking form Xml. Power BI is a self analytics tool so that end users/ business users can easily build report and dashboards. What if we have a tool for business users which helps to embed Power BI reports easily into model driven apps without tweaking form Xml. Thanks to Ivan Ficko for building Power BI Embedder .
