Topic Abstract: Peter describes and demonstrates the four Power BI Desktop modes. He will also provide guidance in helping you choose the appropriate mode for your project.

Power BI Desktop is a versatile tool that can be used for modeling and reporting. When a model already exists, the tool can be used to simply develop a report which sources the model. However, when a model is required, it provides three development choices: Import, DirectQuery and Composite (in preview).
