Hi Jorg,

You wrote: "One of the new possibilities will be the integration of Reporting Services and Power BI. So why still integrate with SharePoint?"

Well, one of the reasons to still integrate with SharePoint is because some companies are still not ready to leave their on premises SharePoint and move to the cloud (Power BI in this case).

It is difficult to convince a potential client to use SharePoint and SSRS when the future is uncertain.

Do you have any idea about what to do in that case?

If reporting services 2016 will support pbix file type in the reporting catalog.  Then why would we not see this with SharePoint Integrated mode?  I understand the pbix files contain more than just a report definition but if works in ssrs native how about in integrated?
