Do we need to pay for Power BI and Office 365 E3?

One early confusion with Power BI licensing was whether you needed to pay for the Office 365 E3 licence at €20.00 a month and also the Power BI license at €32.70 ?

Well it does look like you can just buy the Power BI license and this does actually include a full license to use SharePoint online to store documents, so if you have also paid for the E3 license you are paying twice for the same thing WRT SharePoint online.

Of course one major caveat – presently some of the Power BI features like Q+A synonyms are mainly available if you have Office 365 as opposed to office 2013, so there is a “better together story” for the moment.
