PowerView vs. PowerPivot vs. Power BI

PowerView vs. PowerPivot vs. Power BI…not to mention PowerPivot Models, Power BI Sites, Power Query, Power Map, Pivot Tables, Pivot Charts, Data Analysis Expressions (DAX) Language, Natural Language Search…

OK, I am lost!

Then I find out that some of these are in Excel 2010/2013, some are Add-Ins to Excel 2010/2013, some are in SQL Server Reporting Services 2012, some are in SharePoint 2010/2013, some will only work in SharePoint 2013, some are only in Office 365…ahh

What the hell Microsoft!!!

Finally an article that explains this in understandable terms…
