Barry Flanagan If you want to learn more about how NSX can provide Micro-segmentation with WS1 and Airwatch, read Chris Campbell's blog here - http://blogs.air-watch.com/2016/02/explore-next-generation-mobile-security-vmware-nsx-airwatch/#.V-0wuju7wd4
Dan Dover Yes, is Power BI supported? for desktop and online.
Matt Lesak <font color='green'>#Dan Supported from SSO perspective?</font>
Dan Dover Yes, for SSO.
