Will Power BI replace Excel?
Power BI is not a replacement for Excel, but an alternative solution that makes it easy to create dashboards, visualize data, and collaborate with other users.

Power BI can work in tandem with your SQL Reporting Services depending on your reporting needs. Power BI is an interactive visualization reporting tool and not a transactional reporting tool. SSRS focuses on delivering paginated reports; however, Power BI Premium does offer the ability to create paginated reports that can replace many types of SQL Reporting Services reports.
