In contrast to what we were using before I think that Power BI has given us more extensive results.
Microsoft BI is scalable.
Easy to create graphs and visualizations.
The stability seems to be very reliable.
The ability to collaborate and plan together is great.
Its user-friendliness is valuable. It is a product for end-users and not for IT, which is an advantage.
The solution has great reporting and forecasting capabilities.
In terms of features, everything is good. It is also stable and scalable.
The reporting features the solution offers are excellent.
The platform uses a lot of Java technologies so the performance and system-level management are tricky because it needs a lot of resources.
The solution is ideal for enterprise-level companies or corporations.
It is easy to use and visually very appealing. One thing that sets it apart is that it has got a great ETL tool. As compared to some of the other solutions, it is much easier to process data from other applications in MicroStrategy. That's why we prefer using it.
One feature which I have found to be very interesting is the Beast manager, where you can create calculated fields. They are shared in one common repository so someone else can use the same calculated fields; they don't have to rewrite or reinvent the APIs.
This solution allows you to input a wide range of file formats.
The product is a very good reporting tool and is very flexible. It allows for the users to get a scheduled report.

Currently, I am using SAP BO Enterprise and running on Oracle. I'm looking for a much less expensive solution. It's not enough to use MS SQL instead of Oracle. I'm still profiling the SAP BOE implementation, but would like to head towards a DWH implementation that users can report off. Various users have mentioned in passing: PowerBI, Qlik, Tableau. At this point, the only solid knowledge I have is that management want to get rid of SAP and Oracle. Any recommendations?
