Microsoft 365 Business Review

Good integration between Power BI and SQL, and good scalability

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for business intelligence.

What is most valuable?

The Power BI environment and the integration between Power BI and SQL are the solution's most valuable features. The integration between products is great.

What needs improvement?

The solution's licensing framework needs improvement.

The integration of the SQL server development environment is a little bit difficult to handle. They should work to make this easier.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for two years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is very scalable, but it gets more expensive as you grow.

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't really contacted technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. We're working with a complex environment, so before we implemented it we tested it with a prototype and in pilot environments. You only need two people for maintenance.

What about the implementation team?

We had our own internal team implement the solution. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is quite expensive and gets more expensive if you have to scale.

What other advice do I have?

We use both the cloud and on-premises deployment models.

I'd recommend the product. I'd rate it nine out of ten.
