Microsoft BI Review

It is stable and provides a quick view of the most important indicators, but its setup and support should be better

What is our primary use case?

We have integrated this solution into the software that we created for a client specifically for reports and data consumption. It is a hybrid infrastructure project with hybrid integration. It has a lot of reports executed or created from the cloud.

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped us to have a really quick view of the most important indicators of the operational issues of our platform. It has enabled collaboration between different operational levels in the company.

What is most valuable?

The use of graphics to show and view the data indicators is the most valuable feature. It is also very stable.

What needs improvement?

Its setup and support should be improved. We would like to see more material for developers that provides clear explanations about how we can do data mining by using Microsoft BI. It would also be good if we can connect a feature to other customized machine learning solutions.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It has good stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We haven't used it a lot, but it seems good so far. We have only three users. We may include two or three more users to the platform.

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is bad. I didn't like the technical support of Microsoft.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We also use Oracle and Tableau.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was not complex, but we would like a more agile process. The initial deployment took about two months. The platform that we created was very robust.

What about the implementation team?

We are a reseller of the solution. We did the deployment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We were thinking of integrating Tableau instead of Microsoft BI, but the client chose Microsoft BI.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Microsoft BI a seven out of ten.
