Microsoft BI Review

It is connected to every database: Whatever and wherever it is

What is our primary use case?

Its primary use case is for CIPs from the purchasing department. It performs perfectly. It is very quick and easy to use.

How has it helped my organization?

We approve it for use with SAP BI, so it has been more effective for our users and much cheaper. So, the costs are small and the benefits are high.

What is most valuable?

Its connection to every database: Whatever and wherever it is. 

It is easy to work with and very chic.

What needs improvement?

The look is simple, and could be a little more professional.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is very good. We have no problems.

We receive an update every month with new functions, so we are not missing anything.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good. It works for a large community just fine.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not needed to use technical support. We are able to do everything by ourselves. That is one of the main reasons that we like the product.

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

We have SAP BI working. It has cost us more than a million Euro, and it does not work. This was one of the reasons to change.

Power BI is very easy to use and much sleeker. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. 30 minutes, and it runs perfectly.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Power BI as the best working solution.

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: Usability of the solution.
