Microsoft BI Review

Data abstracting and good reporting features are keys for us

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for data prediction. We use our predictive model index, and then express the data to Power BI.

What is most valuable?

It's user-friendly and provides data abstracting capabilities. We are also able to share reports with our colleagues very easily.

What needs improvement?

The DAX features need some improvement. It's not as easy as Excel. They need more DAX formulas.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is good.

How was the initial setup?

The setup was straightforward.

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

The most important criterion for me, when selecting a vendor, is that the product is cost-effective.

What other advice do I have?

It depends on how you're going to use the reports, but when looking into this product or similar solutions, check the security side of things. If you don't want to share information with everyone, how does it deal with that?

So far, it's one of the best reporting tools I've found. They are improving the product every month. I would rate it at eight out of 10. The two missing points are to see what comes out in the future.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
