Microsoft BI Review

A comprehensive source for visualizations and analytics

What is our primary use case?

I primarily use this for creating dashboards and reports for the oil and gas industry.

What is most valuable?

Power BI is always updating. I receive multi mail from Power BI with new visualizations, new analytics, new webinars and I'm going to Microsoft here locally in order to have a updated presentation about the new features of Power BI. For me it's very versatile. I can publish on my iPad. I have a Power BI application in order to manage the visualization of my report and my dashboard. Also I can speak to Power BI and ask about production and Q&A. But, I don't have compilation with other tools yet. For me, Power BI is the best.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a feature that connects with a Machine Learning platform like a RapidMiner or Azure Machine Learning Studio. It would be great to have a Machine Learning application link to connect. 

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward. We had no problems with implementation.

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

The pricing is fine for our company. It is reasonably priced.

What other advice do I have?

Because this solution is very easy, and very visual, you can have results in minutes.
