Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"We have a premium Power BI license in-house that's quite an expensive license. It's $10 a month for four users and then I think 35,000 at the premium rate.""It is somewhere in the middle in terms of price. Licensing is quite clear.""Its cost seems to be unreasonable if you have many users, but for a lesser number of users, it is reasonable. It is $10 per month. Clients easily accept this option, so they must think it is reasonable. It is quite cheap as compared to other tools, such as Tableau. One of the best things about this solution is that it has a trial version.""Once the trial period for the BI service is over, the cost is approximately $10 USD per user, per month, so it's quite reasonable.""The pricing is very reasonable compared to any other tool.""Microsoft BI is not very cheap. A premium license costs roughly 5,000 euros a month.""This product offers good value for the money.""Microsoft BI is free for the personal edition, but there is also a paid-for professional version."
