We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Its price is fair."
"It is not cost-effective. It is expensive."
"I have always found SAP BI to be expensive. It is expensive even when you compare SAP BI Cloud with Microsoft Power BI. Power BI is probably around $9.99 per month, and the cheapest SAP BI is around $20, which is double. In terms of price, Power BI is definitely a lot better. If you have budget issues, you may want to go for Power BI."
