Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Because this solution is very easy, and very visual, you can have results in minutes.""The uploading of information is very easy, as you just use an Excel sheet to start work right away and obtain the benefits of Power BI.""There was a lot of manual work involved with Excel, whereas once we moved on to Microsoft Power BI, it was a cleaner dashboard and it was faster too.""The feature I find most valuable is the ability to publish Power Bi reports, using an embedded link, directly onto a website.""If you are not very technical this tool could be very useful.""I like the downloadable visualizations a lot. I think that they give the user a very nice starting point in creating awesome dashboards, with the right way to tell their data story.""This solution has improved our ability in making decisions and explaining data.""It has provided customer purchase patterns and great visualization."

"Data preparation is fantastic and fast. We were able to use multiple data sources and prepare the data quickly.""The best feature may be data flow, which is used to prepare and clean data.""It's really an enterprise solution. It has a dashboard, like standard dashboarding functionality. It also has reporting capabilities for producing pixel-perfect reports, bursting large volumes of a document if you need to. It has interactive data discovery functionality, which you would use to explore your data, bring your own data, and merge it with maybe the data from an enterprise data warehouse to get new insights from the pre-existing data. It has machine learning embedded in the solution. If you're new to machine learning, it's a really good way to get into it, because it's all within this platform, and it's really easy to use.""The features that I find to be the most valuable are the BAS (Business Analytics), the Narrate feature, and the auto-visualization.""The AI/ML enablement is useful, as many reporting tools do not offer machine learning models as of now, without writing customized code."

Cons
"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.""I would like to see the product offer more graphics to impact different audiences.""I think because I'm moving more into RPA, I'd definitely like to see integration across the RPA, Power BI, or Tableau platforms, because that integration could then make automation and mundane reporting much faster.""I would like to see Machine Learning for Power Bi Pro users or an intermediate license to enable Machine Learning if you don't have access to a Premium account.""Adding paginated reports to this tool could be of great help for users who want to move away from SSRS.""Some kind of expression wizard, where the user can build a complex expression without any knowledge of DAX, can be a good addition to the product.""We would like to have better SQL support for queries.""This solution needs integration with SAS and more deep analysis functionality."

"One area of improvement is associated with more connectors needing to be added such as Microsoft OneDrive, Teradata and a few others. I think the list is limited to the top ones now.""The product should be improved in terms of connectors; right now the top twenty connectors are available, but OneDrive and Teradata are missing.""As with most BI tools, the visualizations can be made much nicer. Currently, it has standard visualizations. They've been adding new visualizations, but we see animated visualizations from other vendors. It would be nice to have similar visualizations, such as the swarming visualizations, which are fairly new and very popular at the moment. I haven't seen that with Oracle. That would be nice.""Sharing dataflows is not possible at this time, and the custom chart functionality is not available.""At this time, dataflows cannot be shared, but I think that this should be enhanced."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It is reasonably priced.""I very much recommend the free trial mode.""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."

"Bottom line, the cost is really, really cheap compared to other solutions. Oracle has made a huge effort on the pricing.""The price is reasonable; it's quite a bit lower than Tableau and Spotfire."
