We used it pretty heavily in gathering data, which goes to our VPs. They are able to base their next revenue planning based on this metric. So, it has been invaluable.The ability to connect to many different data sources is one of the key features. The other would then be the different ways in which that data can be visualized.R and automation services.One of the main features is integrated statistical analysis.Data discovery is very simple.

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.It could have more of a hold on big data. Manipulating big data on this solution complicates things. This needs to be improved.We did have some issues building the Microsoft blog.Powerpoints are not available in the report server.The report server feature is quite limited.It would be nice to use other connectors to link with the data.The DAX features need some improvement. It's not as easy as Excel. They need more DAX formulas.The reporting part of Microsoft BI is rather limited compared to other reporting tools.

We would like an easier way to get the product to the cloud. Right now, we have the on-premise version, and we would like to find a way to make it easier to migrate it over to the cloud.I would like more easy-to-implement analytical algorithms. At the moment they include things like forecasts and regressions. They need to add a lot more of these types of things to the product because not everyone is a data scientist.Print capability and trigger-based events.Compared to competitors, the UI is quite dated.The number of charts available out of the box in Spotfire can be enhanced.
