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.It should be easier to use when there are multiple system sources.The look is simple, and could be a little more professional.
