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.

It is reasonably priced.No comment on pricing.It is a cheap solution for our needs.No comment.It is free.It is part of our Office 365 license.The costs are small and the benefits are high.The Report Server is pretty expensive on-premise. But as long companies are happy to use the cloud version, that's very cost effective.

I would recommend looking at your usage and whether the Zoho One license model would work for your organisation. It is very cost effective if you use other Zoho tools.An exact ROI is hard to calculate. However, we have definitely made sales that would have been much harder, or unlikely, as a result of the speed with which we were able to prepare comprehensive analysis.
