Cons
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.

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.
