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

Pros
Collecting the data through SSIS packages from different sources and putting them all in one data repository is the most powerful thing. While others have this feature, they don't have the simplicity or ease of use when getting a resource and knowing everything about it.We are able to monitor daily jobs, so if there is anything that needs to be done then we can do it.The most valuable feature is the business intelligence (BI) part of it.The data transmissions between the data models is the most valuable feature.The most valuable feature of this solution is performance.One of the most important features is the ease of using MS SQL.The most valuable feature for me is querying.The most valuable features are the performance and usability.

The most valuable aspect of this solution is that the infrastructure is easy to understand.It can calculate data in detail. Before we could not calculate financial documents and accountant documents in detail, we could not do it at a document level but now we can. This is the most important feature. It also has predictive analysis memory.The most valuable feature is the dashboard.The solution is easier to maintain than traditional SAP products.From an ERP point of view and a functionality point of view, it works very well. The benefits are in that of financial costing and material management.Out of the box, this solution has a lot of standard features.The processes are the most valuable aspect of this solution.The most valuable feature is that it's robust.

Cons
I would like the tool to support different operating systems.If the database is large with a lot of columns then it is difficult to clean the data.This solution would be improved with an option for in-memory data analysis.The reporting for certain types of data needs to be improved.I think that the error messages need to be made more specific.I would like to see better visualization features.More tools to help designers should be included.In the future I would love to see a slightly better automation engine, just for the data integration layer, to make it slightly easier for end-users or junior developers to get involved in incremental updating.

Pricing would be a good improvement. A lot of customers think that it's very expensive and especially support is very expensive.Not a ten because it's expensive and its ecosystem is not very open.The dashboard should be simplified and made easier for exploration and decision making.The solution does occasionally get a few bugs, but this is typical for any product.In the next release, I would like to see their BI component introduced with a mobile version, as it is not currently present.Connecting multiple sources is a challenge because you have to go through a lot of different setups.I cannot integrate it with my other tools. It's not possible to do something in the predictive analysis. Mobile reporting is also not available.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Microsoft has an agreement with the government in our country, so our customers get their licensing costs from the Ministry. Whenever we work with any government, company, or government institute, which is mainly what we are doing, that license comes directly from the Ministry of Technology and Information.I think the program is well-priced compared to the other offerings that are out in the market.

This is an expensive solution and there are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

Overview

The traditional structured relational data warehouse was never designed to handle the volume of exponential data growth, the variety of semi-structured and unstructured data types, or the velocity of real time data processing. Microsoft's SQL Server data warehouse solution integrates your traditional data warehouse with non-relational data and it can handle data of all sizes and types, with real-time performance.

Streamline processes and support innovations with a single, trusted source for real-time insights. Based on SAP HANA, our next-generation data warehouse solution can help you capitalize on the full value of all your data from SAP applications or third-party solutions, as well as unstructured, geospatial, or Hadoop-based.
