437,827 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Tools like the BI and SAS are excellent.
It is not a pricey product compared to other data warehouse solutions.
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.
A robust and efficient product.
It provides us with proof of data, we can centralize all of the information, check it, and then provide the information to our users.
It's an excellent over-all tool for managers to analyze their business.
The security and audit procedures are the most valuable features.
We find the cost of the solution to be a little high.
It could be made more user-friendly for business users which would increase the user base.
They need to incorporate a machine learning engine.
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.
Design and modeling could be simplified.
It is difficult when your native language is not English. It is difficult for us to explain our issue and also difficult for the technical team to explain a resolution to us.
The program is difficult to learn to use
I think more integration with other applications would be perfect.
Pricing and Cost Advice
All the features that we use do not require any additional subscription or yearly fees.
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.
Pricing is based on the number of user IDs and tyhe user ID works across a suite of products.
