What is most valuable?

I think each component of the product has its own advantages, but I do not think I should explain every component and instead focus on one that stands out. One thing I have concluded through use is… more »

What needs improvement?

With the release of the 2019 version, I think Microsoft Stack has the capability for machine learning and in fact, it can now live in a Linux environment. I have had to deal exclusively with Microsoft… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Besides the standard licensing users have to pay additional fees for technical support. The default support I think is just the same as with other products and it has become industry standard to be… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

In comparing the Microsoft and Oracle products I think the main difference comes down to ease-of-use. I think the Oracle product track and the architecture is designed for people with less… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice to people considering this solution is that as a user and administrator you need to know the internal workings of the product. We can downplay that software by simply saying that it is just… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have experience working with business intelligence solutions and data science platforms. The majority of that experience is in working with is Microsoft Azure Stack and Oracle. Really my experience… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable part of the product is that it is a system. It has different tools for different services for different kinds of scenarios. It is a very rich tool and an integrated technology-rich platform. The total integration with the rest of Microsoft products is probably the most valuable… more »

What needs improvement?

In general, I am not really very satisfied with the tutorials that are out there. When Microsoft releases a new tool, technology — whatever it is — oftentimes it is not really very easy to get your hands on the insightful information and documentation, training courses, and other training materials… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have used other products like SAP or other third-party tools here and there. Most of my experience is with Microsoft Azure and I have not really considered working with other tools, platforms and solutions too much simply because Microsoft is best at integrating with their own products.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend and do recommend using this product for others who need it. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this product as an eight-out-of-ten.

What is most valuable?

Because we use Azure, it's built into Azure. We probably haven't been using it properly, so there's lots of bits and pieces to Microsoft Analytics. To be quite honest, we've never sat down and formulated a plan on how to use it to a hundred percent. We probably have used a bit of it at the moment. I like that it's integrated with other Azure products.

What needs improvement?

I think the biggest problem with the product is that it does a data ingest model, which is very expensive.

What other advice do I have?

If you're going to do it, do it seriously. Implement it straight away. Don't do it piecemeal like we've done. Get the best out of it as you can. The trouble is Microsoft has changed their licensing. It's an extremely expensive product now. We are currently paying $200,000 a year for all the different parts of the suite during an ingest model Microsoft now charges us $700,000 a year. They changed… more »

We are integrating services to collect data and this solution is used to analyze data, prepare results, and then generate reports.

The most valuable feature is database connectivity. This solution will connect to any database, you can combine databases, and you can create a cube or tabular model. This includes, for example, a relational model.

The flexibility of this solution needs to be improved because you cannot make changes at every one of the different steps.

I have been using this solution for five years.

This is a stable solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
