Microsoft BI Initial Setup

Gary Gonsalves
Consultant at a consultancy
The setup was straightforward for me because as part of an organization, I didn't have to set it up myself. It was set up via the organization, through the IT department, so it was pretty straightforward. View full review »
Accountant at a government
It was easy. The only thing I noticed was that it was so slow. It took a long time to download, but again, I think that was my connectivity. View full review »
Juanjo Gomez
IT Director at a manufacturing company with 5,001-10,000 employees
As the IT manager in my company, I oversaw the resources and the setup of the solution but I was not involved on the technical side. But I think that it was really easy. It was not complex to set up. My team did have to read a lot of technical documentation. We also contacted a company that knows this solution, one that has implemented it for other companies, consultancy-based. Still, I have installed more complex tools in my company. This was one of the easier tools to put into production in my company in the last four or five years. View full review »

Olumide Ibilaiye
Business Intelligence Developer at a financial services firm with 5,001-10,000 employees
It was straightforward. Very straightforward. You can just go to YouTube, somebody has done it before. Because it has GUI, just click, click, click, next, next, and you're done. And YouTube helped a lot in deploying projects: SSAS Projects, SSIS projects, and SSRS projects. View full review »

It's very, very easy to get started. The complexity is the typical complexity in deployment, in that you have to have people make decisions on who has rights to what data. As far as the implementation, it's quite easy. View full review »

IT Specialist at a wholesaler/distributor with 1-10 employees
In the beginning, it was a rather complex because all the documents are in English. If it is in French, it was really complex, so then we would have to read the English documents. That was the most difficult thing here. It made the product difficult to use, because of the language, so Microsoft did provide help. View full review »
