Microsoft BI Scalability Issues

Principal Business Intelligence Analyst at a logistics company with 1,001-5,000 employees

We don't have that experience yet. We still don't know how it is to deploy it in larger scales. So, that's my concern, but I haven't seen the scalability issues at our clients. View full review »

Sometimes, the scalability becomes an issue; instead of horizontal scaling, we always need vertical scaling. View full review »

Our solutions are not for very many people, say 25 users. For them, it works very well. I don't know how it works with more users than that. View full review »

Yes, SSRS reporting portal cannot run on tablets, iPads and all other mobile devices. But SQL 2016 has been shipped with this capability. View full review »
