Well packaged and easy to figure out but needs better visualization

What is our primary use case?

In one particular case, we had reporting issues and we were sucking data off of a couple of different systems into a data monitor. You might call it a data rig now. Due to the fact that we did that, we were using the transformation pieces to pull it into that data monitoring, and put out some operational-type reports. The fun part about it was because we could do a lot with it and it didn't need necessarily another layer reports. It was pretty much encapsulated well already.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution's features are all just wrapped up in one nice easy package. I don't need a lot of toolsets to get everything I need done."
  • "It doesn't have quite the flexibility of a Tableau or something like that. Many users are more comfortable with Tableau and I'm not quite sure why that is right now, but it seems to be the case."

What other advice do I have?

I'm not sure which version of the solution we are currently using. We've updated it a few times over the years. I'd advise other users to just to be really clear on what you're trying to accomplish. You've got to make sure it's the right product for what you're trying to do. I'd rate the solution seven out of ten.

Enables you to embed visualisation and reports into your applications

What is our primary use case?

Usually, when dealing with business intelligence projects with big data, all customers have Office 365 but within these licenses, Microsoft BI is often included.

Pros and Cons

  • "It's a great tool for visualization data, and it's free for engineers."
  • "It is too slow. I hope in future it will be a comparable big data tool, such as, for example, Data Lake."

What other advice do I have?

Every month Microsoft puts in another update. We are likely to use Microsoft BI in future projects. Microsoft BI does not fit every business case, so for that reason, I would give it an eight out of 10.

Good reporting and analytics, scalable, and has responsive support

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of the solution is for management reporting and analytics across many different subject areas.

Pros and Cons

  • "This solution is the most scalable BI platform in the world."
  • "They need to do a better job In its ability to allow end users to produce their own reports, metrics, and self-service business intelligence."

What other advice do I have?

We have two ways of using this solution. We have an SSBI, which is self-service intelligence. We also have an enterprise-class, where we publish everything on the web, from tablets to phones, for our end-user base who are franchises. It is the best for large scale deployments, but you cannot become a MicroStrategy shop without having the right technical resources on the team. Don't even think about it, if you don't want to spend the money for the right person. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Great storyboarding and storytelling feature with an easy initial setup

Pros and Cons

  • "The initial setup is quite straightforward."
  • "The AI-based features could be further enhanced by the solution."

What other advice do I have?

I'm a user, not a vendor or a reseller. We use the enterprise version of the product. In terms of BI tools, I'd advise others that this is one of the best. It was easy to use once we had the initial training that is required. The features such as storytelling, AI based sessions, are great. I would recommend it to other companies for sure. On a scale from one to ten, I'd rate it at an eight.

Good visualizations, and it is easy to create dashboards, charts, and graphs

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use Tableau for reporting and visualization. Visualizations are important to us. My role is primarily concerned with financial planning and financial reporting.

Pros and Cons

  • "It is very easy to create dashboards, charts, and graphs."
  • "The Hyper Extract functionality is not as strong as that provided by Microsoft SQL."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
