Pros

I like the way that the dashboards can be created and you can import data from anywhere (File, API etc)

Its a huge learning curve to understand how to manipulate the data and what data sets go into which box to be displayed correctly on the screen.

Customer Support

Value for Money

Pros

The amount of different types of data that can be integrated and analyzed makes this an extremely powerful tool. Businesses from small to large can integrate essentially any data stored digitally for cross reference, analysis, and visualization. Our organization has realized new avenues of business analytics with the options available in Power BI. Dashboards have allowed a more free flow of processed information and has reduced the need for some in-person exchange of the same information (meetings, status calls, etc.). C-suite engagement with Power BI dashboards have provided new strategic opportunities by allowing executives to focus more and spend less time

Cons

Power BI has a decided learning curve and can be daunting for new users. There are, in many cases, lots of ways to do the same thing and learning the most efficient use of the interface and the tools at your disposal can take some time.

Used Jet Reports in the past, Power BI blows it out of the water. (and a fraction of the price)

Pros

Incredibly powerful platform, and it's relatively cheap. Waay cheaper than the old model when you had a server on premise.

Cons

Recurring monthly cost per user. On-Prem may have been cheaper for enterprise...but for small businesses, the per user cost is great.

It is possible to make incredibly intricate and detailed reports and visuals using this software, making data highly accessible for the people looking at it.

In general what I like about Power BI is that it makes use of the tools that I already know as Excel and SQL Server, and it is integrated into the Microsoft enterprise suite.

Pros

For any executive it is always important to have the information in the moment when it is needed. Power BI helps you to achieve this and easily connects to the data repository, the system already includes a variety of informative graphics that help to present the information of a very visual way In addition the system allows you to delve into the data to see the detail of the origin.

Cons

This tool is so powerful that I can not think of any disadvantage in its use, but if I had to say something it is that you have to be very careful in the base of the information so that the reports that the system transmits are reliable, if the information has problems that is reflected in the reports that the system gives you.

If you want to understand in what direction to move your business, to be always up to date, to receive data from anywhere in the world and from any device MS Power BI definitely your choice.

Pros

You can access your data from anywhere in the world from any device and always keep abreast of your business.
Great product from Microsoft. Easily connects to a large number of systems, can combine data from different sources. A large number of built-in reports and dashboards, informative charts that give a visual representation of your data. You can drill down into your data, publish your reports online, pleased with the opportunity to cost reports offline, followed by their publication. Deep integration with MS Office.

Cons

Really it is very difficult to distinguish what the cons on the background of a very large number of advantages. The only thing you will have to spend the time and effort is of course learning without which I think can not do everywhere, no matter what product started studying. The only sad thing is that to learn MS Power BI is possible only using your work account from Microsoft.

Pros

Creates good reports, access to multiple data locations, and easily deployed. Can be automated for corporate reports.

Cons

Not reliable - in the sense that this or crystal reports is typically setup - you are using this as a bridge to fix a badly setup database, needing to pull data from multiple locations, or one that doesn't have good reporting built in. The interface is too busy and hard to navigate when you just want to pull some data. Typically need a couple people dedicated to creating reports in power BI, for anything really on demand, easier to export raw data and use excel.

I could make dashboards much quicker and more intuitively than with Excel. Always a plus for someone just beginning to get their feet wet with data visualization.

Pros

I was able to integrate it into a fairly outdated Microsoft office suite, so that was really useful for me. My organization uses a lot of legacy software for security purposes, so it was nice to have a Business intelligence tool that can be easily deployed "out of the box", as opposed to some newer tools. I was fairly easily able to generate reports, pair it with an ETL tool that I was using, and pretty much speed up a few reporting processes.

Pros

It's features are extremely robust and has some of the best integration for data warehousing of any "off the shelf" tools. I think Power BI is great for medium scale companies and ventures because there's a ton of support from Microsoft and third party companies as well. Most large organizations, in my experience, should have enough staff with Power BI knowledge to call on as business experts.

Cons

I think some aspects are a bit counter-intuitive to use. Power BI's does help to make users more comfortable with it though. I also think that the heavy reliance on cloud services makes it a bit harder to integrate some legacy systems that aren't well configured into the BI environment.

This is a home run for Microsoft. Pull data from multiple sources (Read--ANY source) and put it into a rich, graph presentation on the fly. It is fairly easy to use, easy to organize data and their customer support is responsive as all get out. I love this software.

The tool is part of the Microsoft suite for education which is helpful. But note that it takes a long time to setup and is not necessarily user friendly. It helps greatly to have a MS advisor or trainer involved (which costs money) but can save weeks of headache.

Like most tools it has limitations, but some of the notable limits our school has experienced involve who can see what (permissions), who can input what, who can analyze what, etc. As well, extracting the spurious or non-correlated variables can sometimes be challenging even if you know what you want to take out.

Pros

The greatest thing of Power BI, that it has Power Query, therefore, you can play with your data however you want. The limits are the sky in Power BI. It uses DAX language, which is an advantage for any Excel user. What I really like about it that you can ALMOST do anything you do in Excel.

Cons

Lack of support, or good documentations for their DAX language. It's very difficult to do complicated calculations in there. Sharing is still not good enough, unless you want to share it within your organization.

Pros

It's easy to use, better than biggest alternatives (I've tested Qlik and TableAu) and I've chosen Power BI

Cons

There need some expertise with other Microsoft Office products, and a little programming skills / SQL
