Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • I love how smart this tool is. Power BI makes it easy to run queries and it’s very easy to create charts and reports.

  • This is a great product. My department uses the Power BI tool to analyze our key metrics, it is better than taking screen shots of Excel, the software is great at display Information and loads faster

  • Cons

  • While it is easy to get started, really mastering the program can take some time and trial-and-error. It can be frustrating at times to get it to do exactly what you want it to do.

  • it's not very easy to setup and prepare dashboards sometimes, but it is understandable due to the kind of work it does. It just makes things a bit annoying to get ready sometimes.

  • Pros

  • Strong Technology, Great Support. Very easy self service capabilities enabling 3rd Gen BI

  • Easy and powerful software to drive the company on a daily basis

  • Cons

  • Extension support leaves a lot to be desired, however, native functionality is increasing every new release.

  • It's billed as a drag and drop product but you need to be pretty good at scripting to do some basic things
