"We have now the ability to create interactive and complex reports without the need for software developers and code."
"Power BI is more powerful than other tools because it is new for us. Each new version has more capabilities, and we're expecting AI and ML features in the next version."
"The reports are easy to create."
"ou can pull reports, visualize them in real-time, and connect them to a variety of other data sources."
"The most valuable features of Microsoft BI are the variety of possibilities to connect to various data sources. The visualizations are easily done, have useful rollover functions, and there are continuous updates being made to the system. You can benefit from the various improvements."
"The capability to add custom visuals and create Power BI apps. You can package datasets, synchronization details, and dashboards into a single app."
"It's pretty easy to set up the product."
"We have a lot of servers and applications from which we want reports, and it allows us to create reports from an SQL source or some other source."
"It gives us, the ability to do a lot of analysis quickly, similar to ad hoc analysis."
"I cannot select a visualization and see what filters are connected to it."
"The integration in Microsoft BI could improve for other solutions, such as Oracle DB and PostgresSQL. Additionally, the reporting from the databases to Microsoft BI should be in real-time and the overall performance could be better."
"The only concern I have faced with Microsoft BI is the time it takes to find out an issue and rectify it."
"The initial installation is difficult."
"It's not really complicated, but I didn't find the things I was looking for. The ones I used to work with within Dash are more open, and there are more choices. But with Power BI, there are only limited types of plots that I can use. For example, when I wanted to put the plots in Power BI, there was no extendable space. You have a limited page where you can place a maximum of three plots in that, and you can't do more than that on a single page. You have to create a new page, a different page for that. That made it a bit annoying, and the filtering part is limited, with basic functions. If you want to make custom filtering or custom functions, you can't do that."
"Its price could be better. Its licensing cost is very high."
"Integration with products that are not Microsoft could be more improved."
"The default parameters of the prompt could be improved by including a dynamic option."
"I would like for there to be some type of user manual that shows steps on how to navigate the solution."
