We performed a comparison between Microsoft BI and Splunk Enterprise Security based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Microsoft, Tableau, Amazon and others in BI (Business Intelligence) Tools.
"What's most valuable in this tool is that it gives its users detailed error messages. It's a very stable data analytics tool, and it offers good scalability."
"It is useful for bringing visualization to data. It calculates counts, ratios, etc."
"Microsoft BI's most valuable features are the user interface, which is easy to use and light."
"It's a powerful platform."
"One of the most valuable aspects of this tool is its ease of use and the ability to easily share information with others."
"We find the solution offers good stability."
"The most valuable feature of Microsoft BI is its visualization and its ease of use."
"Power BI allows you to create user defined charts which is really useful."
"Splunk's advantage is its search capability. Its search is notably faster. With Splunk, I can search easily on keywords. That is great."
"The fact that Splunk is a platform and not just a SIEM solution is a key benefit."
"You can check up on security from the dashboards."
"The ability to ingest different log types from many different products in our environment is most valuable."
"I haven't had the chance to properly sink my teeth into Enterprise Security but so far I like that they added the MITRE ATT&CK features."
"The solution has made us more secure."
"The most valuable feature is the DSS, also known as SPL, because it allows users to script advanced queries with limited knowledge."
"Splunk Enterprise Security helped us with faster detection of threats."
"The performance of Microsoft BI could improve for large datasets and it would be beneficial to have more visualization features."
"From an improvement perspective, I think if the Power BI developers of that platform would really focus on being more detailed and specific on the error messages, it would help a lot of developers troubleshoot and maintain the report ECT or the dashboard ECT."
"Microsoft BI lacks some of the scheme features. It would be beneficial if there were a way to show how we move values in a different way."
"I would like for there to be some type of user manual that shows steps on how to navigate the solution."
"Most of the dashboarding tools have prebuilt graphs. So, you have to stick with them, unless you are going to use a third-party tool to create them, and then you are going to upload them to the BI tool. In Power BI, they started supporting this functionality and created a tool for that, but it isn't yet complete and mature. It is still exceeding the expectations and is better than most of the BI tools when it comes to creating custom graphs, but it needs more enhancement and simplification. It would be good to have a design tool provided by Power BI to design the graphs that we want and set the figures that we want on them."
"Things can slow down if you create too many pages."
"The solution's documentation needs improvement."
"The DAX in Microsoft BI is quite difficult."
"It takes time to train people."

"Given the ever-increasing number of threats, I would like Splunk to update its threat signatures more frequently."
". Having a trial version or more training on Splunk would be helpful."
"There can be a bit of complexity around some fields during the initial setup."
"We will receive alerts only for the administrators and deployment servers, but not for all servers."
"The analytics of Splunk could be improved."

Reviews from Real Users
Microsoft BI stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its integration options and its data analytics capabilities.
Tariq R., an operations & BI analyst at American Hospital Dubai, writes, “Power BI is a complete ecosystem. It has an integrated ETL tool and good connectivity with applications such as Office 365 and SQL. Power BI supports the DAX and Power Query M languages. These languages are making Power BI very strong in data analytics, and you can do many types of analysis. ”
