Microsoft Power BI: "Power BI: bringing life to your disparate data"

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Power BI is being used to build dashboards and reports. It is used mainly by the marketing department as far as I know but I really wouldn't be surprised that it is being used in other departments. It allows us to have an insight into our business through the visual representation of our data. Wi...

      IBM Cognos is well suited when you are implementing with compatible software like Costpoint and other Deltek products, this will lead to great integration and result in the wonderful presentation of data for your reporting requirement. However, IBM Cognos is not well suited when being implemented...

        Power BI For Office 365 Review: "Powerful, easy to use, no-nonsense visualization"

        If you're already using Office 365, Power BI for O365 is an easy choice. Start playing around with the free version and then easily add individual Pro licenses with little risk. However, if you anticipate using this with many users, it can get expensive quickly.

          I think that Birst *can* become a good option for mid-sized companies for whom large scale BI implementations like Cognos or MicroStrategies are not practical, or in our case, even relevant, but it can be frustrating for those who have a high level of technical experience with data warehouse deve...

            Tableau Server is easy to share creative control. The software doesn't require any special networking knowledge to create interactive dashboards across the organization. The alerts and security take a bit more time (especially the security), but nothing outrageous. It's really easy to collaborate...
