Microsoft
We would have many technical issues and glitches with previous similar providers but found that Azure Analysis Services can simply handle our workload and memory better. I remember we lost an account due to cloud issues not fully saving or corrupting some files. Granted, this is rare with any cloud but haven't had that issue with the same load of memory with Azure Analysis Services.

iDashboards
iDashboards is well suited for an office environment or organization with fewer personnel and resources. Its efficiency allows for less "man" hours. In terms of selection, the primary key question during process was cost, great tech support service, and efficiency. About where it may be less appropriate, it will be an office where information production, consumption, and dissemination is not a priority

iDashboards
iDashboards are fairly logical and easy to use once you get started. I have taught myself most of what I know on my own, by taking webinars, reading through all the knowledge base, and doing the tutorials. Expertise is needed to do some of the data manipulation, but most graphs are simple to make.
