To run more visual, analytical models, it is great. Leave the statistics to your other programs.

Microsoft Power BI

The Microsoft Power BI is a powerful tool for any kind of users and purposes, in it you can do basically anything you want. But its not all roses, to master this software you'll have to learn a lot. If you want to use it for simple tasks such as basic data visualizations its very easy, but for more complex problems it can get a little bit hairy.

Pros

Keen, a Chargify company

  • It has been great for configuring and representing data trends for our own company as well as our clients.
  • It is very helpful for viewing and understanding trends within our own datasets without being too overwhelming
  • The user interface is very streamlined and doesn't take too long to learn so there isn't a lot of time wasted.

Microsoft Power BI

  • Using features like Power Query, which is in itself like a tool like Excel, you can clean and preview data before using it for analysis purposes. If you have used Excel in the past, Power Query will, for the most part, be a cakewalk for you.
  • The predominant feature one comes to Power BI is the ability to create automated formidable dashboards that everyone refers to before or during meetings to encourage and substantiate decision-making.
  • If required, based on specific data points, reports are triggered automatically to certain people as well.

Cons

Keen, a Chargify company

  • Cost is a little much for something we could do in house, given, it would take us much longer
  • Would be better to be more compatible with other analytical software
  • Could improve on code editing capabilities
Shelby Bowden | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Power BI

  • Since it's a complex system, need a technical team or administrator to manage.
  • I don't like being locked out. Make it easier to stay log[ged] in and not fill in password.
  • SSO login would be huge! This would save a lot of time and improve security.

I think using Microsoft Power BI can be somewhat intimidating as you kind of get everything in one go and with lack of good tutorials or trainings within the system it could be difficult to navigate and that is probably a big limitations that doesn't allow more people to adopt the platform and thus improve their decision making.

I did not have a ton of interaction with the Power BI support team. When we ran into some minor issues my co-worker was the one who was working with support to get that resolved and get our questions answered. From his experience it seemed like the process went well and the support team was responsive and helpful.

Alternatives Considered

Keen, a Chargify company

They have minor similarities, so they are not easily comparable. Keen is one of a kind and does not have a great alternative. It just needs a little work and developers will be addicted to it.

Microsoft Power BI

[Microsoft] Power BI is practical and effective, like a hammer for a nail, it is easy to use and produces very quickly the results that in most cases are urgently required by clients (nice reports to share on the web). To start using [Microsoft] Power BI you need a business email address, with that you create an account in Power BI Service and in less than 1 hour you will have installed Power BI Desktop, a report will have been created and it will have been published on the web .

Return on Investment

No answers on this topic

Microsoft Power BI

  • Allowed for data dumps that we used for our weekly board reports
  • Was our main repository for all data, allowed us to combine from multiple sources
  • We had a lot of breaks in our coding, which ate up a lot of time for our engineers to be fixing the process rather than improving upon in
