We used ClicData dashboards in a somewhat unorthodox way: we used "Indicators", or icons within tables to represent data, and the results looked great. The ability to integrate 3rd party HTML into dashboards was valuable (although Clic Data correctly warns that response time may suffer).The ability to start small and release dashboards incrementally suited our needs very well. We also valued the responsive account team getting us quickly pointed in the right direction.

Microsoft Power BI

I would definately recommend [Microsoft] Power BI, its an amazing product, despite of the cons, the product is still remarkable and unique in the values that it provides.If you have scattered data left undiscovered, or need solid reporting and analytics, or even just simply want to impress your management with detailed, beautiful and organized reports that are automatically refreshed with fresh content, Power BI is absolutely the tool to go for.It can import data from an overwhelming amount of sources, such as Excel, SQL Server, Adobe Analytics, Google Analytics, Sales Force, MySQL, Amazon Redshift and many others, and it allows you to quickly and easily build and publish beautiful reports that always impresses the executives and management.[Microsoft] Power BI is one of a few products that I would recommend to literally anyone who uses a computer, there is always a use case for Power BI, especially the desktop version, the moment you create your first report you realize how much time and effort it saves and how much insights it gives on your data, personally, Power BI is an essential part of my work and I truly enjoy building reports and gathering/transforming data using it.

Pros

ClicData

  • Dashboards
  • Reports
  • Analysis
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

ClicData

  • Some of the documentation for their advanced functions is lacking.
  • Getting your data to display in the manner that you expect can sometimes have a workaround you need to jump through.
Anonymous | 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.

It always works, and once you have the hang of it, it's easy to use. Visualizes data, generates reports, and makes my life easier. That's enough for me to recommend it. Be sure to watch some videos and spend time creating custom templates to make your life easier once it's up and running.

It is a great product, but unless you already have a lot of experience with similar software it can be a little difficult to really get going in using the software. Once you get the hang of the UI and the data importing/sync, it is pretty simple to build the reports you need and to manage and update those reports.

We've only needed support a couple times in the beginning as we were learning the system and how to display our data in interesting ways. Every time we reached out we got very detailed responses and were connected to someone that you could tell was very interested in making sure we were happy with how things were going.

Microsoft's support is great most times, they will respond fast and make everything to come to a solution. Also, the software is very well documented, so many times there is no need to contact the support because the documentation may have a solution right away

Alternatives Considered

ClicData

We chose ClicData over some other options because it was cost-effective and relatively easy to implement. It didn't require a server to set-up or manage which was nice.

[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

ClicData

  • Better decisions
  • Saves time on reports
  • Easier communication with stakeholders
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

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
