Datorama

Datorama is well suited for marketing teams that do not have a data services department that can manually pull and aggregate data. If your team lacks the analytical edge then Datorama is perfect to easily showcase data and KPIs from numerous channels. This will cut the time you spend on reports in half for sure!

Microsoft Power BI

Power BI is great for reporting of any type. The dashboards I create for my executive team are crisp and easy to understand. I often get complements on it, and suggestions on what other reports or data could benefit from Power BI. Power BI is still dependent on data sources, so if my data source connections break, then the report is no good. This isn't something that you can create and forget. It needs eyes on it to ensure the data is correct

Pros

Datorama

  • Data Visualization: Data can easily be viewed in the Dashboard, where you can pull quick insights & easily understand them.
  • Report Customization: The platform allows for easy customization of reports, with a variety of metrics that can be pulled from any data source/ad server.
  • Reporting Templates: Going along with the above, you can also save custom reports as templates to use in the future.

Microsoft Power BI

  • Engaging dashboard displays with drag and drop modules to convey data in a meaningful ways.
  • Familiar Microsoft "Ribbon" type interface that creates an integral feel with the rest of the Microsoft suite of products.
  • Built-in mobile optimization window and associated Mobile applications that allow viewing from any location connected to the server.

Cons

Datorama

  • The dashboards could use more interactivity, especially for lower-level users. Simple filters can be added to dashboards, but still lag behind the abilities of other BI tools.
  • The filtering logic for data within the dashboards could be more robust. We've run into use cases where it's difficult to include or exclude specific data when needed.

Microsoft Power BI

  • It is such a powerful system that it can come across as intimidating for some without some Excel knowledge
  • I'm not a database analyst or administrator, so calling the data in can be difficult (not necessary the fault of the software, but something that could be difficult for teams without someone with database knowledge)
  • It can come across as confusing, when there is both a local Power BI and online Power BI components. They don't necessarily do the same functions. You'll definitely want to know how to use the online version as this is how you'll publish and share the results of your findings, but the local one has a lot of capabilities that don't appear to be directly available in the online version (and if so, it's not immediately apparent).

PBI is very easy to use because of its similarity with power pivot and excel. DAX is the basic foundation language to be mastered to quickly build reports. Custom measures have been introduce to write instant DAX functions (But doesnt work all the time and need a understanding of DAX to debug). Easy to chart multiple charts and also third party charts

Alternatives Considered

Datorama

I have had the chance to use Tableau and Datorama over the last 4 years. I think that Datorama is much more user friendly and easier to create visualizations compared to Tableau. I also think it is easier to share these dashboards in Datorama compared to the options that Tableau offers.

Microsoft Power BI

Microsoft Power BI as I said earlier is unfortunate in relation to the panels but compared to Tableau.Although Microsoft Power BI has a general interface easier to understand in my company because we already have a signature with the package Office 365 that the integration of the same is excellent.

Return on Investment

Datorama

  • Has allowed our clients to check the data themselves instead of asking us to pull it
  • Less time pulling data = more time providing insights and recommendations
  • Set up takes a long time and the Datorama team is slow on implementation
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Power BI

  • I'm using the free version, so the only investment was the time spent to learn how to use the product (which as an Excel user, was very short).
  • I use Excel to store every single bit of information about all the projects I do, and being able to see them visualized helped me see some redundant steps I was taking.
  • No negative impact at all for me.
