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

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.

Talend Data Integration

  • The speed of migration is very good for a Free ETL tool.
  • The amount of components or connectors we have is impressive.

Cons

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.
Greg Watkins | TrustRadius Reviewer

Talend Data Integration

  • Syncing with Git should be made easier
  • Can face issues with certain big data spaces
  • Support find it difficult to resolve complex issues

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.

We use Talend Data Integration day in and day out. It is the best and easiest tool to jump on to and use. We can build a basic integration super-fast. We could build basic integrations as fast as within the hour. It is also easy to build transformations and use Java to perform some operations.

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.

Good support, specially when it relates to PROD environment. The support team has access to the product development team. Things are internally escalated to development team if there is a bug encountered. This helps the customer to get quick fix or patch designed for problem exceptions. I have also seen support showing their willingness to help develop custom connector for a newly available cloud based big data solution

Alternatives Considered

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 .

Talend Data Integration

Talend is much versatile in assimilating various different business use cases. It covers more functionality and is packed with tons of features to explore. It has the ability to fine tune to each project, and not be a one-fits all solution. Problems with Excel, is that it is not suited for large projects, collaboration work. Alteryx is a very costly alternative.

Return on Investment

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
Alex Brielmann | TrustRadius Reviewer

Talend Data Integration

  • Easy to build complex data transformations.
  • Licensing model isn't that flexible.
  • Memory mangement for huge volumes of information. You have to modify ETL designs to handle it properly.
