Microsoft Power BI is a visualization and data discovery tool from Microsoft. It allows users to convert data into visuals and graphics, visually explore and analyze data, collaborate on interactive dashboards and reports, and scale across their organization with built-in governance and security.A great way to visualize your dataPower BI is a very good tool to create quick reports with beautiful visualizations and a great tool to research your data visually. I think that seeing your data in a visual way can help you see things you may miss with a standard report. I use it to track my projects to compare costs and revenues.,Power BI allows you to show or look at your data in different types of visualizations easily and quickly. It is light-weight with great selection of visualization tools (with many add-ons available for extra types of visualization). You can create reports using the easy to use and elegant looking dashboard which would be familiar to Excel users. The data you analyze can come from single or multiple data sources, with a huge selection of data source types. The reports and graphs you create can be easily customized to suit your needs or taste. New features are being added rapidly (which can be a con for some as it can result in having to re-learn to use some of the operations).,May be a little hard at first for users with no Excel (or competing products) [experience]. Can be slow with large amounts of data. Office 365 version of Power BI is not as easy to use as the desktop version. Exporting and integration with other products can be improved.,10,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.,Excel,Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Acrobat DC, TextMagic, NetBeans, Google Analytics, AdWords, SAP Crystal Reports, WebSphere Application Server, SAP Business Objects, Drupal, Joomla!,1,1,Plan project budget based on previous projects Assess AdWord campaign success Compare expenses against income based on similar past projects,If and when my business will grow, I will be using the BI collaboration features to track all employee projects,10,Yes,Price Product Features Product Usability Third-party Reviews,I am happy with how and what I have selected.
