Easy Tasks

  • Building basic charts from already available show me is one of the quickest and easiest thing in any BI tool
  • connecting to data is quite simple we don't need to write long queries(unless we want to).
  • arranging sheets in the dashboard and using filters are just clicks away, anyone can do it by first chance only.

Easy Tasks

  • Graphing is easy to do. It gets harder when you have a particular graph capability that you must mimic.
  • Dashboards are super easy. Dashboard actions make the workbooks come alive.
  • Filtering and parameters are a great tool in the workbooks to limit your data down to a subset that you can analyze fully.
