Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft BI

Microsoft BI is used mainly for visualizations and dashboards
  • Pivot tables
  • Charts
  • Dashboards
  • Interactive mapping
  • Web publishing of dashboards
  • USer access
Spotfire is very powerful, but the learning curve is pretty steep.
Microsoft BI has a full range of available data sources, from the usual suspects for RDBMSes, to the most common flat file sources
My favorite is how easy to set up access control, based on roles.
Microsoft BI integrates seamlessly with MSSQL tables and cubes. The mobile app is also very easy to use and set up, This makes it very easy to access data from anywhere, using a phone or tablet.
