Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft BI

My company uses it to analyze data from our various departments (customer service,logistics, manufacturing, etc.) and based on the data, we make necessary adjustments or changes to our business strategies. Typically only the department heads work with Microsoft BI and the results are discussed by upper management, both local and regional.
  • Great dashboard
  • Great integration with other Microsoft programs
  • Great visualizations
  • It is best for simpler analytics
  • Not intuitive to use for first time users
  • Better understanding of our data
  • Save time with scheduled and real time reports
One of the main reasons Microsoft BI was chosen by our company is because it is a reliable program. We tried different programs in the past (and currently also use other ones for certain reporting and analysis needs) but Microsoft BI was the least buggy out of our top choices.
Microsoft BI is best after a bit of training on how to use the program. It is straight forward to use after that and easy to integrate with all your Microsoft programs, and I would recommend it as the next step after Excel because Microsoft BI's capabilities can be very similar to that of Excel.
