Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft BI

Currently, Microsoft BI is used across entire organization for production performance and other performance KPIs.
  • Drill down function from higher level to more granular levels work perfectly, other products do not provide this functionality
  • User-friendly graphics
  • Data access is almost instant
  • Charts configuration are not so easy
  • Database table connections are not so straight forward
  • Requires too much hardware power
TIBCO Spotfire is better in loading multiple data sources, a bit faster on data mining, but not so nice on the dashboard side if this needs to be accessed by several users. On the other hand, Microsoft BI is perfect for an online dashboard.
You need to have good IT skills to connect different data sources.
It's perfect for a dashboard, user-friendly and easy to create graphs.
Online dash-boarding fits perfectly after it is deployed. It's not so perfect if you need to connect often to various data sources. It's quite tedious (you need to have good IT skills).
