Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft BI

Microsoft BI is being used in a department to manage Advanced Surveys. It served as a gateway to developing the reporting system for the administrators of the department doing the said surveys.
  • Easy to use.
  • Integration with other systems.
  • Quick development.
  • More advanced reporting options.
  • Reporting tools interface update.
  • Drag and drop functionalities improved.
Microsoft BI is an extension of Microsoft SQL Server, it can be used to develop the data warehousing of the information stored in SQL Server and also turn that information in fully customizable reports.
Microsoft BI allows for integration and merging data from disparate sources, allowing the interconnection of several systems without much effort and at a low cost.
On Microsoft BI, the sharing and collaboration capability is top notch, allowing for a better teamwork and concurrent development.
Integrations with SQL Server or Azure databases - there is a lot of documentation online that supports this implementation, and it has very accessible pricing options.
