Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft BI

We have deployed the Microsoft BI tool company-wide now. It is very simple to use and better than other tools available. You can easily create and share dashboards. It helps an organization in multiple ways by creating very interactive dashboards, and its possible to present complex data in a more presentable way.
  • Creating amazing dashboards
  • You can create a variety of reports and can be scheduled automatically.
  • You can integrate big data in Microsoft BI.
  • It gets hanged while developing complex report which hampers productivity
  • You require pro version to do most of the task
Tableau is very slow, and it's very complicated to use, whereas Microsoft BI is faster and more efficient.
Microsoft BI is best suited for creating interactive dashboards, and you can connect various data sources and analyze the data. I don't have any scenario where it is less suitable
