Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Power BI
We use Power BI in our IT dept, but the information and analytics gained are then provided company-wide to those who need it or could be helped by the information. It helps us easily visualize and conceptualize the data that we've always had. Insights gained are really quite valuable.
We liked Power BI over the other options we looked at (primarily Tableau) because of its super easy integration with other Microsoft products like Dynamics 365, MS Server, as well as desktop applications that we use company-wide that are base don Windows. The price was also a bit more cost-effective for us.
It's really helpful in the world today, as big data has taken over the data center and IOT has really caused a massive influx of data coming in. And without a way to visualize and correlate the information into logical, sortable data, it's basically worthless. Power BI helps bring value to the data you already have.
