Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Power BI

We use Power BI for data presentation and Visualization of the data as we know raw data is nothing we use Power BI to clean and present data and derive meaningful information. It is very easy to use and if you are using Excel then the user interface is very similar to it.
  • Data Visualization
  • Integration with other Microsoft office app i.e Excel
  • User Interface is Easy
  • Sometime it is hard to work with non Microsoft Applications
  • Compatibility issues With Mac
  • Leaning curve
  • Saves lot of time in Cleaning Data and Report files
  • Stream line the process and data visualization made easy
  • Little bit Expensive

Did Microsoft Power BI live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Microsoft Power BI go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Microsoft Power BI again?

Yes

Easy user interface as I was already using Excel similar User interface to it, but if you are using First time their is some Leaning Curve.
  1. Easy to use.
  2. Easy Integration with Microsoft office.
  3. Data Visulisation made
When we are cleaning data and making reports and creating meaningful data from raw data and generating report, visualization of data to other stakeholders it is very useful application but some time using with non Microsoft apps it is not supported i.e Desktop version on Mac so not recommended for Mac.
