Pros

Power Bi has revolutionized the BI industry, it is the best too in self-service BI. I have been using it for more than two years and it helps me in finding great insights about our business.
The Desktop Version is awesome, provides multiple connectors to different data sources and powerful modelling capabilities so that I format my data exactly how I want it.
First I like that it is very affordable, secondly support is great with Q&A options to help you navigate through it and finally I like the report customization options.

Pros

Overall, am a happy user, ALteryx saved time and effort on daily basis and opened many horizons for me to clean he data in a timely manner.
It is very easy to use, and easy to learn on your own. They also have great customer support, and training videos.
I am very visual and enjoy knowing what I am doing by simply looking at the icons. This software can be as technical and as user friendly as you make it.

Cons

Personally, I have some trouble with the SQL. I get a tad bit confused on some of the tables to use but that is more personal human error.
Like any software that relies on the data entered, it is very much a situation of bad data in then bad data out.
It could get confusing to use at times. I also got annoyed that Power BI would constantly go down for long stretches... maybe that was our developer’s fault.

Cons

Occasionally, Alteryx will stop processing a workflow because of a minor error. Frequently, that minor error has a handful of different solutions, forcing you to try each solution one by one.
License is very costly which hinders the use of it by everyone.
Lack of (or limited) visualisation capability. Machine dependent licensed(it should had license key Linked to email ID, making it easier to port licensed from one system to another).

Microsoft Power BI

Beautiful dashboards fast

Reviewed a year ago

We use Power BI to take performance data after Alteryx has manipulated it, then create dashboards for presenting results to the client. It helps people track their own performance as well and is invaluable.

Pros

If you understand Excel and PowerPoint, you can hit it out of the ballpark with Power BI. The analytics handle like an easier version of Excel with a few quirks, while just a bit of time can make them look better than an expert PowerPoint.

Cons

The quirks. Power BI has a few things that you feel like it would be able to do after working in Excel, but they're not always possible.
