Pros

It's an incredible programming for examination. I love the perception highlights since it transform drilling information into fun outlines or diagrams.
The ability to filter to the specific metric we are interested in is an amazing feature.
It is a good data analytics and visualization software and its ability to import data from multiples sources is a great feature.

Pros

Not enoughreviews yet

Cons

Could be frustrating to use when first starting as it would give you an error message but provide no specifics on what is wrong or directions to fix it.
I find it a bit frustrating when presented with a visualisation that doesn't represent the particular angle on the data I am looking for.
Had to take some training courses and even at that it was still confusing.

Customisable & Handles Big Data

Reviewed 3 years ago

Reporting management information and reviewing performance in line with KPIs.

Pros

Power BI is useful for displaying KPI performance information and is customisable to the user and viewers. It is a powerful tool and can handle big data i.e. rows of data in the hundreds of thousands. It can be accessed through anywhere via URL. Alternatively you can download the software.

Cons

It can sometimes get complex to navigate through the custom features built, which can be confusing for users. Due to the size of data used this can make the system slow to load.

Incredible analytics solution!

Reviewed 4 years ago

We have tried several analytics solutions in the past and Power BI gives us the most freedom and flexibility to report on our data. From SQL database to Excel sheets, Power BI can do it all and there seem to be no limits on what it can achieve. We have seen considerable increases in productivity and performance by using the analytics to our advantage.

Pros

The ability to completely customise the look and feel of reports and dashboards, the product is updated on a regular basis and our end users are very happy with the results.

Cons

Setting up the data gateways was a little bit fiddly to start off with but any issues were easily resolved.

Beautiful dashboards fast

Reviewed 3 years 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.
