Pros

I find the PowerBi amazing to have an easy to navigate and attractive interface, simple to create a new panel, easy to learn, not to mention the integrations he already has.

Magno B.

It is a good data analytics and visualization software and its ability to import data from multiples sources is a great feature.

Anonymous Reviewer

A great reporting tool with great visuals and user friendly graphical user interface.A wonderful application for running day to day activities.

CM

Clive M.

Pros

Very easy to use, set up and organize. Their charting and reporting tools are super powerful, and generate great dashboards and reports.

NV

Nathan V.

Also is good subscription by email (or other methods) and great to use python to create some sophisticated analysis.

MD

Mario D.

The ability to do queries in both SQL and R programming allow for dynamic data pulls. The ability to schedule reports is also very helpful for the different departments at my company.

RA

Roarke A.

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.

YZ

Yang Z.

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.

DS

Daniel S.

Had to take some training courses and even at that it was still confusing.

KJ

Kyle J.

Cons

It has limited features on visualization options, such as drag and drop.

EV

Elle V.

Another complaint is that the dashboard layout editor doesn't feel as intuitive as the rest of the Mode platform.

JV

Joseph V.

Charting options can be limited sometimes, and I don't always have the time to put something together in python. Pivot tables are AWFUL, just get rid - it's not even worth offering them.

Microsoft Power BI

Free but that comes at a price

Reviewed 2 years ago

It has been an overall negative experience seeing as it is largely inferior and poorly designed to many of its competitors. It is only good for saving some money.

Pros

I like that I am able to publish reports for free for other users in my organization to see.

Cons

I dislike the incredibly limited functionality. This is even more true for direct query mode.

Review of Power BI

Reviewed 2 years ago

I would recommend Power BI because it moves away from the traditional visualization of data and the interface with Excel is smooth.

Pros

I like that Power BI can make wonderful visuals from my data, it can go beyond normal bar and pie charts. Enjoy that it there is no complications with the data from Excel.

Cons

I would prefer if there was a suggestion mode of how to visualize the data, at time I am not very sure how to best present it. It is not very intuitive to navigate around to get to the results you want.

Power Bi: How to maximixe your Business Intelligence skiĺls with fun!

Reviewed 3 years ago

It is advisable to invest first some time in taking some basic online Power BI video courses before attempting developing first reports. Then, it is advisable to carefully review some available Power BI sample reports in order to explore applied key software features.This precious learning investment will get effective and impressive results.

Pros

The extremely powerful and user-friendly Business Intelligence tools. The frequent software updates. The availability of very useful video tutorials offered free by Microsoft. The pleasure of being able to quickly and effectively developing powerful and visually appealing business intelligence reports. The great familiarity with Excel interface and data manipulation features.

Cons

The extremely reach amount of available Power B.I reporting features and the ongoing software updates may intimidate a beginner user. The lack of a beginner user mode enabling a simplified and streamlined software view and usage. The lack of wizards the could facilitate and expedite Business Intelligence reports.
