Pros

Our clients were impressed by the reporting and when we used the software consistently we saw excellent results in increasing site rankings.
I like the ease of use, the way things are organized, and the vast selection of tools from a keyword manager to come competitive intelligence tools as well as the reporting.
I like the quick and easy reporting features. Love the big picture insights.

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.

Cons

One of the many challenges is the loss of features.
I dislike having to look around to find features I'm looking for.
When canceling the billing cycle, the usage stops, so you cannot login and use the software for the remainder that you have paid for.

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.

Not enough tools to really assist the designer.

Pros

The ability to use maps right out of the box and quickly was very nice. I also really liked how the engine would associate colors with dimensions.

Cons

The interface was a little clunky and finding the tools you were looking for was not so easy. It is missing an associative model engine.

Great tool to use for BI reporting and analysis

Reviewed 4 years ago

We use this alongside other BI tools for ad hoc analysis

Pros

Integration into existing office applications - it's fantastic that you're able to insert Power BI charts straight into presentations. It's integration directly into other software packages like Zendesk is also a game changer, makes it very easy to pull in data from disparate data sources.

Cons

Not as well established as some of its competitors, and it's licensing model is a bit complicated, but other than that it's very useful as a BI package.

Microsoft Power BI Review

Reviewed 6 months ago

My overall experience with Microsoft Power BI is fair but it has a variety of visualization tools.

Pros

I like that I can import data from different file formats, not just a specific format. I like that i have the ability to reshape and edit my data before applying any analytical tool. Also, the interface is very easy and similar to other Microsoft products so it will be easy to deal with if you have previous background with other micrsoft applications .

Cons

The collaborative tools that Microsoft Power BI offers are very limited as it is hard to manage a project with my team through it. Also, I can't benefit from windows overlapping if I want to work on several workspaces at the same time.

Microsoft Power BI Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

Anyone who is familiar with Excel and Excel Pivots would find Power BI to be a good fit. I also recommend it to someone who is unfamiliar with and does not use similar software. Power BI is faster than the other apps in terms of the time it takes to go from having no knowledge to creating a fairly usable dashboard. It can also be a good introduction to business intelligence software in general, as it can help to simplify processes and see the big picture.

Pros

Platform with a plethora of data source connectors that is extremely strong. It's extremely user-friendly. Capabilities for data visualization that are second to none.

Cons

Data preparation tools are divided into desktop and mobile versions. On the free edition, the refresh period is capped.
