Top 8 Business Intelligence (BI) Tools
It is quite easy to use and it helps me to achieve the projects that I've been assigned.
The solution is easy to use and flexible.
The best thing I like about Tableau is that you don't have to go for creating; it is calculated free.
Easy to create graphs and visualizations.
I like that Oracle OBIEE comes with more options. For example, more options with data security, user security, and other security. It's more complicated than Microsoft, but it gives you more options. They also added the part for machine learning, which is good.
The ability to collaborate and plan together is great.
Its user-friendliness is valuable. It is a product for end-users and not for IT, which is an advantage.
The reporting features the solution offers are excellent.
The platform uses a lot of Java technologies so the performance and system-level management are tricky because it needs a lot of resources.
One feature which I have found to be very interesting is the Beast manager, where you can create calculated fields. They are shared in one common repository so someone else can use the same calculated fields; they don't have to rewrite or reinvent the APIs.
The solution is ideal for enterprise-level companies or corporations.
It is easy to use and visually very appealing. One thing that sets it apart is that it has got a great ETL tool. As compared to some of the other solutions, it is much easier to process data from other applications in MicroStrategy. That's why we prefer using it.
In terms of stability, I think that Cognos is more stable than Tableau and Power Bi because of its framework manager concept that allows us to import metadata and store it in the framework manager.
