Excel, SSRS, Report Builder, PowerPivot, PerformancePoint, Power View. Which one should I use? I will discuss the pro's and con's of each and give demo's of all the tools so you know the best tool for each situation.

Given two types of underlying data sources (a data warehouse and a OLAP cube built from the data warehouse) there are many different possible presentation layers (client tools) that serve different user communities with varying usage profiles. There is a lot of confusion on what is the best tool to use. This presentation will hopefully clear up the confusion and give you some guidance on the best tool for each situation.

  • Glad you like it Mark! Great points you bring up. For the report matrix, I use that by interviewing the business users to determine their reporting needs and best tools to use. But I see your idea that I could use it to help guide the users to the proper tool. I will add that to my presentation.

  • Nice, James, I really like it! MSFT BI users often ask for this kind of content because the different reporting tools all have different strengths and weaknesses and it helps to indicate which are appropriate for what activity.

    I also like the fact that you included Data Mining, which is often overlooked when talking about reporting in the MSFT BI stack. Especially with data scientists as a key IT role going forward, this is an important tool.

    BTW, I was wondering why the Report Matrix slide is empty at the end of your presentation. It would be interesting to see how you mapped the BI tools to each intersection.

    Thanks! Mark

  • Business Intelligence is an extremely hot career. If you are a DBA, how can you transition to a BI role? I will describe what exactly BI is, what encompasses the Microsoft BI stack, why it is so popular, and why a BI career pays so much. Then I will delve into the steps to take to become a BI expert and how I made the transition.
