  24. 24. What We Like About the Microsoft BI Platform?We believe that Microsoft offers superior value for the following reasons: It’s affordable and leverages existing investments.  In many cases the organization already own the Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Office licenses. It’s modular–organizations can deploy it all at once or one piece at a time.  For instance, one can start with Reporting Services and cubes and then integrate everything with SharePoint. Microsoft is focused on the end-user experience and making BI easy to use. 24
