15 Reasons Why Microsoft is Leading the BI Space


I hope you’re enjoying the beginning of 2017 and you’re staying healthy and busy. It’s been a hectic and exciting period for me. I published the second edition of my “Applied Microsoft Power BI” book in January to keep it up to date.  It’s great to see all the momentum and interest surrounding Power BI. Just last month, I taught my “Applied Power BI” class three few weeks in a row! On the implementation side of things, companies of all sizes are adopting Power BI. And, one of our customers made the Power BI blog with their CRM platform that uses Power BI Embedded to deliver interactive reports to their users!


The Gartner 2017 Magic Quadrant for BI and Data Analytics

Speaking of Power BA and its momentum, industry observers are taking notice. As Kamal Hathi (General Manager, Microsoft BI) announced, the newly released Garner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Data Analytics gave Microsoft a very high score. Read the full report here.

Of course, there are many competing definitions of what constitutes a BI and Analytics platform. Note that Gartner reviewed only Power BI and certain aspects of Cortana Analytics. Reporting Services, Analysis Services and the other on-premises and cloud Microsoft BI-related solutions are not covered, such as Azure SQL Database, SQL Data Warehouse, Azure ML, Query Catalog, Cognitive Services, HDInsight,  Data Lake, StreamInsight). If we take them in consideration, where will the dot be?

The image below shows the Microsoft’s lift between last year and this year in the Gartner magic quadrant. What a leap!

 031117_2001_PrologikaNe2.png  031117_2001_PrologikaNe3.png

I’m surprised to find that the dot is not higher on the ability to execute, especially considering that Gartner ranked Microsoft and its main rival (Tableau) almost the same. You might also find my two-part blog about Tableau vs. Microsoft useful if you are tasked to compare these two vendors.

Understanding the 15 Critical Capabilities

As explained in the report, to evaluate vendors, Gartner uses 15 critical capabilities to support five main use cases: Agile Centralize BI Provisioning, Decentralized Analytics. Governed Data Discovery, Embedded BI, and Extranet Deployments. The following table includes my comments on each of the 15 capability.

Capability My Rank  Teo’s Comments
Infrastructure BI Platform Administration, Security and Architecture
Capabilities that enable platform security, administering users, auditing platform access and utilization, optimizing performance and ensuring high availability and disaster recovery.

Medium to High

There are a lot of things here:
Security – More work is required to support external users in Power BI, Power BI Embedded, and SSRS
Administering users – Power BI supports a progressive deployment depending on the desired level of integration with Office 365 (unmanaged tenant, managing tenant, and federated AD)
Auditing: Power BI supports auditing access and utilization but more work is required for proactive monitoring and improving its data governance capabilities
Performance and HA: Highly-redundant and scalable backend, consisting of SSAS Tabular farm and Azure services.
Cloud BI
Platform-as-a-service and analytic-application-as-a-service capabilities for building, deploying and managing analytics and analytic applications in the cloud, based on data both in the cloud and on-premises

High

Power BI supports both pure cloud and hybrid architectures depending on data volumes and security requirements. No other vendor offers both architectures.
Data Source Connectivity and Ingestion
Capabilities that allow users to connect to the structured and unstructured data contained within various types of storage platforms, both on-premises and in the cloud.

High

As of this time, Power BI supports close to 70 connectors to let you connect to cloud and on-premises data sources. No scripting required.
Data Management Metadata Management
Tools for enabling users to leverage a common SOR semantic model and metadata. These should provide a robust and centralized way for administrators to search, capture, store, reuse and publish metadata objects such as dimensions, hierarchies, measures, performance metrics/key performance indicators (KPIs), and report layout objects, parameters and so on. Administrators should have the ability to promote a business-user-defined data mashup and metadata to the SOR metadata.

Medium to High

Microsoft offers an organizational BI Semantic Model (BISM) which is typically implemented as an Analysis Services Tabular or Multidimensional models. On the self-service side of things, users can create Excel or Power BI Desktop models. IT can promote a self-service Excel model to a Tabular model. Although not officially supported because Power BI Desktop is changing every month, IT can upgrade a Power BI Desktop model to a Tabular model.
Self-Contained Extraction, Transformation and Loading (ETL) and Data Storage
Platform capabilities for accessing, integrating, transforming and loading data into a self-contained storage layer, with the ability to index data and manage data loads and refresh scheduling.

Medium

SSIS is the most popular on-premises ETL tool. More work is required to bring similar capabilities in the cloud (I think Azure Data Factory is a step backwards)
Self-Service Data Preparation
The drag-and-drop, user-driven data combination of different sources, and the creation of analytic models such as user-defined measures, sets, groups and hierarchies. Advanced capabilities include semantic autodiscovery, intelligent joins, intelligent profiling, hierarchy generation, data lineage and data blending on varied data sources, including multistructured data

High

Power BI Desktop and Excel has a fantastic query editor (originated from Power Query) that scores big with business users. Other vendors that score high in the Magic Quadrant don’t have such native capabilities. Power BI and Excel have best of class self-modeling capabilities (much better than Tableau). Azure Query Catalog can be used for dataset autodiscovery.
Analysis and Content Creation Embedded Advanced Analytics
Enables users to easily access advanced analytics capabilities that are self-contained within the platform itself or available through the import and integration of externally developed models.

High

Not sure what is meant here by “advanced analytics capabilities”. Power BI supports Quick Insights (brute-force machine learning), integration with R, Azure Machine Learning, clustering, forecasting, binning, but I might be missing something.
Analytic Dashboards
The ability to create highly interactive dashboards and content, with visual exploration and embedded advanced and geospatial analytics, to be consumed by others.

High

“Highly interactive dashboards and content” is what Power BI is all about.
Interactive Visual Exploration
Enables the exploration of data via an array of visualization options that go beyond those of basic pie, bar and line charts to include heat and tree maps, geographic maps, scatter plots and other special-purpose visuals. These tools enable users to analyze and manipulate the data by interacting directly with a visual representation of it to display as percentages, bins and groups.

Medium

Power BI covers all stated requirements in this category. However, while its visualization capabilities are improving every week, more work is required to catch up with the Tableau and Qlik in some areas, such as cell drillthrough, ability to repeat visualizations, such as to nest a bar into a table, conditional binding, exression-based properties and filters, and others.
Smart Data Discovery
Automatically finds, visualizes and narrates important findings such as correlations, exceptions, clusters, links and predictions in data that are relevant to users without requiring them to build models or write algorithms. Users explore data via visualizations, natural-language-generated narration, search and NLQ technologies.

Medium to High

Through Quick Insights, Power BI can automatically find correlations, outliers, and other hidden trends. It doesn’t currently have native narrative capabilities, except for the custom visual from Narrative Science. Power BI is one of the few vendors that offers natural queries.
Mobile Exploration and Authoring
Enables organizations to develop and deliver content to mobile devices in a publishing and/or interactive mode, and takes advantage of mobile devices’ native capabilities, such as touchscreen, camera, location awareness and natural-language query

High

Native apps for iOS, Android and Windows to surface both Power BI and SSRS reports.
Sharing of Findings Embedding Analytic Content
Capabilities including a software developer’s kit with APIs and support for open standards for creating and modifying analytic content, visualizations and applications, embedding them into a business process, and/or an application or portal. These capabilities can reside outside the application (reusing the analytic infrastructure), but must be easily and seamlessly accessible from inside the application without forcing users to switch between systems. The capabilities for integrating BI and analytics with the application architecture will enable users to choose where in the business process the analytics should be embedded.

High

An Azure cloud service, Power BI Embedded allows you to embed reports for external users with very appealing cost-effective licensing model. On premises, SSRS offers similar capabilities.
Publish, Share and Collaborate on Analytic Content
Capabilities that allow users to publish, deploy and operationalize analytic content through various output types and distribution methods, with support for content search, scheduling and alerts. Enables users to share, discuss and track information, analysis, analytic content and decisions via discussion threads, chat and annotations.

High

Power BI supports subscriptions and data alerts but we can do better, such as to allow an admin to subscribe other users. Power BI workspaces and groups allow users to share BI artifacts, participate in discussion lists, and share calendars. Power BI Mobile allows users to annotate reports.
Overall platform capabilities Platform Capabilities and Workflow
This capability considers the degree to which capabilities are offered in a single, seamless product or across multiple products with little integration.

Medium to High

The integration hub is Power BI Service which integrates Power BI reports, Excel reports, SSRS reports. More work is required on integration with Excel reports that connect to SSAS models.
Ease of Use and Visual Appeal
Ease of use to administer and deploy the platform, create content, consume and interact with content, as well as the visual appeal.

High

As far as deployment, Power BI is “five seconds to sign up, five minutes to wow!” As far as the visual appeal, beauty is the eye of the beholder but Power BI has done respectable job to follow best visualization practices.

Implementing Header-Details in Power BI

Lots of things to like in the just released March update of Power BI Desktop! My favorite? We can now implement header-details text reports using the updated Matrix visual. Previously, Table and Matrix visuals wouldn’t allow you to select a row to cross filter other sections. Now, you can use the Matrix visual for the header section. When you click a row in the “header”, other visuals get cross-filtered. In the screenshot below, the Table visual shows all customers who have purchased the selected product. Also, notice that the Slicer visual has also been upgraded to allow sliding a numeric measure.

Gartner’s 2017 BI and Data Analytics Magic Quadrant Shows Microsoft Leading

Power BI is enjoying a tremendous momentum and unprecedented popularity. Just within this month, your humble correspondent has been teaching Power BI four times in a row. It looks like industry observers are taking notice of this momentum. As Kamal Hathi (General Manager, Microsoft BI) announced, the newly released Garner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Data Analytics gave Microsoft a very high score. The image below shows the Microsoft’s lift between last year and this year in the Gartner magic quadrant.

I’m not surprised about the Qlik drop given they sold out the company. What’s still surprising to me is that Gartner ranked Tableau and Microsoft almost the same on the ability to execute. Although the report is not out yet, judging by the stub, Gartner used the same 14 criteria as last year, but added one more which is unknown at this point (probably real-time where Microsoft can score very high as well). Here are my comments on where Microsoft stands on these 14 criteria. You might also find my two-part blog about Tableau vs. Microsoft useful if you are tasked to compare vendors.

Capability

Teo’s Rank for MS BI

Comments
Infrastructure BI Platform Administration
Capabilities that enable scaling the platform, optimizing performance and ensuring high availability and disaster recovery

High

On premises or cloud, I think the MS BI Platform is second to none

High

As of this time, Power BI supports close to 70 connectors to let you connect to cloud and on-premises data sources. No scripting required.
Data Management Governance and Metadata Management
Tools for enabling users to share the same systems-of-record semantic model and metadata. These should provide a robust and centralized way for administrators to search, capture, store, reuse and publish metadata objects, such as dimensions, hierarchies, measures, performance metrics/key performance indicators (KPIs) and report layout objects, parameters and so on. Administrators should have the ability to promote a business-user-defined data model to a system-of-record metadata object.

Medium

Power BI has done a good job to provide auditing and admin oversight but more work is required for proactive monitoring and improving its data governance capabilities
Self-Contained Extraction, Transformation and Loading (ETL) and Data Storage
Platform capabilities for accessing, integrating, transforming and loading data into a self-contained storage layer, with the ability to index data and manage data loads and refresh scheduling.

High

“Highly interactive dashboards and content” is what Power BI is all about.
Interactive Visual Exploration
Enables the exploration of data via the manipulation of chart images, with the color, brightness, size, shape and motion of visual objects representing aspects of the dataset being analyzed. This includes an array of visualization options that go beyond those of pie, bar and line charts, to include heat and tree maps, geographic maps, scatter plots and other special-purpose visuals. These tools enable users to analyze the data by interacting directly with a visual representation of it

High

According to Gartner’s definition, Power BI should score high but more work is required on the visualization side of things, such as ability to drill through a chart point as we can do in SSRS.
Mobile Exploration and Authoring
Enables organizations to develop and deliver content to mobile devices in a publishing and/or interactive mode, and takes advantage of mobile devices’ native capabilities, such as touchscreen, camera, location awareness and natural-language query

High

Native apps for iOS, Android and Windows to surface both Power BI and SSRS reports.

High

An Azure cloud service, Power BI Embedded allows you to do this with an appealing cost-effective licensing model.
Publishing Analytic Content
Capabilities that allow users to publish, deploy and operationalize analytic content through various output types and distribution methods, with support for content search, storytelling, scheduling and alerts.

Medium

Power BI supports subscriptions and data alerts but we can do better, such as to allow an admin to subscribe other users. “Storytelling” can mean different things but I thought the integration with Narrative Science can fall into this category.
Collaboration and Social BI
Enables users to share and discuss information, analysis, analytic content and decisions via discussion threads, chat and annotations

High

Power BI supports this with workspaces and Office 365 unified groups.

Of course, there are many competing definitions of what constitutes a BI and Analytics platform. Again, it looks to me that Gartner has predominantly focused on the self-service BI aspect of it (even there Microsoft should have scored higher) and ignored the SQL Server BI features and all the cloud BI-related products (Azure SQL Database, SQL Data Warehouse, Azure ML, Query Catalog, HDInsight, StreamInsight). If we take them in consideration, where will that dot be?

Types of Power BI Real-time Datasets

Everyone wants real-time BI, even when it doesn’t have to be really “real time”. Today Microsoft announced General Availability of Power BI Real-Time Streaming Datasets. There are actually three types of Power BI real-time datasets, as mentioned in the documentation.

  • Push – Power BI permanently stores the data, enabling historic analysis, and reports creation atop the dataset. Behind the scenes, Power BI provisions an Azure SQL instance when the dataset is created. New data is pushed into SQL. Power BI then connects to that dataset via DirectQuery. Query Refresh (sending new queries to Azure SQL to update dashboard visuals) occurs whenever data is pushed in. When you create the dataset programmatically, you can specify a retention policy (defaultRetentionPolicy setting). When defaultRetentionPolicy is set to None, the dataset accumulates data to the maximum allowed Power BI limit (currently 1 GB). When set to basicFIFO, the dataset holds up to 200,000 rows and after that older rows are pushed out when the new ones come in.
  • Streaming — Power BI stores the data only in a transient cache – this means report creation, historic analysis is disabled, but in return there is consistently lower latency between when the data is pushed in and when the visuals update. The data flows into a Redis cache, and the dashboard visuals directly pull data from that Redis cache. Therefore, consider streaming datasets when you want the lowest latency (we are talking about milliseconds here) but you are limited to a few pre-defined visualizations supported by the Power BI dashboard real-time tiles. You can’t create custom reports.
  • Hybrid — Hybrid datasets send data to both the “push” and “streaming” endpoints, thereby getting the benefits of both at the expense of duplicate storage.

Unless you use StreamInsight (currently, it supports only push datasets) or PubNub (supports streaming datasets), you must create the dataset programmatically using the Power BI REST APIs. Currently, you can’t use Power BI Desktop to create real-time datasets.

Unblocking the On-premises Data Gateway

Scenario: You have configured the Power BI on-premises data gateway for centralized data access and verified that its data sources test just fine. Direct query connections work. However, when you go to Power BI Service and attempt to schedule a data refresh for a dataset, you might find that the data gateway is disabled.

Solution: The most common reasons for Power BI to disable the on-premises data gateway for refresh are:

  1. Unlike the personal gateway, the on-premises data gateway requires you to register data sources. You must go to the gateway properties and create data sources for all data sources used in your Power BI Desktop file. Unfortunately, as it stands Power BI doesn’t allow you to select which data sources in the Power BI Desktop file will be refreshed and which ones don’t require a refresh. It’s all or nothing proposition. So, if one data source is not compatible or can’t be refreshed, the gateway will be disabled.
  2. The connection strings in data sources in the Power BI Desktop file might differ from the settings of the data sources you registered in the on-premises gateway. For example, in Power BI Desktop you might have imported data from a local Excel file. Then, you might have moved the file to a network share and established a gateway data source to point to the network share. Because the connection strings differ, Power BI Service won’t find an on-premises gateway to serve the Excel file and it will disable the gateway for refresh. So, triple-verify the that data sources match.
  3. You might have manually added a table to your model and entered some data using the Power BI Desktop “Enter Data” feature. Because custom tables can’t refresh, Power BI disables the gateway.

Customer Success Case – ZynBit

One of our customers, ZynBit, made the Power BI blog today! Initially, ZynBit was considering Tableau but abandoned it in favor of Power BI because of the Power BI superior data modeling capabilities and the cost effective licensing model of Power BI Embedded. Prologika helped ZynBit to transition their solution to Power BI, including designing the data model and integrating reports with Power BI Embedded. Read our case study here.

Power BI Subscriptions

Today Microsoft released a highly anticipated Power BI feature – subscribed report delivery. Similar to SSRS individual subscriptions, users can go to a Power BI report and subscribe to one or more of its pages to receive a snapshot of the page on a scheduled basis. The following scenarios are possible depending on the report data source:

  • Imported datasets – the subscription follows the dataset refresh schedule. You’ll get an email every time the scheduled refresh happens, so long as you haven’t gotten an email in the last 24 hours.
  • DirectQuery datasets – Power BI checks the data source every 15 minutes. You’ll get an email as soon as the next check happens, provided that you haven’t gotten an email in the last 24 hours (if Daily is selected), or in the last seven days (if Weekly is selected).
  • Live connection to SSAS – Power BI checks the data source every 15 minutes and it’s capable of detecting if the data has changed. You’ll get an email only if the data has changed if you haven’t gotten an email in the last 24 hours
  • Connected Excel reports – Power BI checks the data source every hour. You’ll get an email only if the data has changed if you haven’t gotten an email in the last 24 hours.

011617_1307_PowerBISubs1.png

Power BI subscriptions have these limitations:

  • The only export option is screenshot. You can’t receive the page exported to PowerPoint, for example.
  • Users can create individual subscriptions only. You can’t subscribe other users as you can do with Reporting Services data-driven subscriptions.
  • The Power BI admin can’t see or manage subscriptions across the tenant.

Power BI Reports in SSRS Techinical Preview

From the glimpse to the first public preview…it’s great to see one of most requested feature coming to life: ability to render online Power BI reports in on-premises SSRS. Alas, Microsoft is keeping us in suspense and no official date and release vehicles have been announced yet but we can now see and test it using the VM that Microsoft put on Azure (read the Chris Finlan’s steps to get started).

At this point, the integration supports only Power BI Desktop files that connect to Analysis Services (Multidimensional and Tabular). Attempting to deploy models connected to something else or with imported data, doesn’t work and you’ll get an error. Custom visuals and R visuals are not supported yet. For the most part, the integration is limited to report viewing only (similar to what you get if you embed Power BI reports in Power BI Embedded). That’s will be probably fine to start with but it will be nice to have Q&A, Quick Insights, Analyze in Excel, and ability to create custom reports online.

It’s great that Microsoft decided to expose the connection string as a regular SSRS data source. This will allow you to change the credentials settings, such as to impersonate the user when Kerberos is not an option and the SSAS is on another server. When the Power BI Desktop file is uploaded, it’s saved in the report catalog as any regular SSRS report (now referred to a paginated report). This means that you secure and manage Power BI reports the same way you work with paginated reports. Speaking of management, I hope that at some point Microsoft will add support for subscriptions and caching. What’s need is unification among the four types of reports: paginated, mobile, Power BI, and Excel. While waiting, we get a handy bonus feature: ability to add comments to reports, such as to get someone to formally approve what they see on the report.

Everyone is asking about SSRS support for Power BI reports. Progress has been make and I hope it won’t be long before we get the real thing.
