Business intelligence is critical for enterprises to gain a competitive edge and achieve the desired business goals! Making critical business decisions in a snap and bridging all the gaps between your data and decision-making is pivotal to enhancing the operational efficiency of your enterprise.

If you are still using SAP BO for business analytics, be prepared to tackle its associated maintenance and support which will become harder and more costly!
SAP BO comes with a hefty upfront cost. Apart from that, it also demands a huge share of your organizational budget for associated maintenance and support. If you have purchased SAP BO with a belief that it comes with a perpetual license that you can use for a lifetime, you should also be prepared to meet the additional expenses.
From simple analysis and reporting to complex customization and deployment, with SAP BO, your workforce needs to be dependent on your IT teams for almost anything and everything! As SAP Business Objects is not a self-service platform, you need to be constantly in touch with skilled developers to leverage it to its fullest.
As SAP BO is completely an on-premises solution, it will be hard for you to access your critical business insights on the go. Provided all the maintenance and updates on the platform can only be performed on-site. This is a huge disadvantage, especially when organizations around the world are moving their applications and data warehouses to cloud.
To achieve efficiency across various business touch points, you need to visualize your data in a highly intuitive manner. SAP BO has limited data visualization capabilities and it affects your ability to customize your reports according to your diverse business requirements.
The biggest advantage that Microsoft Power BI offers over enterprise legacy solutions like SAP BO is pricing. Power BI comes with a flexible pricing model with more built-in features. You can always start Power BI for free and if you wish to achieve collaboration with your team members, you can easily do that just by spending an additional 10$. Almost all the premium features at Power BI come to you for $30 without any exorbitant pricing like enterprise legacy solutions.
If you are migrating to Power BI, you needn’t worry about the user adoption part! Being a self-service platform, it offers an intuitive interface with simple drag and drop functionalities. Furthermore, the entire Power BI transformation is designed the same as the Excel power query. Meaning if your users are familiar with Excel, they will quickly become an expert at leveraging Power BI. They can create their own reports and dashboards without relying on your IT engineers. Even if they are looking for more powerful analysis features, they can easily build sophisticated queries and data models with the help of Power BI designer.
When you are migrating your entire organization’s applications to cloud, ensure you don’t leave your business intelligence tools. To make the most out of hybrid/remote working models and to achieve a competitive edge, you need systems that provide immediate access to your business information anytime and anywhere! As Power BI is a cloud-based platform, you can achieve easy, straightforward access to all your custom reports, dashboards, and crucial business insights on the go without any interruption.
Power BI brings data to life and makes you the master storyteller of the insights hidden behind your numbers. Compared to the legacy enterprise SAP Business Objects, Power BI has various reports and dashboards delivered as ‘out of the box’ functionality. Through the live data dashboards, interactive reports, charts, graphs, and other visual representations your teams can easily make informed business decisions quickly and effectively.
With Power BI, you can experience seamless integration with Office 365 and all the other key business applications that you leverage on an everyday basis. By leveraging OOTB connectors, you can easily integrate Power BI with Dynamics 365, Salesforce, Snowflake, Google Analytics, and a lot of other applications and platforms. It also allows you to access on-premises, Azure Cloud, and all the other crucial third-party data sources in a single easy-to-use application. Thus, with Power BI, you can make collaboration happen by bringing together insights from disparate data sources.
One of the significant benefits that Power BI holds over SAP BO is its mobile reporting capabilities! With Power BI mobile apps, you can set up personal data alerts on your dashboards. Whenever your single number visuals, such as card or gauge change beyond the limits you have set, with Power BI’s mobile reporting capabilities, you will automatically receive a notification on your mobile phone.
