Discover which powerful BI tools you may already own.
Using an interactive matrix, this tool lets you immediately see the BI capabilities in your existing products, and also ways you can upgrade to get the specific BI capabilities for your business goals and preferences. It will even give you customized resource links and next steps based on your company type, industry, use-case scenarios, and preferences – all exportable to a PowerPoint report.
Enter Information to Customize the Report: The Microsoft BI Solution Builder user experience starts by asking you for some specific company information, like industry type, existing software, use cases and BI preferences. This is an important step because the tool translates that information, along with what you enter into the capability matrix, into a customized report showing upgrade paths, resource links, case studies and white papers.
Answering the Question of "What Capabilities Do I Own?": The Microsoft BI Solution Builder gives you a detailed view into the specific business intelligence capabilities that exist in your current Microsoft product portfolio. Using an interactive matrix, the tool lets you enter the products you own and immediately see the BI capabilities available in each. The available product choices include multiple years/versions and editions.
Making Sure Your Technology Can Do What You Want: Figuring out which capabilities you already own is definitely an important step in the process of building out a BI solution. But equally important is making sure that those products can accomplish the tasks you need, like predictive analytics, data warehousing, and geospatial data mapping. The Microsoft BI Solution Builder allows you to enter the specific capabilities you want and then shows you which of your current products can or can’t perform that function.
Gain Access to Information and Customized Resources: Once you’ve gone through the tool, the information you provide is used to create a customized report showing upgrade paths, resource links, case studies and white papers. For example, if you entered that one of your preferred capabilities is Data Warehousing, but you don’t currently own a Microsoft product that does this, then the upgrade path will show you which product to purchase to get this capability. Plus, the final report is not just available online – you can also export to PowerPoint with the click of a button to preserve and share all the information and links.
