Microsoft PowerPivot Vs. Tableau
Ready to rumble
I wrote a recent article providing an overview of the Tableau Self-Service BI (SSBI) suite and a brief comparison with that of Microsoft PowerPivot (http://www.sqlmag.com/article/business-intelligence/tableau-bi-suite.aspx ). However, since that time even more people in the community are asking me about how the two products stack up against one another. In this extended blog post I will take you on a pound-for-pound comparison of the two SSBI products while explicitly excluding the price factor.
Note: To keep the comparison fair I am not comparing any of the Microsoft BI platform’s features beyond those found in PowerPivot
