    Power BI is not suited towards enterprise customers, as it's handling of large data volumes is particularly poor. The product lacks scalability in this regard, as it can take hours to load large data volumes whereas other tools such as Qlik Sense can load similar volumes in seconds or minutes. Data transformation is difficult as you need to learn M and DAX languages, which aren't intuitive and easy to learn. The query based nature of the tool means the configuration is complex and paths are linear and need to be setup, as opposed to Qlik Sense which has an association discovery model which automates this. Governance of users is an issue with regards to license allocation and security (who has access to what). Review collected by and hosted on
