Power BI is a step above MS Query, MS Access, Excel.

Data analytics with "hooks" into various database systems. It's a query tool; which anyone can muck up if the queries are convoluted enough. Reports; charts; it has what users want to see.

No "dragging or dropping" or "programming".

BI is "on line"; SSRS is "batch".

DevExpress is a "programming tool" for "programmers". BI is an end-user (desktop) tool; from easy to complex (power users).

Give the users BI and listen to their feedback / get them started.

And, it's free.


"Before entering on an understanding, I have meditated for a long time, and have foreseen what might happen. It is not genius which reveals to me suddenly, secretly, what I have to say or to do in a circumstance unexpected by other people; it is reflection, it is meditation." - Napoleon I
