Power BI Alternative

Qrvey vs Power BI

See for Yourself

Embedded analytics is not the same as internal business intelligence.

Why choose a product built for something else?

What is Power BI?

Power BI is an internal business intelligence tool offered by Microsoft which integrates with their Office 365, SQL Server database products, but heavily favors Azure data storage. At the core of Power BI is the Power BI Desktop, a desktop Windows application. Power BI also includes modules for cubes, maps, natural language and mobile viewing. Power BI offers decent visualization capabilities, but relies on deployed or cloud-hosted server components for content distribution, making it less than ideal for embedded applications.

Companies Using Power BI for Embedded Analytics Struggle With:

Integration with multi-tenant SaaS applications
Database scaling as it relies on relational DB’s
It’s expensive! Licensing costs do not favor SaaS use cases
Integration with DevOps processes
Reliance on Azure (most SaaS applications are hosted on AWS)

Data Management + Embedded Analytics + Automation = Winning Combination

Companies Choose Qrvey for Embedded Analytics Solutions
Because Qrvey is Purpose Built for SaaS Applications

Faster Time to Market

Qrvey is natively built for SaaS applications, so that means your developers spend less time in development and your end users get the solution to their needs faster since we are laser focused on the needs of SaaS providers.

Power BI has typical javascript embedded widgets for charts and dashboards. The real challenge involves integrating this to a multi-tenant environment with the proper security controls SaaS applications require.

Full Suite of Embedded Widgets

Qrvey goes beyond the typical charts and dashboards. Not only can you offer custom dashboard builders, but every part of the Qrvey platform is embeddable carefully architected with developers in mind.

Power BI is built for internal analysts. They offer embedding options, but they’re really not for engineering teams to integrate into SaaS products as this isn’t their core focus.

No-Code Automation For Everyone

The power of Qrvey unlocks when any user of a SaaS application can build their own custom automation workflows using a no-code, embedded automation builder. Qrvey puts the power of automation in the hands of everyone.

Power BI primarily relies on direct-connections to SQL databases hosted on Azure or on-prem. These rarely scale efficiently or cost-effectively and don’t lend itself to scalable automation by SaaS applications end users.

Architecture Matters to SaaS Providers
