Hello,

 

It may not always be enough to simply compare Microsoft Power BI and TIBCO Spotfire with one another. Power BI is designed to improve self service capabilities of older SSRS. Power BI desktop allows to create reports on the fly and publish them. Using any browser end users can view the reports. 

 

Thanks!
