If your turnover is high or if there is not enough specialists on hand to REALLY train it well, its a lost value. The learning curve is steep and it really depends on your base level item level data and input. Can you trust what it is telling you?

i wish that there are more data vizulaization capabilties without having to purchase those seprately in BI itself , the BI still keeps the old flvours of features for charting that could be enhanced
