Pretty sure I'll get shit for this one. I like Microsoft BI. It's easy and quick to slap charts together, filter, organize, etc. It can import a crazy amount of file formats and DBs. The stand alone is free and exports pdfs you can decently design. I mostly use it privately for investigating data. So my report generation knowledge isnt deep. If you want to use the cloud services, that costs a bit. They update just about every month with some new features. I find quarterly is when you see significant changes.

No, it's great. I assumed Power BI cost a lot of money and wouldn't have considered it.

The free version has never limited me in any way for my needs. Theres a cloud, sharing dashboard thing that costs money, but I never needed it since I only need to share static pdf reports.

Outputting vnlog, using those tools to filter, and then plotting using feedgnuplot have covered most of my visualization needs.

Haven't done much BI work recently, but normally my approach boils down to:

a) OpenRefine (formerly Google Refine) for cleaning and filtering - i.e. exploring and making sense of new data dumps

b) Grafana for dashboards, once the data structures are defined.

c) looking forward to this Pinterest-backed data explorer

Superset and Redash worth a look. I'd go superset if you are comfortable with python but want some of the prebuilt stuff that Tableau gives you.

R Shiny is another good option that hasn't been mentioned yet. If you just want to amuse yourself building a "works on my machine" dashboard you can't go far wrong with it.
