I have a sql enterprise 2014 with SSIS, SSAS, SSAS Tabular & Powerbi

Powerbi is used more for gaphical view of cubes, with olap presnted in excel

Mostly finance users so they love their excel but i have other business units who would like more analytics

  1. is there other options to present ssas cube but not excel & powerbi?
  2. I thought of olap online or in cloud?
  3. More self service tool, connecto to dw and users drag and drop their dim etc

I'm trying to bridge the gap between excel olap finance users and powerbi, analtical tool on top of olap or onto data warehouse
Excel Olap > ? > Powerbi or even on top of powerbi

Please help, i need to evolve and data storage to azure is not an option

    which one is the best?

    That depends on your requirements and preferences.
    I still prefer Excel, easy to use, supports cube formula for further calculation and many more features.
