Comments: Being able to handover a report to our accounts that gives insides on all data processing from beginning to end with all transforms documented in a very good fashion

Pros: The abbility to document allmost any feature within the MS BI/SQL Server stack, allowing us to anwser allmost any question about our control and data flows for example

Cons: The way the software has to be used, as in single user mode. If you're in a team we all share responsibilities for runnijng certain types of features of the Workbench. With the current licensing model it's not a very friendly way to force organizations to use the Workbench

Valuable addition to SQL admin and data warehouse dev toolbox.

Pros: Pre-built configurable task items save a lot of development time (Task Factory). The documentation tool (DocXpress) and best practices analyzer are worth the price on their own.

Cons: While support is very good, the documentation of the tools is very lacking. Many of the Help pages and videos are non-existent or out-of-date.
