Typical BI tools fall sort in the following areas: (1) they depend entirely on APIs to pull data, limiting what data they can pull from a particular system (2) they do not join/blend the data from two or more systems, making aggregation in such cases impossible (3) they do not allow customization of the schema (structure of tables) which limits the type of reports you can generate (4) they do not connect to all sources, and they certainly are of no help if you have data in spreadsheets or homegrown software systems (5) there is a steep learning curve to master the tool.
