MicroStrategy Analytics Software


 

The MicroStrategy Analytics platform is a self-service business intelligence platform that supports both data mining and visualization. Available for Web-based or on-premise deployment, this platform can be implemented on a gradual and as-needed basis, so users can start small and scale to enterprise-level deployment overtime.

This platform supports interactive dashboards that combine the functionality of multiple applications, including dashboards that can monitor markets and company portfolios, conduct risk analyses and correlate real-time data analysis with information from news and social media.

The desktop version of MicroStrategy Analytics is free, while the enterprise version is priced on a metered (for cloud-based deployment) or named-user basis. The mobile version is priced on a named-user and CPU core basis.

The technology is great. Even though this is one of the legacy BI vendors, their technology has kept up with the newer vendors.

The support has been slow for the past year or so.

Recommendations

If money is not an issue, MicroStrategy should be seriously considered. The features it offers are among the most complete. If simple reporting is needed, MicroStrategy may be too expensive. The problem is, reporting usually gets more sophisticated as time goes by, and sometimes it's hard to predict how complex it will get from the beginning. If your company needs for instance, language support, some of the new tools like Birst need you to manuallly do translations by duplicating projects. If you are also concerned about a centralized approach and reliable security, performance and scalability, MicroStrategy is the way to go.

This software is loaded with features/functionality; I don't think I've run into anything that it just can't do. Their training and user forums are also extremely helpful.

Likes Least

Very steep learning curve for administration/development and requires very knowledgeable support staff to get and keep it going. I think that is to be expected with such a complex product however for a smaller company it can present challenges.

Recommendations

It seems like it is great for either very small organizations that want to maybe just use some of the basic functionality/cloud version or large organizations with a team that can be well-trained and dedicated to support/maintenance. If you don't have people you can dedicate to send to the training (which was free for us) and to work with it on a regular basis then purchasing this software may be "biting off more than you can chew".
