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.

Version 10.x is really powerful

N/A

I've been testing the latest version 10 and it is really good, it has new features to create dashboards in an easy and quickly way more similar to what the market for self service BI is requiring

Pros

Good design, easy to use, development is really fast letting you select the data and object that you want to visualize and therefore just create a dashboard within seconds.

Cons

The best is to have a well designed data model first or a data warehouse to pull the data and just do some of the latest transformation with the tool, that way you can get the most of it.

Advice to Others

Definetiley a good competitor in this sector, I like the responsive design, mobility and ease of use they have enhanced in this versions I tested.

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

Likes Least

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".

Insight into operations and licensing without needing the internal data warehouse knowledge

Pros

The software is very easy to use with an uncluttered interface and generating reports is a breeze. The option to share and schedule reports helps to be on top of business, across multiple users and teams.

Cons

The app could use some UI modernization. A mobile app to look at reports and dashboards would be great.

Using this tool, to learn and get into enterprise analytics was fun. The free desktop version also allowed folks to analyze excel and other data sources. this gave them some useful utility to look their own data and seeing trends.

Pros

quick to learn and start using from no experience. The videos on you-tube also helped pickup some of the concepts. The free desktop tool, also had a good guide and videos to get started.

Hello, Microstrategy is a great tool for Business Intelligence. Many years after the beginning of the company, they knew how to follow up their product.
Best product in terms of self-service bi, vizualization, reporting and scalability !
We've tested a lot of reporting tools ( BO, Qkvw, Tableau, Oracle) but none of them are better on the full list of functionalities of Microstrategy.

Pros

Number of functionnalities compared to challenger

Cons

Before the v10, Microstrategy was late on specific topics but now they did the good investment for the future.

Advice to Others

Good strategy, good visibility and very strong product, happy to be a Microstrategy customer.
