Overall Satisfaction with MicroStrategy Analytics

MSTR is being used by approximately three departments w/in Casey's. We plan on having MSTR be an enterprise-wide solution
  • MSTR Analytics does visualization very well.
  • Ad-Hoc analysis
  • As w/ any tool - the data underneath MSTR has to governed and structured correctly to use in a self service environment
  • MSTR almost demands that you have an MSTR Administrator on staff to keep the semantic layer fresh
MSTR is suited for a well-governed, solid data environment. While I believe that MSTR, and the rest of BI as a whole, wants to move towards a more self-service business user environment - MSTR still needs a technical staff to support that self service
