Overall Satisfaction with MicroStrategy Analytics

We use MicroStrategy to provide a business intelligence solution for our clients. We use it to create reports and dashboards that our clients can use to analyze their business.
  • Customized dashboards between the desktop and web applications.
  • Shared objects which allows reusability in a number of different reports.
  • Web tool still doesn't have all the customization possible in the developer application.
  • Rigid star scheme requirements creates complications in unstructured data.
  • I would love to see out of the box "what-if" scenario functionality.
It can be done and seems to work pretty well. I haven't used this feature extensively. Works great with our data warehouse.
Easy to email or send a link. Also allows an export to PDF.
Great if you have a data warehouse built as a star schema. Less useful with unstructured data.
