Overall Satisfaction with MicroStrategy Analytics

Microstrategy Analytics is widely used in the company across all departments. Different level of access can be provided to different level of responsible persons. It is a very easy tool to get access of past data with different reports and presenting it with the help of variety of dashboard and VIs. Data collection and analysis is an essential function of it.
  • Data collection/data access- The tool uses different attributes and metrics to generate data for you in a required format with required filters.
  • Data Visualization- The tool has great function of creating Dashboards which are specially useful for higher management to review it.
  • Data Analytics- With great amount of functions, it does most of the excel work within itself. Eliminates excel in most of the fronts.
  • Better user interface- The only thing that comes out is there is a high scope of modifying user interface. Currently it is not as good as Tableau in terms of user interface.
Microstrategy is already used in the organization and it clearly is used by many leading industries. Tableau and Salesforce are comparatively new to this.
The range of data sources is pretty wide, it is practically using enormous amount of different sources. Platform is able to smoothly bring in multiple data sources simultaneously, combining, preparing, and transforming these as per business needs. It takes a definite time to update its values until its ETL process completes or it has to be done manually.
This capability really easy and handy to support especially if you have to provide limited access to virtual person or an intern. Data sharing and using inbuilt features are really easy and gives a lot of options. Subscriptions to reports and read/write capabilities are also helpful in terms of flexing up for modifications under reports.
Well suited for: Creating Dashboards- This can handle high amount of data that too good amount of data manipulation flexibility. Dashboards can be modified pretty quickly and addition of data is also easy. Mirroring same dashboards is also easy where new view can be created and can be saved. There are lot of other benefits as well in terms of accessing data easily.
