Overall Satisfaction with MicroStrategy Analytics

MicroStrategy Analytics is used by our finance and corporate executives to look at our company's financials from an analytical perspective. All of our sales information is aggregated into data sets that MicroStrategy can drill into for relatively up-to-date financial information. It is used for revenue and purchasing trending and other key business driver analysis.
  • Centralized dashboards.
  • Real-time data analytics.
  • Highly customizable, but easy to use out of the box.
  • Administration of the platform is time consuming.
  • Licensing cost is on the expensive side.
  • Incompatibilities between versions.
  • Delivers deeper and timelier business financial insights.
  • Able to aggregate large data sets very quickly to save analysts time.
  • Very stable platform for analytics.
We use several analytics tools at our company and MicroStrategy continues to be one of our most popular tools because of its ease of use and speed of pulling data. We have looked at tools like Dundas BI for specific use cases, but MicroStrategy seems to handle almost 100% of our use cases.

Yes

MicroStrategy Analytics is widely adopted at our company because it is so easy to use - so I would say that the overall usability is top-notch.
MicroStrategy's support is very good. We don't have a lot of technical issues in the first place, but when we do have to open a case with them, their front-line engineers seem very capable and resolve most of the issues without escalation. Our sales team is also very good and keeps us in the loop on new features and makes sure we are satisfied customers.
MicroStrategy Analytics is a very useful tool for a company of any size to get the most use out of their data that could be anything from financials to supply chain and ERP. It handles very large to smaller data sets with ease and speed.
