Overall Satisfaction with MicroStrategy Mobile

Microstrategy Mobile App is mainly being used by the retail stores and the functional leads for the stores across the board. It is used to track real-time sales and inventory.
  • It is a stable platform (it does not generate errors or allow the user to go into an 'outside road') when using the application. It also provides very appealing and interactive ways to use the information. It leverages iOS functionality.
  • Web-based function allowing for flexibility and ease of access from varying locations.
  • Most of our experience is with iPad and it does a good job there, it gives us a lot of opportunity to WOW our internal leaders. The platform flexibility is a good selling point. Allows us to make changes without having to recompile and go to Apple every time we have an update.
  • More documentation of communication between the layers of the infrastructure so security discussions can better be facilitated.
  • Reloading the data when you reboot the server takes time depending on the infrastructure.
  • It can also be a bit slow due to the amount of data we have, but that's more of a data problem.
  • I have not been able to figure out how I can control table joins within reports, so I have to create free form SQL reports, which is messy to upkeep.
One of best business intelligence enterprise reporting tools, it has loads of rich features available to the business user with ease of use and advanced analysis in a single end-to-end solution. I like MicroStrategy's simplicity in creating complex multi-pass SQL reports, visualizations over varied data sets, and the breath of areas in which the product can be used. I like mostly everything. I think there are some remaining improvements that could be done in the area of data visualization.
