Our primary use case for MicroStrategy is reporting, including sales, marketing, operational, and financial. We use it for all of our lines of business. 

What is most valuable?

The tool I find the most valuable is MicroStrategy Architect. I use it for schematic modeling. It is scalable and integration-friendly. 

What needs improvement?

MicroStrategy should become more user friendly. It should behave more like Tableau. 

I would personally like to see more narrowcast features.

I have been using MicroStrategy for six years.

The initial setup was complex because of the nature of the product. It has multiple components. It takes 12 hours to deploy.
