I agree with you Anurag. All BI applications must efficiently access terabytes of data. Average BI application query response times often range from 10 seconds to one minute or more, with query optimization relegated to the database. Microstrategy has a high performance and it delivers up to 10x faster query response time.

MicroStrategy is the best option for Business Intelligence needs of different organizations irrespective of their sizes mostly due to its enhanced features and capabilities (leading to great performance) as compared to other BI tools available in the market. Visualization is just one of the many features of this product.

Gunjan you should check the reports developed as I agree with all the comments and Microstrategy is tool which is capable of running queries on large databases. There are lot of best practices and tuning techniques in Microstrategy which I would suggest you should try to research. All in all the amount of Out of the box features provided by Microstrategy is not provided by any other tool that I am aware of.
In case you have any questions/queries I would be happy to assist. Feel free to reach out to me.
