MicroStrategy Review

Low TCO and flexible. But licensing model is complicated.


Valuable Features:

I think the total cost of ownership is lower than other products, it is flexible and enterprise class.

Room for Improvement:

The licenses model is complicated. New features are slow to get to market (in comparison to other niche tools).

I would not agree with you more vicepres5211. They say that cheap is expensive and expensive is cheap. Although MicroStrategy is expensive, no other cheaper BI alternative tools can beat its capabilities and features. Therefore, it's cheaper in the long run despite initial expenses.

Licensing for on premise might be a bit complicated - agree. Cloud options looks much easier as they are different than the on premise ones. But the features and flexibility that you get with the product are really great !!
