MicroStrategy Review

I like the dashboards, reports and filters. There isn't a proper mechanism to define proper KPIs, collaboration or analysis of numeric data separately.

What is most valuable?

  • Dashboards
  • Documents
  • Reports
  • Filters

How has it helped my organization?

Working as a BI Consultant, I have to develop different analyses, reports and dashboard documents to analyze the status of different business measures. We are using OBIEE and MicroStrategy for the purpose of enterprise performance management by defining and describing different business perspectives and objectives, initiatives and results are analyzed on the basis of these defined attributes.

What needs improvement?

There are limited features available for the overall enterprise performance management and analysis. There isn't a proper mechanism to define proper KPIs, collaboration or analysis of numeric data separately.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using it for six months to a year.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Sometimes there is an issue of font size, spacing and other related formatting document issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We've experienced no issues with performance. However, the larger amount of number of selectors, filters etc. you have, the longer it will take to display an analysis.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's been able to scale for our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?
