We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"This solution has allowed us to become a top-class competitor among other consulting companies.""It's user-friendly, also the MTDI cube is a very good approach, as it helps you to use the pre-format instead of using the standard objects from the schema of MicroStrategy.""This solution is the most scalable BI platform in the world.""The solution has excellent features available on mobile.""The technical support is quite good.""I haven't come across any bugs.""The dashboard features and functionalities that come through the MicroStrategy Suite are the most valuable. It can be used by end users with minimum knowledge of the product. They can run a report or create a dashboard on their phones, which is kind of cool.""It is very stable."

More MicroStrategy Pros »

"We can generate various graphs, various reports and we can mainly use it for dashboard related things. We can create a dashboard with live data and we can make decisions based on this information,""This solution has improved our organization by making our analysis results available to customers.""The drag-and-drop dashboard builder is an intuitive interface for building dashboards from source reports.""The drag and drop UI has been the most useful to me.""All the necessary information is available to everyone in real time.""The UI is very easy to use, with drag and drop self-service analytics.""The most valuable features are the mobility and web integration.""This tool not only allows for consumption of the data in a visual way, but also allows the user to modify the question to get new answers."

Cons
"I would like to see a single standalone application to control everything from the administration perspective, and also to develop new applications.""In the developer, there are things that you able to do in a document or a report that you are not able to do in the Dossier.""They need to do a better job In its ability to allow end users to produce their own reports, metrics, and self-service business intelligence.""The solution lacks good visualization. They should work on the user interface to make it more slick and modern.""The solution's reports are not very flexible.""They should provide more tutorials and include some project files.""It crashes multiple times for even small changes that I make on the fly in the dashboard. After doing all the necessary changes, the MicroStrategy desktop or even the web version kicks the users out, and all the changes are lost. This functionality is buggy in MicroStrategy. It is hard to keep track of all the changes that I have done before. I don't want to make copies of each change that I have made because I would end up creating a hundred dashboards. It is not feasible in a real environment. I haven't worked on integrating MicroStrategy with the cloud. I am not sure how it behaves in the cloud, but I have heard from a few of my friends that there are some hiccups when you kind of sync to the cloud through MicroStrategy.""They should give proper industry-based tutorials so that one can learn it easily and implement it based on the requirements. They should give more MMP files so that we can import a whole project altogether and learn from that project."

More MicroStrategy Cons »

"I would like for it to be more of a plug and play with all of the tools and sources. It would make it much easier to use.""A valuable improvement for this solution would be the enabling of us to host dashboards for our customers.""This solution would be improved by adding some Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Deep Learning (DL) components that are easier to interpret and design.""The only thing I would say that comes up is that sometimes it can be a bit buggy.""The next version should include more standard integrations.""Advanced graphs or visualizations must be in the built-in product, instead of building with open API extensions or mashups.""I would like to have support for table formats without having to use an extension.""The product could be improved by implementing a user-feedback ranking system."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have a license with packages, and there are additional costs for extra components.""We have one of the best pricing available, but we can't disclose that information.""The pricing is fair.""They can improve its licensing. It is a bit expensive as compared to Microsoft and other tools.""They offer yearly as well as perpetual licenses."

More MicroStrategy Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Licensing is quite good, easy, but slightly expensive.""Licensing can start to get expensive, but compared to other tools in this space it is about average.""QlikSense offers a Hybrid environment architecture, which is very cost effective based on where the enterprise data resides.""Qlik Sense and its pricing model can follow any scalability.""The license mechanism of Qlik is quite complicated and not exchangeable. Such as 2016, they charge licenses by token, 1500$ for a token / 1 user. 2018: they change to 2 kinds of licenses: professional 1500$ / user, analyzer 800$ / user. 2019: they support subscription with 70$ Monthly for professional, 40$ monthly for analyzers, but for those you’re using perpetual licenses, they don't support acquiring more subscription licenses. The maintenance fee yearly are also high, 20% of the perpetual license."
