Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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.""The product is very mature. It's quite robust and an excellent enterprise-level solution."

Cons
"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.""The learning curve is quite steep."

"If a user leaves your organization, you shouldn't lose the visibility of all of the records.""Better pricing would make it available to more users and we would likely use it more broadly within the organization."

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.""It is expensive. We would like to extend it to many users, but we are currently restricting that because the cost is a constraint. If we are given a chance, we would love to expand it."
