Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
This solution has allowed us to become a top-class competitor among other consulting companies.
It is a reliable solution for our needs.
The implementation was fairly straightforward.
The most valuable features are ad hoc reporting and the ability to create dashboards.
The whole repository side of things is beneficial because you develop it once, and you can use it anywhere, in the Enterprise grade.
It scales well. It used to have only a max of four I-servers, but I think recently, somewhere in version 10, they doubled that, so you can have eight I-servers now.
I have found the dashboard creating feature helpful.
It has allowed me to move my data to the cloud.
I would like to see a single standalone application to control everything from the administration perspective, and also to develop new applications.
This solution is missing enhanced features in the dashboards.
The product could be improved by adding additional visualization.
Another feature to consider in the future would be adding some additional offline capabilities without using desktops.
If you compare it with Power BI with the DAX language, it would be great to put that into MicroStrategy.
I don't think that they will, but I'd like to see parallel processing, scalable parallel processing.
They should improve the filters to create downloaded data by moving them to the top of the dashboard.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing is a bit high per user.
Pricing, in general, is high. With Power BI, you get mobile with the license, whereas with MicroStrategy, you have to purchase mobile for extra.
