MicroStrategy Pros

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.

Data writeback, and on-the-fly predictive analysis results from R and Python could be improved.
With Cube partition (v10.1 and above) scalability has not been an issue, but the Cube publish time, and temporary space consumption while the Cube is being published, has almost doubled during implementation of Cube partition.

If you compare it with Power BI with the DAX language, it would be great to put that into MicroStrategy.

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.
