MicroStrategy Room for Improvement

The Dossier feature needs improvement. 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. Some of the features that are in the developer should be moved into the web application. There are some filtering capabilities on dynamic dates that are not easy to use in the Dossier. There are features such as transformations that are harder to achieve than in the Data Studio. This is an area that needs some improvements. I would like to have Hyper Intelligence that is free to use without a special license. For mobiles, it should be easier to achieve without having to have a special license. Not everyone can afford to have a license for mobile and a separate license for the developer and the web. Also, I would like to see something more in data mining and predictive analysis. In order to be able to build them, you need to have special skills. It would be easier to achieve, with some plugins, or some tutorials in place to help. View full review »

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. MicroStrategy is a complex tool and you need to have a MicroStrategy architect. In the next release, I would like to see better visualization and more service audience or functionality.

It is essential to have a good project partner in the beginning with MicroStrategy to be able to use their full potential. It is not a work tool that can be controlled in 2 days (triggers, attributes, derived metrics, transformations, etc) but I can assure you that there has not been any project that you have tried with MicroStrategy that has not been a success.

The solution lacks good visualization. They should work on the user interface to make it more slick and modern. They could improve the maps they have on offer. There needs to be more customization in the SQL engine. The technical support on offer could be better. View full review »

The product could be improved by adding additional visualization. Also, another feature to consider in the future would be adding some additional offline capabilities without using desktops. In addition, continued development of mobile reporting. View full review »
