What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ease of development in MicroStrategy. For example, we can treat URLs as objects, which is very easy to use for end-users, business analysists, or other professionals. Anyone can find it very easy to develop. The number and type of different settings that can be used for optimizing pulled data are valuable. For example, if a report is taking a lot of time to… more»

What needs improvement?

The documentation of how to make different connections to different databases needs to be more centralized. It becomes confusing when we have to search for this information on Google and elsewhere. I would like to see more clarity with respect to the cloud integration because it is a hot topic right now.

What other advice do I have?

I'd say if any user or any set of users are looking to get more insights from the raw data that they have collected over the course of years, one of the best BI tools in terms of analytics and data management would be MicroStrategy. You can develop pretty much everything from scratch. If you are looking to get more meaningful information out of data, I would recommend this solution. From an… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features would probably be the self-service and the dossier components as well as the hyper-intelligence.

What needs improvement?

I think they are working on improvements and are in the process of changing the development to be more GUI-based rather than code-based. I think that will be good, we're waiting for that transition. I… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I can't comment on setup cost but we pay an annual maintenance fee and that includes support and upgrades.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously used Microsoft Reporting Services and SharePoint. We switched because I think the self-service component was a very big factor for us as well as the data governance component which was… more»

What other advice do I have?

There are a lot of visualization tools, but not many enterprise BI tools. If you are going to run an enterprise shop for a big organization, don't pick the small tools designed for small team… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Prior to purchasing we had a look at QlikView, at Microsoft Business Intelligence, and we looked at Tableau.

How has it helped my organization?

Usher has improved the way to exploit and analyze data.

What needs improvement?

The pricing needs improvement, it need to lower prices per user to make it more accessible. In terms of new features, I'm not sure what can be improved. I need to do more… more»

There is a free desktop version that provides powerful self-service analysis, I really recommend it.

What is most valuable?

The dashboard, documentation, dossiers are all valuable features.

What needs improvement?

There are many features that have been suggested by the community that aren't in place yet. The solution needs a Top 10 reports, for example. Right now, we have to apply many workarounds for the solution to do what we need it to do. There are a lot of bugs. In the future, I would love to see machine… more»

What other advice do I have?

I do find I need to use a lot of workarounds and reach out to the community a lot to ask questions. The company I work with is small, so we don't require too much strength from the solution. I would definitely recommend the solution to others. I'm still working with MicroStrategy and want to grow… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated both Tableau and Power BI before ultimately choosing this solution. They're good competitors to this technology.

What is most valuable?

The hyper-intelligence is the solution's most valuable feature. The dashboard is user-friendly. Users don't have to log in to the system to see the reports. That's a very good advantage of the solution.

What needs improvement?

In the dossier section, they have something called documents, which is very good, but they are implementing something called dossiers also. If we compare it with the BI tools like Tableau, the canvas which MicroStrategy provides is not that great. The formatting options are limited is dossiers. In… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are using Power BI as well, but MicroStrategy is implemented at the enterprise level. Which solution we use depends on the project requirements.

What other advice do I have?

We're using the cloud deployment model. I very strongly recommend the solution. I'd rate nine out of ten.

What needs improvement?

The user interface needs improvement. It needs to be more intuitive. The solution needs to enhance its integration servers. The requirements needed to deploy the solution could be improved.

What other advice do I have?

We use the cloud deployment model and use both Microsoft as well as AWS as providers. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
