Team was helpful, but implementation was slow

Implementation was slow, and it feels like we didn't get all of the necessary information. It was prematurely rolled out to the business, and we didn't get buy in. MSTR will continue to be a work in progress.

Successful implementation upon testing the process in lower tier first

White papers from MicroStrategy provided sufficient information for a version upgrade of the magnitude that we were undertaking; in our case moving from version 9.3.1 to 9.5.1. We upgraded our production environment on a Saturday with minimal hiccups and without the need to contact vendor support.

The experience was great. Implementation went very well.

Seamless implementation with a steep learning curve for developers.

Implementation was rather seemless however performance and customer expectations were a problem. We ended up having to upgrade from Oracle db to Netezza db in order to meet customer expectations. 3rd party consultants for report development created overly complex reports and were very expensive. MicroStrategy was given a reputation of being expensive and hard to use, something its still recovering from internally.

Architecture and Implementation is easy

I've used MicroStrategy at many clients, and it has always resulted in a great experience. Once you are educated on the metadata layer and how to architect the database, you can manipulate MicroStrategy to your benefits

Good Enterprise level reporting system, but true BI&A capabilities are limited

The tool looks to have potential for improvement. We are undergoing upgrade to 10.4 version. The current version is very "clunky" and not very intuitive. Looks like MicroStrategy rushed to get a BI add-on that can compete with Tableau, Power BI, etc. But this is no way close to the best tools out there. Need to rely heavily on the consultants and 3 rd party support. Difficult to learn on your own. Also the user community is limited in providing support.

Good BI Tool with friendly user interface

System is complex, but comes with broad functionalty

Implementation would have been more efficient if we understood our data needs better

The structure of the underlying data is still not optimal. We are learning as we go ways that it should have been done differently.

Low cost may indicate a short term vision, some people call it quick wins!

The implementaiton and scope was not very stright forward as the overall solution architecture was proposed by the 3rd party partner listing microsoft as the data warehouse and microstrategy as the front end BI anlytics tool, data sientist were appointed as well selecting one of the key transportaiton consultnat in the region a reason why the bid may got so interesting from an offering stand point and not really a technology defferenciation. low cost it worked cant complian however not at all the Big Data platform I was hoping for and so we end up starting a new Big Data platform project.

Enterprise-level scalability with proper vision in mind for the product

Mobile capabilities are extremely powerful than going with native iOS code. Web with lot of adhoc options for end users is quite user-friendly if proper user training is provided. Latest VI analytic desktop dashboards is good though not comparatively better than Tableau or Qlik - it has its own PLUS
