MicroStrategy Version 10

Microstrategy experience

Very well for rapid development and self service reporting but visual sight should be better

MicroStrategy Version 10

Technology drives unrealistic expectations...

Delivery from POC / Proof of value into mainstream production has been a challenge. Partly due to the vendor but in the main due to the internal IT / Infrastructure challenges. The issue here is the expectations set at the outset both by the vendor and the team that did the initial assessment

MicroStrategy Version 10

need to advance more into analytics of the data

Good at making data visualizations.

MicroStrategy Version 10

Version 10 narrowed gap with competitors but a year later it is already lagging behind...

With version 10 Microstrategy closed the historical gap with Tableau and other products, however, it appears that the innovation has slowed down and the gap is re-appearing. In terms of the infrastructure, Microstrategy is still complicated to use given their construct of Documents versus Dashboards. Their product marketing is confusing as well - the desktop product has been renamed so many times that it is hard to tell whether it is Visual Insight or Desktop. One of the benefits of using Microstrategy is pixel perfect views for customers, however, this requires using Documents and not Dashboards. The inherent complexity is high when you try to have multiple panels that are connected for cross-filtering. Usability of other tools seen during BI bake off seems much more intuitive.

Modernizing to be on par with the competition

We were on MicroStrategy version 9.x for a long time. While on 9.x competitors such as Qlik and Tableau have become increasingly attractive to our business users due to ease of use and strong visualization capabilities. Version 10.4 should allow us to take advantage of more modern functionality within our current implementation and take advantage of our investment in MicroStrategy.

MicroStrategy Version 10

Great product but not changing as per time

Great!!!

MicroStrategy Version 10

Implementation was simple but we need more enhancements

They are working to provide a good support to our existing needs but they need to be more proactive rather than reactive.

MicroStrategy Version 10

still takes time to get the data correct and MSTR doesn't help there

Hard to engage the vendor once the sale is complete.

MicroStrategy Version 10

Standard reporting tool, but needs to provide additional visualization features

Vendor experience was strong. Visualisation capabilities of the tool need improvement to compete with Tableau and other newer technologies.

MicroStrategy Version 10

Infrastructure is in, but no reports have been written.

The largest issue that we have faced in the hosted environment is access to the machines. We have very limited access to the servers, and have to rely on the microstrategy support. Normal issues are resolved quickly, but more complex issues take longer and require coordination to resolve.
