Only a decade ago, having a BI tool in the company was optional. Nowadays, choosing the right BI tool for your company plays a pivotal role.
Over the last couple of months, we hosted 2 Webinars dedicated to MicroStrategy with 150 attendees overall, many of which use other analytical tools, such as Power BI, Cognos, Qlik, and Oracle OBIEE.
In one of the Webinars, titled “From Hyperintelligent to Hyperproductive”, we focused on one of the most groundbreaking new features of the platform, HyperIntelligence, which allows users to optimize processes on any web-based application without a single click – the technology is also known as zero-click analytics. Not only does this work for your web browser, emails, and online forms, it practically works with any web-based application, including other BI platforms – such as Tableau, Power BI, or Qlik, where HyperIntelligence sits on top of the existing platform.
In the second Webinar, “The Art of Analytics”, we covered a more general overview and new additions to the existing features, like MicroStrategy Dashboards, including Dossiers and Library, which allow for quick visualization and easy sharing with other users.
After the Webinars, our Webinar participants filled out a survey that showed that many companies are still struggling with old challenges and that MicroStrategy can propose a fast solution to those problems.
More than 53% of participants claim that they have too many reports to switch between and thus lose a lot of time, 84% of respondents draw data from various sources and not just from their analytical tool, and more than half do not trust the data coming from their BI tools.
Gartner recently named MicroStrategy “The only enterprise-ready Business Intelligence platform on the market”. The suite of features MicroStrategy proposed in its latest platform release boost all of your in-house BI tools and streamline your business.
The survey we conducted shows that the majority finds HyperIntelligence extremely beneficial for their company, mostly because of its ease of use and the ability to deploy it in every corner of the company. It is used in sales, marketing, project management, HR and finance departments across industries.
Other answers include Responsive design, which comes in handy for mobile users and centralized metadata and security, one of the top priorities of the company.
Here are some of the reasons to deploy MicroStrategy:
Let’s take a look at an example of good practice, we mention the SIJ Group, which switched from an outdated environment in Oracle OBIEE to MicroStrategy and optimized 180 reports. Other benefits of switching to MicroStrategy include:
