Bottom Line

MicroStrategy provides a robust, holistic business view of enterprise data. Users do not need to understand databases, table structures, or query languages — just how to point and click. MicroStrategy’s workflow guides help users “drill” into detail as represented by their business model, not their database model. With drill anywhere capabilities, users can view summary- to detail-level data, with access to the entire breadth and depth of data contained in a database. MicroStrategy BI can help you run a more intelligent and more efficient business.
