    Founded in 1989, MicroStrategy is a global leader in business intelligence (BI) technology. MicroStrategy software enables leading organizations worldwide to analyze the vast amounts of data stored across their enterprises to make better business decisions. The MicroStrategy platform delivers actionable information to business users via the web and mobile devices, including the iPad, iPhone, and BlackBerry.
    The best business decisions are driven by data. World class organizations operationalize business intelligence and embed analytics in their DNA. The MicroStrategy Business Intelligence platform gives businesses solutions to their entire query, reporting and advanced analytical needs and distributes insight to users via web, wireless and voice. MicroStrategy supports a full range of analytic functionality, from stunning business dashboards to sophisticated statistical analysis and data mining. It gives flexibility to start small and seamlessly scale to an enterprise deployment.
    MicroStrategy’s BI platform, known for its ability to access big data, can help companies uncover and leverage rich consumer insights from large volumes of data. Visual Insight, a new data exploration feature of the MicroStrategy platform, will be showcased in Monte Carlo. With Visual Insight, business people can uncover data insights in less than 30 minutes using highly interactive data visualizations, and without any support from IT.
    MicroStrategy is the platform that combines the analytics and interactivity of Dashboards 2.0 with the immediacy of real-time operational dashboards, ensuring that decision-makers can spot, analyze, and react to quickly changing trends and outliers. It react to emerging trends and resolve issues as they occur. It take action directly from your dashboard. It get realtime feedback on your decisions.
    Unlike a traditional multidimensional OLAP (MOLAP) architecture, which supports summary level reporting, MicroStrategy’s relational OLAP (ROLAP) architecture allows users to "drill anywhere" in the entire relational database, all the way down to transactional-level detail. MicroStrategy has optimizations for all major relational database and data warehouse vendors and can also access multidimensional databases and flat files. While many BI vendors offer full-featured solutions, MicroStrategy’s ROLAP architecture and integrated metadata are key differentiators.
    The MicroStrategy platform uses a single common metadata for consistency and streamlined maintenance. MicroStrategy’s 64-bit architecture supports in-memory analytics with “Intelligent Cubes” (i.e. OLAP reports cached in memory as data sets). Metrics and attributes are created once and used across different types of reports. Changes are made in one place and all related reports are automatically updated. Similarly, security permissions are granted in one place, reducing administration costs.
    Microstrategy’s in-memory BI capability only got serious with Microstrategy 9, which was released in Q1 of 2009. In particular, Microstrategy 9 was the first time in-memory BI had full security.
