    Data Scalability and connectivity

    Single Re-useable Metadata

    SDK for customization and application integration


    Needs continued improvement in:

    Ease of use – Self-service analytics and data exploration, End-user report consumption and Time to develop reports

    User Interface and Visualization effectiveness – If it does not look good business will not use it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fantastic product. There is literally nothing this product can't do, provided you are willing to invest the time and resources towards mastering this product. Highly recommend MicroStrategy for Enterprise level usage and not for operational systems, where data is fairly unstructured.
