Mobile App Platform

Our platform gives you special powers to turn any business function into a mobile app.

Build your own business apps, code-free.

Create compelling mobile apps – without any code or programming – using the latest features from MicroStrategy Mobile. This video shows how easy it is to collaborate, annotate, and communicate information anytime, anywhere.

Device-independent.

Build once and deploy your new app to multiple devices and iOS and Android operating systems without any application-specific compilation or programming. Dynamic scaling, fit to page, fit to width, combined with pixel-perfect design templates empower any app designer to handle a broad range of operating system versions and aspect ratios.

Quick to develop.

The platform enables fast development through powerful engines, including: Analytical, Gesture Interpretation, Internationalization, Performance, Personalization, and Caching. Intuitive design tools demystify the app development process, enabling more people to build apps.

Easy to maintain.

All of the apps, your building blocks, and their underlying components are stored as "objects" within your centralized metadata. Different "objects" can easily be reused throughout and across apps, seeding app development. Any changes to an object are instantly reflected wherever that object is used, making enhancing and changing your apps both quick and easy.

Code-free.

Code-free design tools de-skill the app development process. App developers therefore require much less technical experience or training to start developing apps, lowering the cost of app development.

Rotation.

Extraordinary rotation support lets you decide what your users see in landscape and portrait views. There's no wrong way to hold your business information.

Accessibility.

As part of its comprehensive 508 compliance, MicroStrategy Mobile is integrated with voiceover capabilities for visually impaired users.

Part of an enterprise-class platform.

Our mobile app platform contains a suite of developer, administration, and server tools. Enterprise-tested and enterprise-class, these tools help deliver information to over a million people every day.

Combined together, these tools and capabilities provide you with your own App Factory.


Mobile BI so good
your CEO will use it.

Analytics.

Touch-optimized reporting, analysis, and monitoring enable companies to analyze the data stored across their enterprise, helping them to leverage insights that inform better business decisions.

Companies choose MicroStrategy for our ease-of-use, sophisticated analytics, and superior data and user scalability.

High performance.

64-bit architecture, in-memory BI, highly optimized SQL and linear scalability are some of the technologies enabling highly performant BI. Achieve “speed of thought” analysis—five seconds or faster for most ad-hoc queries.

User and data scale.

Efficiently scale from one user to millions, delivering high-performance queries, reporting and analysis. Next-generation caching, security, and clustering offer all users—internal and external—secure access to applications without degrading performance. Our customers have consistently analyzed substantially larger data volumes than customers of all other BI products, according to The BI Survey.

Dynamic data access.

Our dynamic data access engine is designed to access multi-dimensional databases (MDDBs or MDX sources) such as those from SAP Business Information Warehouse (SAP BW). MicroStrategy's Dynamic MDX Engine generates optimized MDX syntax that is fully certified with SAP BW using SAP’s high performance BAPI interfaces.

Offline access.

Securely store subscribed reports and dashboards locally on the device for offline analysis. When online, the app automatically downloads any available new and updated content.

Alerting.

Sign up for personalized alerts that leverage Apple’s Push Notification technology. If inventory is down at a specific store or a sales forecast is up for an entire region, receive an alert and an accompanying report, so you never miss a critical business opportunity.

Predictive analytics and data mining.

Use any number of built-in predictive functions, or import models from third-party data mining vendors. Embed strategic, predictive analytics and alerts into your app and workflows.
