In-Memory Business Intelligence
MicroStrategy's in-memory technology is engineered to meet the increased demand for higher BI performance. MicroStrategy OLAP Services accelerates performance by pre-calculating computations and placing the results into its in-memory acceleration engine to dramatically improve real-time query performance.
Performance, Everywhere, at Scale
In-memory BI provides a sub-3 second response time for most predictable queries, and sub-5 second response times for most Ad-hoc queries. Breaking these speed barriers makes a huge difference to user adoption and is frequently mentioned in industry analyst research as one of the top 5 reasons for successful valuable applications. Research among MicroStrategy customers reveals faster speeds are routinely possible, down to sub-second response times, with a little tuning. Furthermore, the shifting of load from database to memory means that the queries that eventually run against the database are on average smaller, have a shorter queue, and will also run faster.
Everyone Loves Analysis at the Speed of Thought
In-memory BI means a greatly improved user experience. Not only is everything so much faster, but the additional flexibility and analytical capabilities are massively valuable, providing ever greater levels of self-service BI to all the users of the application. BI administrators and developers love the single set of powerful MicroStrategy management and development tools for in-memory BI as they provide such flexibility and control over the deployment, lifecycle, and security of in-memory resources.
Why spend advanced and sometimes expensive database capacity on simple repetitive tasks? In-memory BI is faster and better suited for that, and cheaper as well. Delay your next database capacity upgrade by offloading work from the database and run the work on the cheaper and more controllable MicroStrategy middle tier.
Plug and Play with Intelligent Cubes
In-Memory BI with MicroStrategy has an exceptionally fast time to value. It is easily implemented as a plug-in service to MicroStrategy Intelligence Server so MicroStrategy applications of all types can benefit. The MicroStrategy platform is uniquely suited to provide better in-memory BI with Intelligent Cubes because of the advanced single enterprise metadata, which permits a scientific approach to applying in-memory BI resources to where they will provide the greatest speed and cost savings.
Broadly Beneficial Dynamic Sourcing
MicroStrategy's unique Dynamic Sourcing feature means In-Memory benefits are felt immediately by all users, regardless of which interface or reports they use. Dynamic Sourcing is only possible because MicroStrategy Intelligence Server has a unique ROLAP engine at its core. Every query request can be analyzed in microseconds for In-Memory benefits, and directed to an automatic use of In-Memory Intelligent Cubes, cube-to-cube drilling, and automatic full drill-out with MicroStrategy's great ROLAP access to the complete data model.
