Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence.

MicroStrategy positioned as a Leader in the 2014 report.

MicroStrategy positioned in 'Leaders' quadrant of Gartner's 2014 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms Report. The evaluation is based on completeness of vision and ability to execute.

According to Gartner, the dominant theme of the market in 2013 was that data discovery increasingly continued to be a mainstream BI and analytic architecture and is most valuable when seamlessly combined with governed enterprise business intelligence. Furthermore, Gartner believes that by 2015, enterprise buyers of BI platforms will predominantly purchase platforms that support both strong and broad business-user-accessible data discovery capabilities and IT-driven enterprise features for data reuse, governance, security and scalability. "By 2016, 25% of net-new BI and analytics platform deployments will be in the form of subscriptions to cloud services."

MicroStrategy positioned as a leader.

Gartner describes leaders as "Leaders are vendors that are strong in the breadth and depth of their BI platform capabilities, and can deliver on enterprise-wide implementations that support a broad BI strategy. Leaders articulate a business proposition that resonates with buyers, supported by viability and operational capability to deliver on a global basis. Smaller vendors, which may lack strong scores for geographic or vertical/industry strategy, may still be Leaders due to the strength of their market understanding, capabilities and road maps (to enable business users more easily to find relevant insights in data), market momentum, and excellent execution on key product, customer and sales experience measures."

At MicroStrategy, we have reinforced our enterprise-scale pedigree with innovations in visual exploration, dashboards, big data and business analytics. We have also embraced cloud BI as a strategic differentiator and are delivering a renewed set of solutions where Cloud Platform may become a game changer for the company.
