* Upon receiving your MicroStrategy Analytics Suite license, and for a period of 60 days, one named support liaison from your company will be able to contact MicroStrategy technical support by email. Our support staff will reply with technical assistance within one business day. The user from your company that registers for MicroStrategy Analytics Suite will be automatically enabled as the first support liaison and can designate one additional contact and/or a replacement for themselves to be eligible for this email technical support. Note that email technical support will be available for 60 days from the initial registration, after which your company will be entitled only to online support unless standard technical support is purchased. Also note that this applies at the organization level, so if your company has previously registered for Evaluation or Suite software, your company may no longer be eligible to receive free email technical support.

How can I train my IT staff end users?

MicroStrategy Analytics Suite users have 24/7 free access to 200+ hours of online training, as well as the MicroStrategy forum where you can pose questions, share implementation experiences, and exchange best practices and valuable tips. Additionally, MicroStrategy's interface is intuitive and easy for even the most novice users. Instructor-led training is available for an additional fee and may be useful for IT staff and more advanced users, depending on their experience with BI software, IT staff and more advanced users may wish to build on their knowledge set with live, instructor-led courses and certifications. A perennial education pass costs $3,300/user per year and includes unlimited instructor-led courses.


What is the time restriction on the free licenses included?

Licenses of the MicroStrategy Analytics Suite are perpetual - there is no time restriction. Please make sure you activate your software within 30 days of installation, as prompted during installation, in order to safeguard your perpetual license.



With which systems does the free suite work?

The MicroStrategy Platform runs on Windows®, UNIX®, and Linux® operating systems. MicroStrategy is optimized for all major database platforms, web servers, and application servers. For a complete list of supported and certified environments for MicroStrategy Analytics Suite and its components, see the readme and release notes documentation included in the suite. Also see the MicroStrategy Analytics Suite quick start guide.


Is it a major IT initiative to install, develop, and deploy the software?

The MicroStrategy Analytics Suite is easy to install, and you can develop and deploy your first reports in less than a day. Email support for 60 days, online support, online training, a quick start guide, and extensive documentation are designed to ensure rapid and successful deployment.



Is it a major IT commitment to maintain the software?

The MicroStrategy Analytics Suite requires minimal IT maintenance. MicroStrategy customers are able to support enterprise-class BI applications that serve thousands of users with only a handful of dedicated BI staff. Low IT overhead is achieved with MicroStrategy's administration capabilities and centralized metadata, and the self-service design of MicroStrategy's intuitive web interface, as well as the "build once, deploy anywhere" ease and simplicity for mobile apps.


How can I expand beyond the first 10 users?

Beyond 10 users, you must first purchase Technical Support. See what you can add on for more details. If you require anything additional to the MicroStrategy Analytics Suite, contact us at an office near you, or chat online via the "live chat" on our site during standard business hours (8:30 AM - 5:30 PM U.S. Eastern Time).


What kind of reports can I create?

The MicroStrategy Analytics Suite enables state-of-the-art departmental reporting applications across all functional areas in all industries. With the MicroStrategy Analytics Suite, you will be able to quickly develop and deliver interactive operational and analytical reports that display tabular grids and beautiful graphs from your data, taking advantage of built-in analytics, visualization capabilities, and design-quality formatting. Furthermore, you will be able to consolidate all of these powerful capabilities through pixel-perfect dashboards. MicroStrategy Analytics Suite will also allow you to gain quick and deep insight from your data with highly compelling and interactive visualizations via self-service data exploration.


What kind of mobile apps can I create?

Virtually any application that your business needs can be designed and run with MicroStrategy Analytics Suite. For examples of the kinds of mobile BI apps possible, visit our mobile app gallery. The MicroStrategy Analytics Suite leverages all three core capabilities of mobile applications: business intelligence, transactions, and multimedia.


What kind of internationalization or localization is possible?

MicroStrategy's desktop and web interfaces can be displayed in English, Spanish, German, French, Korean, Japanese, Italian, Swedish, Portuguese, Chinese, Danish and Dutch. Users can personalize their view further, specifying how numbers and dates are formatted and which international character set should be applied to their reports. Additionally, MicroStrategy enables the concurrent deployment of a single application in multiple languages. This ensures that business users can view MicroStrategy interfaces, as well as their own reports, metrics, attributes, and data - essential business information - in their own language. On a related note, MicroStrategy also enables users to customize further the look and feel of the web and mobile interface application, changing color themes and navigation displays according to their preferences.



How can I ultimately migrate my departmental applications into an enterprise solution?

The MicroStrategy architecture is designed for application integration and scale. Departmental BI applications can be created and integrated into an enterprise-wide BI application using MicroStrategy. MicroStrategy's single shared metadata will contain all reports and underlying reporting objects, ensuring one version of the truth, as you grow and merge your departmental BI applications into a consolidated enterprise BI solution. Departments and workgroups will continue to have independent control over their reports within the enterprise BI environment.


Can we install the free suite on a multi-core or multi-processor machine?

Yes, MicroStrategy Analytics Suite can be installed on a server with multiple processors and multiple cores. But unless you have upgraded by purchasing technical support, your MicroStrategy Analytics Suite software has an affinity to a single core. See what you can add on for more details.


How can I expand capacity beyond 1 CPU?

Contact a MicroStrategy representative at an office near you or chat online via the "live chat" on our site during standard business hours (8:30 AM - 5:30 PM U.S. Eastern Time).


Will I have access to product upgrades?

Which data mining functions are included?

I see that MicroStrategy also offers a free software trial to evaluate MicroStrategy. How do the offerings compare?

Both offerings are free, but there are key differences. MicroStrategy Analytics Suite includes free, perpetual licenses of MicroStrategy software available for download in quantities appropriate to let your department start building and using reports quickly and easily.

MicroStrategy's Evaluation Edition includes all MicroStrategy products, but is a limited to a 30-day trial period. In July 2009, Evaluation Edition was also made available as a "virtual appliance" download.
