International Post Corporation: Upgrading Quality and Service Performance for the Postal Industry.

IPC is a member organization, composed of 24 Postal Operators around the world. IPC supports members by monitoring their international traffic. IPC's mission is to help posts to reduce costs, increase revenues and enhance visibility. IPC has a critical role to play in helping operators evolve and securing a viable future for the postal sector. One of the key services offered by IPC is reporting on various levels (accounting purposes, performance, data quality, timeliness of data transmission, and others): these services are offered across the board to members. IPC decided to modernize its Enterprise Architecture across the board by, among others, introducing an Enterprise Data Warehouse and a BI solution. IPC has decided for MicroStrategy as its Enterprise BI solution, given the multiple advantages of the platform: object maintenance, mobile offering, ease of report implementation, among others. In this presentation, we would like to share our experience with the community.

Bringing the smart campus to life with Usher.

Collecting access data to different parts of the campus either virtually or physically not only generates an incredible amount of value but also is often completely underutilized. The generation and aggregation of this information is often referred to as identity intelligence. The reason identity intelligence is so underutilized is because it lives in different systems, in varying formats and is difficult to merge into a single view that is tied to a unique user. However, this data can be a virtual goldmine to generate actionable insight, which can be used to make more intelligence decisions to improve the experience for students, faculty and staff on campus.

East Coast Metal Distributors: Riding the Mobile Wave to Become a Data Driven Company.

Three and a half years ago, we attended MicroStrategy World. It was then that Michael Saylor gave a keynote address on the coming mobile wave in BI. We took that to heart and have made it the focus of our efforts at East Coast Metal Distributors. We are not your typical World presenter, we sell HVAC equipment.

Our goal is to bring comfort to peoples' homes and to be the supplier of choice for contractors across the Southeast. Before 2014, we had limited reporting capabilities and were reactive to customer trends. We wanted to become a proactive company and rolled out MicroStrategy Web to more than 40% of our company by September 2014.

We created mobile dashboards that have been called "best in class" by some and have seen usage skyrocket since April. Our usage went up to more than 62% via Mobile. East Coast is the embodiment of the dream of riding the mobile wave in order to truly become a data driven company.
