MicroStrategy ONE Update 11


Introducing MicroStrategy AI for automatic answers, dashboard creation, app design, and SQL generation.


Who is Auto?

Introducing Auto. The new virtual AI assistant that’s up for any challenge. Designed to embed into any app, website, or portal, the Auto AI chatbot enhances UX and amplifies existing analytics capabilities with artificial intelligence. Based on advanced large language models (LLMs) and carefully designed prompt engineering, Auto accelerates data exploration, automates app or dashboard design, and offers tools for SQL generation and predictive forecasting. It’s simple, conversational AI for revolutionary decision-making.

What is trusted AI?

MicroStrategy delivers the power of AI with the precision of BI. As the market leader in large-scale AI apps, we focus on object reusability and data integrity at scale. The reliability of the results from the Auto AI chatbot is rooted in the  MicroStrategy semantic layer and its robust security model. Auto strictly utilizes data sourced from MicroStrategy and applies dataset or user security configurations. All calculations and operations are executed by the MicroStrategy analytical engine for accurate and secure data processing.

Discover how to overcome key challenges in AI and BI integration, harness the power of Semantic Graphs, and leverage prompt engineering for data-driven decisions.


Do more. With less. Auto AI.

Designing dynamic apps with an AI-centric approach.


Get answers to all your data questions in seconds with AI 

Change how users interact with and explore their data. Using artificial intelligence, the AI assistant suggests questions based on the current dashboard display and underlying datasets. As the user types their question to the chatbot, the autocomplete function identifies relevant objects from the dataset, simplifying the query process. In addition to providing answers in natural language, Auto pairs responses with visualizations for clarity. The AI answers may also provide further data analysis, including trend analysis, forecasts, or a breakdown of key data drivers depending on the question. 


More creative and efficient dashboard design with AI

Provide a simple method for data visualizations and dashboards. Upon selecting a dataset, users receive AI-based analysis recommendations related to their data. This increases productivity for analysts, allowing them to build content in seconds. If users wish to ask their own questions, they can specify them, and Auto will create a new page to provide answers. This combination of automated suggestions, user-driven customization, and enhanced interactivity enables faster building that matches specific requirements. 


Simplify the complexity of SQL with conversational AI

Using AI, this feature facilitates database interaction by translating natural language into SQL queries. Users can input questions in everyday language, and AI converts them into corresponding SQL queries. This tool reduces the need for extensive SQL knowledge, making data more accessible to users with varying expertise. If users want to understand the conversion process, the AI explains of the generated SQL in straightforward terms, helping users grasp the logic behind their data queries.

Anticipate market trends faster and optimize future strategy

Time Series Forecasting is a technique that allows businesses to estimate future trends based on past data patterns. It analyzes data points collected over sequential time intervals to detect patterns, trends, and variances. Using machine learning (ML) algorithms and conversations with the AI chatbot, this feature extracts insights from data to facilitate strategy formulation, resource allocation, and opportunity identification. The forecasting analysis reduces the time and effort previously needed for manual analysis.


Pinpoint critical factors behind performance metrics

Identify primary factors affecting specific outcomes. It focuses on individual variables to assess their impact on a designated metric. Powered by the AI chatbot and statistical methods, the tool gives users an interface to identify the main driving factors in their datasets. Suitable for roles like marketing managers, customer experience specialists, or supply chain analysts, this feature goes a level deeper and hones in on the real factors that might shape strategy and ultimately optimize return on investments.  


Track and highlight the top emerging trends to stay ahead 

Allow analysts to identify upward or downward patterns in historical data. It examines data points over consecutive time intervals to identify consistent linear tendencies compared to short-term variations. Using statistical techniques, Linear Trend Analysis offers an interface to detect and comprehend continuous trends in datasets. Designed for data scientists, operational leaders, or sales executives, trend analysis lets you gauge market trends, adjust approaches, and set long-term objectives with a strong data foundation. 

Rethinking productivity for good


Integrate live data insights directly into presentation slides 

Streamline data insights and reporting with the MicroStrategy PowerPoint Add-In. Rather than spin up multiple reports or presentations, create one version and with one click refresh as needed—monthly, quarterly, or on-demand. Users can directly integrate live data into PowerPoint slides, see updates in real time, and share the slides to let others refresh the data, all while maintaining accuracy for all global users. Import a single visualization or a group of visualizations into a PPT design. Even better, you can combine components from multiple dashboards into a single presentation.
