MicroStrategy delivered a product that helped companies accelerate the speed and productivity of their businesses by building mobile apps that connect to back-end transactional systems and databases. (MicroStrategy Transaction Services in MicroStrategy 9.2.1) Users of mobile apps and web-based dashboards could submit orders, make one-click approvals and denials, take notes for tracking and directing business activity, and write-back to data sources. Using either SQL for database transactions, or XML for web services applications, thousands of user transactions are stored, triggering new business processes, reallocating resources, and accelerating business activity. An earlier version of the transaction-based product was introduced in 2000.
Also in 2011, MicroStrategy broke the 100,000 user barrier with only 32 CPU cores.
MicroStrategy unveiled the first cloud-based service to enable rapid, cost-effective development of BI and mobile apps, leveraging hundreds of thousands of terabytes of data and scaling to hundreds of thousands of users. (MicroStrategy Cloud)
