Gartner Critical Capabilities for Analytics and BI Platforms Report

We’re thrilled to share that MicroStrategy scored highest in the majority of use cases for the second year in a row.

This companion piece to Gartner’s well-known Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms leverages customers’ and analysts’ opinions to evaluate products across a variety of key product capabilities. Unlike the Magic Quadrant, which evaluates all aspects of a vendor’s business, this Report evaluates only the vendors’ products and their capabilities.

MicroStrategy stands apart from 19 competitors, with top scores calculated against the complete list of vendors in the Magic Quadrant. It received the highest scores in these 4 use cases:

  • Top score in Agile, Centralized BI Provisioning (scoring 4.34 out of 5)
  • Top score in Governed Data Discovery (scoring 4.24 out of 5)
  • Top score in OEM or Embedded BI (scoring 4.64 out of 5)
  • Top score in Extranet Deployment (scoring 4.38 out of 5)

MicroStrategy also received the second highest score in Decentralized Analytics (scoring 4.23 out of 5).

We believe our scores in this Critical Capabilities report, as well as our position as the sole challenger in this year’s Gartner Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms, is a direct result of the strength of our platform and its comprehensive capabilities.
