What’s New in MicroStrategy

The release of MicroStrategy 10 established a new standard for enterprise analytics, and our latest product updates build on this powerful platform. Discover the new features and enhancements that make it even easier to build and deploy transformative analytics and mobility applications.

10.8 Release

Easier to build Predictive Analytics, Machine Learning and AI applications.

MicroStrategy has made it easier than ever before to get started with R analytics. With MicroStrategy 10.8, both R and the R Integration Pack are bundled and installed as part of the Server, so you can start using R analytics in addition to native data mining capabilities to build sophisticated applications.

10.8 Release

New Data Connector Gallery

A new public gallery of data connectors is now available to customers and partners on the MicroStrategy Community. The library currently hosts a variety of custom connectors including connections to Alation, OneDrive, Box, Weibo, MuleSoft, ElasticSearch, and more. Developers who build their own custom connectors using the MicroStrategy Data Connector SDK can share their work with others on the MicroStrategy Community.

10.8 Release

Usher: Auto-Discovery and Inbox

With version 10.8, Usher Professional users now have a toggle to dynamically display a location-based list of Usher badge users. This tool lets users who want to monitor activity, such as security guards, visualize the traffic of Usher badge users in their vicinity. Another new feature, the Usher Inbox, gives badge users the ability to read and respond to messages sent by Usher Professional administrators, as well as view a log of past messages.

10.7 Release

Build your own connectors with the Data Connector SDK.

With the new Data Connector SDK, organizations can use standard web technologies, including JavaScript and HTML, to build custom connectors that can access data from any source that is not natively supported by the MicroStrategy platform. This includes Eloqua, Amazon S3, OneDrive, and much more.

10.7 Release

Smart data discovery with natural language generation (NLG).

Leverage the power of NLG to automatically transform charts and graphs into text descriptions that provide context and written interpretations of visualizations. MicroStrategy 10.7 certifies integrations with Automated Insights and Narrative Science, so end users can take advantage of NLG, regardless of their technical skillset.

Integrated QR Scanner with Usher
10.7 Release

Read any barcode or QR code with Usher.

The Usher Security badge client’s integrated QR scanner can now read non-Usher barcodes and QR codes (e.g., Aztec Codes). The scanning transaction can be stored in the Usher Server and linked to the user performing the scan, the time of the scan, and the location at which the scan took place (if Location Services are enabled). The barcodes and QR codes supported are those compatible with Apple’s AVFoundation or Google’s ZXing. This will serve as a convenient means of documenting a transaction or linking an Usher user and another person or object at a certain moment in time using an identity-centric and location-aware approach.

10.6 Release

Distribution of interactive dashboards.

MicroStrategy 10.6 makes it easy to share dashboard files with end users. These proprietary dashboard files are formatted for offline interactivity using MicroStrategy Desktop and immediately put analytics in the hands of the recipient. Schedule the delivery based on time, event, or threshold, and extend enterprise data discovery capabilities to more end users.

10.6 Release

Revamped PDF export.

Generate highly formatted PDF dashboards with support for maps, D3 and other custom visualizations, and HTML-formatted content. The new PDF engine intelligently formats large grid reports and multi-sheet dashboards into separate pages and supports PDF bookmarks, making it easy to share and read information.

10.6 Release

New mapping capabilities.

The new map visualization supports both Google and ESRI-based maps and delivers a consistent set of features across Desktop, Web, and Mobile interfaces. Plot multiple layers of information on the same map using various graphic styles such as markers, bubbles, density maps, areas, polygons, and more.

3rd Party Application
JSON Data API RESTful Server

Intelligence Servers
Data Sources
10.5 Release

Support for RESTful API’s.

MicroStrategy offers native support for RESTful APIs and provides access to data via the MicroStrategy Server in JSON format. Version 10.5 delivers further enhancements for the RESTful API, including advanced filtering capabilities. This enables users to quickly and easily embed MicroStrategy data in third-party clients, custom applications, and websites.

10.4 Release

New Work Fencing capabilities.

Optimize the use of server resources, increase performance, and ensure the highest quality of service to everyone in your organization by dedicating computing power to support specific users, user groups, or tasks. Users will never have to experience slow response times, and you can ensure high-volume batch processing and scheduled tasks run without any delays.

10.3 Release

Leverage custom visualizations with ease.

Go beyond standard charts and graphcs with easy access to custom D3 visualizations and Google Charts. In Version 10.3, business users can browse our visualization gallery and instantly incorporate new visualizations into their dashboards.
