Big Data

Build analytical applications that leverage Big Data and Hadoop distributions.

The MicroStrategy platform empowers organizations to build applications that leverage big data and Hadoop distributions. All of the major Hadoop distributions are certified to work with MicroStrategy, and once connected, data stored in Hadoop becomes just like any other data source.

Users can connect using Hive, Pig, or proprietary SQL-on-Hadoop connectors like Cloudera, Impala, or IBM BigInsights.

The MicroStrategy Big Data Engine can natively tap into HDFS, generating schema on-read and making Hadoop suitable for ad-hoc querying. It also enables parallel loading of data from HDFS, resulting in high performance data loading.

MicroStrategy's native connectivity saves users from the tedious process of ETL from HDFS to Hive and helps to overcome the ODBC overhead associated with Hive.

MicroStrategy's Data Wrangling capability lets users cleanse and refine their big data directly in MicroStrategy's data discovery interface.

Enterprise Mobility Management

Deploy and administer mobile apps.

Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) vendors offer two methods for incorporating their libraries into mobile apps: app wrapping or native SDK integration. MicroStrategy customers can leverage both options.

MicroStrategy offers native support on iOS for AirWatch, MobileIron, and Good Dynamics, as these three vendors are the leaders in the market and are the chosen solutions for many organizations. MicroStrategy customers using these EMM solutions can integrate MicroStrategy natively by leveraging one of the three EMM-specific Mobile SDKs.

Organizations that opt to use other EMM providers or have Android apps use app wrapping to blend the two technologies.

Enterprise resource planning

Build applications using data stored in ERP systems.

MicroStrategy is uniquely suited to leverage data stored in ERP, CRM, and web applications. The platform leverages sophisticated engines to access, aggregate, and analyze data from these types of heterogeneous data sources:

  • The Dynamic SQL Engine generates optimized SQL for accessing data warehouses.
  • The Freeform SQL Engine provides direct access to operational databases, text files, and spreadsheets via a graphical Query Builder or through freehand SQL.

MicroStrategy can access many different databases using a common Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) layer. MicroStrategy installs ODBC drivers which communicate directly to the database through the database's wire protocol.

MicroStrategy can use either SQL queries or ODBC to connect to different ERP systems and leverage the data store within them to build powerful analytical and productivity applications.

Local files

Build applications with data from local files like Excel and CSV.

MicroStrategy gives users the freedom to import local file-based data assets such as Excel spreadsheets, CSV files, and Access databases. Users can easily blend this local data with other enterprise data assets including relational databases, cloud applications, and HDFS.

Mapping

Use any GIS to build applications with mapping functionality.

MicroStrategy lets organizations use the mapping functionality of any Geospatial Information System (GIS) in their MicroStrategy applications. GIS connectors are designed as plug-ins. Once set up, the plug-ins automatically map geo-codes to MicroStrategy attributes and renders BI data in a map visualization.

MicroStrategy can connect to mapping products hosted in the Cloud or on a local server and provides out-of-the-box integration with leading GIS technologies like ESRI and Google maps.

Visual Crossing, a MicroStrategy partner, can add a very powerful GIS layer on top of MicroStrategy and offers a sophisticated solution for geospacial analysis.

Media assets

Embed multimedia into analytical applications.

The media widget allows users to enhance dashboards with video, audio, images, or website content. By adding media to dashboards, users can provide instructions, and background information about data, or simply enhance the look and feel of the dashboard.

One of the primary purposes of the media widget is to present supplemental information about the data on a dashboard. For example, on a sales dashboard, a regional manager could post a video that summarizes quarterly sales and discusses the significance of the data shown.

The media widget can also be used for instructional purposes. A document designer can include audio or video that explains how to use a dashboard, helping end users focus on key data and work more efficiently.

OLAP

Build applications using data stored in MDX cube sources.

It's easy to integrate data from MultiDimensional Expressions (MDX) cube sources, such as SAP BW, IBM Cognos TM1, Oracle Essbase, or Microsoft Analysis Services, into your MicroStrategy projects.

The MicroStrategy Server converts data stored in an MDX cube source into MicroStrategy objects using the MDX language. MDX is similar to SQL, but is used to query cubes.

Once connected, users can leverage the rich set of MicroStrategy reporting and analytical functionality on these cubes as they would on any other dataset. Users can create data marts and intelligent in-memory cubes, blend information from MDX cubes with other data using MicroStrategy's multi-source capabilities, and create multiple reports to run against a single MDX cube.

The MicroStrategy platform leverages native ODBC drivers to provide optimized connectivity to over 40 RDBMS systems.

  • The Multi-Pass SQL Engine translates analytical questions into optimized queries using multiple passes of SQL. This method is faster and more agile than traditional single-pass SQL.
  • Push-down analytics leverages excess database processing power by using database specific syntax to process calculations at the database level.
  • Precision tuning of queries via an extensive set of VLBD settings can be applied at the report, application, or project level.
  • The multi-source engine enables connectivity to data stored across multiple enterprise data assets.
  • The transaction engine pushes new or updated data back to underlying databases.

Statistical assets

Build applications that leverage R scripts and PMML.

MicroStrategy lets organizations leverage 3rd-party statistical and data mining software within their enterprise applications.

The R Integration Pack allows analysts to integrate the R statistical software into MicroStrategy by deploying R analytics as standard MicroStrategy metrics. These metrics can then be used in any MicroStrategy report, document, dashboard, or application.

The platform also supports integration with data mining tools that utilize the predictive model markup language (PMML), the leading standard for statistical and data mining models. By integrating with PMML-based models, MicroStrategy helps organizations maximize their investment in other data mining products.
