Services

The core analytical processing power for every project.

MicroStrategy offers a comprehensive set of business intelligence services that can be delivered via the on-premise MicroStrategy Server or the MicroStrategy Cloud. These services dynamically assemble metadata objects and provide core analytical processing power for any type of analytics application.

Support threshold-based delivery of reports and dashboards.

Analytical

Analyze data using advanced calculations and functions.

Data

Retrieve data from a variety of enterprise assets.

Distribution

Automate the delivery of personalized reports and dashboards.

Localization

Support the deployment of localized multilingual applications.

Logical access

Enable users to securely access logical assets with Usher.

Physical access

Integrate with PACS to enable Usher to control facilities access.

Reporting

Support ad-hoc execution and manipulation of documents.

Security

Alert services

Support threshold-based delivery of reports and dashboards.

Alerting Services supports the threshold-based delivery of reports, documents, and dashboards. Any user can quickly set up delivery subscriptions that are executed only when a certain condition, or threshold, is met. These threshold conditions are defined either by using fixed value comparisons (e.g. "profit margin drops below 5%") or by comparing one metric to another (e.g. "revenue drops below cost").

Once configured, an alert subscription scans and evaluates the data and sends proactive notifications to subscribers if the threshold conditions are met. This ensures that users are alerted when there is a departure from standard business conditions.

Analytical services

Analyze data using advanced calculations and functions.

The MicroStrategy platform is designed to help organizations use data to tackle their toughest business problems. That’s why MicroStrategy delivers a wide range of out-of-the-box analytical functions, supports integration with 3rd-party statistical programs and data mining tools, and makes it easy to apply these calculations across enterprise data sources.

With MicroStrategy, metrics and KPIs can range from simple aggregations to advanced financial and statistical calculations to data mining models. These metrics can then be easily leveraged in reports, visualizations, dashboards, or enterprise applications.

Data services

Retrieve data from a variety of enterprise assets.

The MicroStrategy Intelligence Server is optimized to integrate and extract data from all major data sources. It can perform data analysis across different data sources by querying them and pulling the relevant data into a single unified data set.

The Intelligence Server relies on the ODBC standard and SQL to query relational databases and uses XMLA with the MDX query language for cube databases.

MicroStrategy installs wire protocol ODBC drivers that communicate directly with a database through its own wire level protocol, eliminating the need to install a database’s native networking drivers.

Distribution services

Automate the delivery of personalized reports and dashboards.

Distribution Services is a component of the MicroStrategy platform that enables efficient, high-volume distribution of reports, documents, and dashboards.

Both administrators and users can define subscriptions to a variety of devices and formats (tablet, phone, email, PDF, etc.). Once subscribed, users receive updates whenever they are available.

Users can also set up various distribution triggers, including:

  • Send Now - immediate distribution
  • Time-based triggers - e.g. "every Monday morning"
  • Event-based triggers - e.g. "when data loading is complete"
  • Alert-based triggers - e.g. "when inventory drops below 10%"

Localization services

Support the deployment of localized multilingual applications.

The MicroStrategy platform enables organizations to deploy fully localized applications by supporting internationalization in three key areas: metadata, data, and system interfaces.

  • System metadata: MicroStrategy provides out-of-the-box translations for 20 languages and dialects. Translations are provided for user interfaces, system components, system messages, menus, and toolbars.
  • Data translation: The platform supports the internationalization of enterprise data into many different languages. This allows a single report or dashboard to serve the local language needs of users all over the world.
  • Interface translations: MicroStrategy uses the language setting on a computer or device to dynamically provide interface translations for the Mobile, Web, and Developer interfaces.

Logical access services

Enable users to securely access logical assets with Usher.

Usher replaces physical ID badges, passwords, keys, and security tokens with secure digital badges delivered via smartphone.

Using a combination of strong authentication methods, Usher secures access to applications, VPNs, workstations, and more.

Interactive authentication options include push notifications, QR code scans, one-time passcodes and biometrics, as well as zero-click, proximity-based authentication via Bluetooth.

Physical access services

Integrate with PACS to enable Usher to control facilities access.

Usher lets users seamlessly access physical entryways using their smartphones, delivering critical security that’s convenient for everyone.

Usher is designed to communicate and connect with a variety of physical access control systems (PACS) and comes with several out-of-the-box integrations, including Lenel OnGaurd and Tyco CCure.

When Usher connects to a PACS, each physical access point secured by the existing system is loaded into the Usher Security Server as a digital key. The PACS continues to control access, but Usher allows users to unlock these entryways by touching a digital key, scanning a QR code, tapping an NFC tag, or via proximity with a BLE beacon or Bluetooth badge reader.

Reporting services

Support ad-hoc execution and manipulation of documents.

With MicroStrategy, it's possible to build a variety of enterprise reports, documents, and dashboards, ranging from operational reports to invoices and statements.

Reports and documents created in MicroStrategy are highly flexible and enable users to tailor a report view to the exact level that they need to answer a specific business question.

Enterprise reports allow users to quickly identify when key performance metrics fall outside of a desired range, and how they perform over time. Users can drill down into a document’s underlying data to uncover the root cause of any issue.

Security services

Apply user level permissions and privileges.

The MicroStrategy platform is built to meet the most stringent organizational security requirements. Seamless integration with Windows, LDAP, databases, and other systems ensures that only appropriately authenticated users are granted access to sensitive corporate information.

Combining data access security with application privileges and object access permissions provides granular, row-level data security that is personalized for each individual, user role, and user group.

It also provides support for encryption of data at rest and in transit, encryption key management, system activity and transaction logging, and auditing.

Telemetry services

Log usage, authorization, and identity data for analysis.

MicroStrategy enables organizations to capture back-end telemetry data, generated by Usher, in order to analyze user activity across the enterprise. Usher can collect a wide range of enterprise data, including:

  • Location: data generated from device GPS and Bluetooth readers
  • Access: record logs of the gateways and resources accessed by users
  • Authentications: information on the methods used by individuals to access physical and logical assets
  • Time: time stamps for access and authentication activities
  • Authorization: data regarding the privileges and access rights of users

Taken together, this data is extremely valuable. In addition to improving enterprise security, this telemetry data can help management better understand resource usage patterns, identify ways to reduce waste, and improve business processes.

Transaction services

Take action on information, from anywhere.

Transaction Services allows users to leverage a document (most commonly a mobile app) to write back to an underlying data source. Transactions allow users to take action on a decision from directly within a MicroStrategy application by inserting, updating, or deleting rows in the underlying data source.

When a user inputs information into a transactional field, it is captured by the application. Then, using MicroStrategy’s write-back capabilities, the underlying database is updated.

MicroStrategy supports a wide range of transactional inputs including: text fields, calendar, camera, GPS, sliders, and more.
