On behalf of the MicroStrategy team, we’re incredibly excited to announce that Forrester Research has named MicroStrategy a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise BI Platforms (Client-Managed), Q3 2019. “Bank on MicroStrategy as your enterprise BI platform and BI fabric foundation,” wrote Forrester Research VP and Principal Analyst Boris Evelson in the report.
While this is a huge honor in itself, in the report, our latest platform release (MicroStrategy 2019) has earned the maximum scores in eight out of 10 of The Forrester Wave’s current offering criteria:
- Systems of insight
- Big data
- App building/customization
- Data prep
- Deployment options
Check out the full report here, which provides Forrester’s analysis and scoring of 13 of today’s most significant enterprise BI platform providers, including IBM, Microsoft, MicroStrategy, Qlik, SAS, Sisense, Tableau, ThoughtSpot, and TIBCO. Around MicroStrategy’s latest platform release, the report notes, “In January 2019, MicroStrategy introduced connectors to competing BI platforms, allowing users to use their data visualization tools of choice while still leveraging MicroStrategy as a common semantic layer.
“More impressively, MicroStrategy HyperIntelligence hyperlinks all browser content—ERP, CRM, email, calendar, documents, and even competing BI platform applications—to MicroStrategy HyperIntelligence cards. These cards consolidate a variety of enterprise BI assets into dashboard views of information, which dynamically surface when users hover over hyperlinked terms.”
The Next Generation of Enterprise Intelligence
If you’re unfamiliar with MicroStrategy HyperIntelligence, our semantic graph, or our other latest features, take a test-drive. The MicroStrategy solution that enterprise organizations have trusted for decades as a single source of truth and scalability has also become an innovation leader.
We’re proud to be riding this growing wave of 2019 accolades, which includes scoring highest in four of six use cases in Gartner’s 2019 Critical Capabilities for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms Report and winning Ventana Research’s Overall Digital Innovation Award. These recognitions, along with again being named a leader in The Forrester Wave, are truly great motivators as we continue to invest in next-generation innovation for our customers.
