The 15 Must-Have Features of a Modern BI Platform

The term modern BI is thrown around a lot these days, but what exactly does it mean? Everybody seems to agree that it’s different from traditional enterprise reporting, but there’s a lot of debate about what it actually is.

We think modern BI tools should be able to combine the capabilities of enterprise analytics with the flexibility and ease of use of data discovery. 

One thing that's clear is that modern BI platforms aren't point solutions. These tools need to meet the analytical needs of every user across the enterprise, not just solve a few niche problems. 

We think modern BI tools should be able to combine the capabilities of enterprise analytics with the flexibility and ease of use of data discovery. That means a tool that delivers a wide variety of features, including:

Our latest release, MicroStrategy 10, does just that. It’s the only business intelligence offering on the market that delivers both enterprise-grade analytics and data discovery in a single, integrated platform. 

That means organizations that deploy MicroStrategy can give their business users intuitive tools for self-service analytics without sacrificing governance, performance, or scalability.

Enterprise reports and dashboards aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, but neither is the business user demand for easy-to-use data discovery tools. Forward-thinking organizations need to plan for this and choose a modern BI platform that can meet the needs of all their users.

If you want to learn more about what sets modern BI apart from the pack,  I encourage you to read this year’s Gartner Critical Capabilities report
