MicroStrategy 2020 Update 2 delivers new capabilities for business users, analysts, and architects via a new MicroStrategy desktop application, enhancements to Dossier and HyperIntelligenceⓇ, Expert.Now, and improvements to our data connectors and Workstation—to name a few.
In part one of our two-part MicroStrategy 2020 Update 2 blog post series, I focused on the new MicroStrategy Application and HyperIntelligence. In this post, I want to share some enhancements that align with our vision to be the most open, flexible, and inclusive platform in the industry.
Stronger Open Architecture to Embrace and Augment Popular Technologies
MicroStrategy 2020 Update 2 continues to improve on the openness of our platform with updated user experiences and new workflows to manage tables of imported data on Excel with MicroStrategy for Office. We’ve certified our connector to Tableau with Tableau Server, enabling a better experience when publishing content, and we’ve improved data import time by 30% in the Jupyter and RStudio connectors.
We are now shipping the Snowflake and Teradata gateways out of the box and have added a number of performance enhancements across our data connectivity layer, including a new data import connector to SAP S/4HANA for Snowflake and Google Big Query. And MicroStrategy Cloud deployments for Azure and AWS are now supported across even more regions.
On-demand Expertise to Raise the Bar on Performance
To ensure that all users maximize their experience and investment with both MicroStrategy the product and MicroStrategy the company, we have launched a new service called Expert.Now that allows users to get in touch with MicroStrategy experts instantly via Zoom. Watch the short intro video below and then learn more about it on our website.
