Solutions for Executives

Executives are responsible for making decisions that can make or break a company, but they have little time to dig through and make sense of data sitting in spreadsheets and databases. To lead well, they need to be able to keep both the big picture and the details of day-to-day operations in mind. Leaders of the Intelligent Enterprise use tools that can give them quick, easy, and secure access to accurate, up-to-date information on business performance, enabling informed decisions that positively impact their organization.

Command Center

The Challenge

Modern organizations are complex entities. They are composed of a large number of people, departments, and processes. To effectively run their function, executives need to be able to bring together disparate information and report on the organization as a whole—something that has proven difficult historically due to departmental data silos.

The Solution

A command center enables the executive suite to easily digest KPIs from across departments and keep their finger on the pulse of the business. Leaders can take action immediately and strategically drive meetings by asking probing, data-driven questions regarding the state of the organization. MicroStrategy makes monitoring the business via a command center quick and easy by seamlessly blending data from across platforms and disparate sources. Real-time analytics displayed in a single place offers executive leadership an opportunity to engage with the big picture numbers each day.

Product

The Challenge

The Chief Technology Officer and other technology executives rely on their teams to share reports on product research and customer feedback. Traditionally, these reports come from various individuals across the organization and are collected independently of one another. As more and more companies embrace agile product development processes, this old method becomes increasingly untenable. Executives need a way to gather and access all of this content in a single place, so they can make better informed decisions regarding project scope and roadmaps. 

The Solution

There are many different teams involved in product development. MicroStrategy dashboards empower executives with up-to-date information on the wide spectrum of product development processes, including information on metrics such as R and D costs, average time to market, on-time launch percentages, and the number of engineering hours spent on each project. With a product overview dashboard, executives, product owners, and other stakeholders are able to aggregate data that measures and tracks product development and management processes alongside feedback and product enhancement request from customers.

Sales

The Challenge

For organizations with a large, distributed sales force, keeping tabs on performance at the overall, regional, and country level can be tough. Sales executives need a tool that allows them to collect and group individual reports, track performance, and view trends in a single, easy-to-use interface. They need this information so they can get better visibility into performance, demand higher levels of accountability among their sales force, and provide guidance that can help their reps sell better and close more deals.

The Solution

MicroStrategy arms sales executives with information they need to run their business. With MicroStrategy, they can quickly access real-time data on key metrics like conversion rates, sales pipeline, and lost deals, and easily drill down to the country, region, or individual level to get more detailed information. This flexibility helps them answer questions like, “Which regions are slow this quarter? What are my top territories? Or more importantly, who is my lowest performing rep in each territory?” Mobile access to this information helps sales executives be more agile, and because MicroStrategy works regardless of internet connectivity, sales leadership can confidently dig into their data regardless of where they are.

Marketing

The Challenge

Most companies realize the importance of managing customer relationships, but surprisingly few are able to meaningfully measure and analyze customer interactions throughout the buying process. CMOs and other marketing executives need a tool that can help them track the effectiveness of their marketing spend across all channels, so they can more strategically manage their programs and campaigns, generate more leads, and deliver the highest possible ROI.

The Solution

Modern marketing is a data-driven discipline, and MicroStrategy dashboards help arm CMOs with accurate, up-to-date information on marketing performance across different channels. With MicroStrategy, it is easy to blend data from sources like Google Analytics, Twitter, Facebook, Salesforce, and more to create a single interface for keeping tabs on a wide variety of marketing activities. MicroStrategy dashboards and reports can help marketing executives dig into their data to tweak in-progress campaigns, determine marketing-driven ROI, and identify new opportunities for targeted marketing based on customer profiles. This information is critical to better serving customers, driving brand loyalty, and maximizing customer lifetime value.

Human Resources

The Challenge

Employees are a company’s greatest asset. Hiring, retaining, and investing in employee development is a critical, continuous task for every organization. But attracting the best talent is difficult. Quality hires are hard to find, and those who stay for the long term are even harder — a big problem because it costs between 6 and 9 months’ salary to replace an employee. That’s why it is so important for HR executives to stay plugged in and up-to-date on industry benchmarks like employee compensation and satisfaction as well as internal HR performance metrics like yield, interview-to-offer ratios, and quality of hire.

The Solution

A business is not just a product or service, it is also a collection of individuals who together define corporate culture and make an organization a cutting-edge, vibrant place to work. Finding the right team is critical to the long-term success of any organization, and MicroStrategy gives HR executives the analytical tools they need to help get the job done. With MicroStrategy, executives can track hiring, attrition, retention rates, employee satisfaction, and compensation benchmarks from within a single, user-friendly interface. With greater insight into key HR metrics and processes, executives can more proactively target issues like understaffing, poor employee performance, and high turnover rates.

Finance

The Challenge

Finance requires both high-level oversight and incredible attention to detail. An organization’s executive suite needs to be able to access real-time information on spending, budgeting, and financial performance in order to run their business units more effectively. But for many executives, digging through individual spending reports and budgets can be overwhelming. That is why executive leadership teams needs a single tool that can give them instant insight into a wide range of important financial metrics.

The Solution

Without finance, key organizational functions like product development, marketing, and business development would fall flat. CFOs and others in the executive suite need to be able to easily get a grasp on high-level corporate financials so they can more confidently plan, budget, and forecast. With MicroStrategy, organizations can easily combine financial data from across the enterprise through data blending and hierarchal reporting. By putting this information in a single, user-friendly mobile interface, executives can quickly aggregate financial data across department or quarter, dig into budget and spending KPIs, and instantly get an overall view of financial performance.

Operations

The Challenge

Organizations are constantly trying to get the most out of their limited resources and budgets, but it can be difficult to get an overall view of business performance and efficiency. Executives need a tool that combines data from various sources in a single location, so they can measure, analyze, and evaluate processes, and identify opportunities for improvements across the business. 

The Solution

A MicroStrategy dashboard allows executives to combine operations information from across various departments and processes to get a high-level overview of both day-to-day operations and long-term efficiency. An operations dashboard consolidates various performance benchmarks for internal projects in a single place. This helps operations executives identify opportunities for process optimization, cost reduction, and increased employee productivity. The application allows executives to easily access a wide range of information on customer and user needs, revenue, costs, efficiency, and performance, and quickly compare these key metrics to industry standards and internal benchmarks. With instant mobile access to this type of information, executives can more easily monitor corporate performance, identify bottlenecks, and drive process changes to help boost efficiency and productivity.

Legal

The Challenge

Every organization has complex business relationships with other parties. And each one of these relationship generates agreements and contracts that need to be managed. Tracking these documents can be difficult and time consuming, but getting a consolidated view of the legal relationship between entities is critical to the long-term success of any organization.

The Solution

MicroStrategy can encourage the intelligent alignment of legal resources to key business transactions in order to increase business velocity through analytical tracking and management of legal operations. Transform the legal arm of an organization with analytics to help mitigate risk and maintain long-term business viability. Analytics can help effectively balance legal workload between the internal team and outside counsel. Reporting on project progress can improve coordination among business teams. The Chief Legal Officer and leading legal executives can help improve legal processes and strategy concerning record management and documentation surrounding workforce and workplace topics, product development and intellectual property, and sales processes.

Workforce Oversight

The Challenge

Organizations spend a tremendous amount of money on various information systems and applications, but they lack a true sense of how their employees are interacting with these systems. The data generated from these systems is often locked away in siloed databases -– resulting in an incomplete or nonexistent analysis of enterprise resource utilization.

The Solution

By putting Usher on top of existing enterprise systems and applications, organizations are able to build a unified view of identity intelligence. That means organizations no longer need to deal with siloed access and authentication data, and can get real-time insight into workforce distribution, resource utilization, and systems access. Because Usher Professional can give organizations a more complete view of employee behavior, executives can more easily analyze data and identify strategies for enhancing employee productivity, improving resource utilization, and cutting costs.

Executives at thousands of leading global organizations rely on MicroStrategy every day.
