MicroStrategy launches new version of analytics platform
MicroStrategy 2019 includes new features to enhance use of enterprise data
MicroStrategy has announced availability of its new enterprise intelligence and analytics platform, MicroStrategy 2019.
The new Microstrategy 2019 is the industry's first enterprise platform for Hyperintelligence, transformational mobility, and federated analytics, the company says.
Founder, Chairman of the Board, President & CEO Michael J. Saylor and other members of MicroStrategy's management team rang the Nasdaq opening bell yesterday to celebrate the launch of MicroStrategy 2019.
Among the features of the new platform is the ability to bring business information into workflows, with features such as the HyperCard, which can present content-relevant data to business users directly in a business application, sourcing data from over 200 enterprise data sources.
For example, organisations can deploy a ‘customer' HyperCard to their sales representatives, which can present a range of data from CRM solutions, and enable the user to hover over the card to access more indepth data and actions.
The new platform includes mobile productivity features, and easy integration of data into mobile platforms and easy development of custom mobile apps.
For analytics power users, the platform includes a powerful analytical engine, comprehensive toolsets, variety of data connectors, and scalable, open architecture to help ensure that organisations have the data they need, and the application can integrate tools from popular analytics applications so that users can deploy tools they are familiar with.
The heard of MicroStrategy 2019 is its enterprise semantic graph. This proprietary metadata foundation delivers a robust business glossary and index for a vast range of corporate information, making it a powerful method to consolidate disparate sources of data and deliver a single version of truth.
The solution is optimised for AWS and Microsoft Azure, for deployment in the cloud.
Other new features include the MicroStrategy Library, to deliver a personalised portal for analytics for each user, with personalised interactions; and Dossier to build interactive books of analytics, with Natural Language Querying (NLQ) to quickly build visualizations. New APIs allow for building custom apps to expand the MicroStrategy platform.
New MicroStrategy Workstation delivers a modern interface to perform administrative and routine management tasks. Platform Analytics makes it easier than before to understand the usage of an organization's MicroStrategy deployments with real-time telemetry capabilities. Also, with the updated provisioning console in MicroStrategy 2019, administrators and architects can deploy MicroStrategy on AWS or Azure in under 30 minutes.
"We're proud to unveil MicroStrategy 2019, the first enterprise analytics and mobility platform that provides intelligence that organizations need for every moment of the day," said Saylor. "Intelligence is about time, and when seconds matter, there's simply no room for information that is one click away - let alone the time to find the right sets of data through self-service analytics. With HyperIntelligence, information becomes self-evident. Information about customers, products, and employees naturally surfaces - with zero clicks - at a glance on a screen, by voice or even through the lens of a camera."
