Sponsored by Businesswire

MicroStrategy® (Nasdaq: MSTR), the largest independent publicly-traded business intelligence company, today announced that Gartner, Inc., the leading provider of research and analysis on the global information technology industry, has recognized MicroStrategy with the highest product scores in Enterprise Analytics and Embedded Analytics, in the “Critical Capabilities for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms” report for its platform, MicroStrategy 2020™.[1] MicroStrategy’s rankings include:

  • #1 in Enterprise Analytics Use Case (scoring 4.86 out of 5)
  • #1 in Embedded Analytics Use Case (scoring 4.96 out of 5)
  • #2 in General Analytics Use Case (scoring 4.24 out of 5)
  • #3 in Advanced Analytics Use Case (scoring 4.46 out of 5)

“We’re very proud of MicroStrategy 2020’s top scores for Enterprise Analytics and Embedded Analytics use cases and believe our breakthrough technology HyperIntelligence® satisfies a new customer use case for speed and agility that hasn’t been addressed by traditional analytics and BI tools. By delivering actionable insights directly into emails, spreadsheets, calendars, popular business applications, and mobile devices that people use every day, we’re pushing the market beyond the ad hoc query and dashboard paradigm,” said Tim Lang, Senior Executive Vice President and CTO, MicroStrategy Incorporated.

According to Gartner, “To maximize value from their use of analytics and BI, data and analytics leaders should put more of an architectural focus on the consumer role, in particular by pushing personalized analytic content directly to the consumer’s natural workflow.” Gartner further believes that “by 2020, organizations that offer users access to a curated catalog of internal and external data will derive twice as much business value from analytics investments as those that do not.”

“As HyperIntelligence is increasingly deployed by our customers and serves up analytics to a much broader audience, we believe that it will illuminate more paths to value by adding speed and actionable insights to slower, weaker business applications deployed over the past 20 years,” said Lang.
