According to Gartner, "Organizations continue to turn to BI as a vital tool for smarter, more agile, and efficient business." Gartner describes Leaders as "vendors that are reasonably strong in the breadth and depth of their BI platform capabilities, and can deliver on enterprisewide implementations that support a broad BI strategy. Leaders articulate a business proposition that resonates with buyers, supported by the viability and operational capability to deliver on a global basis."
Over the past 12 months, MicroStrategy has introduced numerous major enhancements to its BI platform to deliver business information significantly faster and make BI easier to use.
