Industry Survey Recognizes MicroStrategy for Business Intelligence Standardization

Originally published February 15, 2007

MicroStrategy a provider of business intelligence software, recently announced that The OLAP Survey 6, an independent survey of the business intelligence software market, has recognized MicroStrategy as the top product for BI standardization. For the second consecutive year, MicroStrategy's software was the top BI product selected by customers asked to choose one product for BI standardization.

The OLAP Survey 6, conducted annually by independent analyst Nigel Pendse, asked BI customers using more than one product to select the product on which they would choose to standardize if forced to pick one, and to explain why. MicroStrategy was cited as the top product on which to standardize, with 92.4% of the respondents indicating they would select MicroStrategy as their enterprise BI standard.

Business intelligence products that are typically good candidates for standardization must be easy to use, suitable for a broad array of BI applications, and provide a wide range of BI functionality. When asked why they selected MicroStrategy, respondents cited product features, its ability to support large numbers of concurrent users, Web deployability and multi-platform support.

“The rising tendency of Survey participants with multiple BI products to continue to rank MicroStrategy as the top product to keep in a standardization exercise, is a reflection of MicroStrategy’s widening range of capabilities and suitability for BI standardization,” said Nigel Pendse, author of The OLAP Survey 6. “Large vendors that have consistently failed to deliver are seemingly being repaid with declining loyalty from their customers.”
