MicroStrategy Unveiled MicroStrategy 10.7(TM)

In March 2017, MicroStrategy announced the general availability of MicroStrategy 10.7, the latest feature release to its MicroStrategy 10(TM) platform. This release delivered a set of APIs that allows MicroStrategy customers to build almost any data connector and an extensive SDK to support the Data Connector API. The Data Connector SDK opens a more extensive list of options for both IT and business users, allowing access to data sources including Eloqua, Amazon S3, OneDrive and more - all on top of secure authentication modes. The SDK includes documentation and instructions to make it easy to build and deploy new connections.

"Enterprises need both horsepower and flexibility to deploy business intelligence and data analytics solutions at scale," said Tim Lang, CTO of MicroStrategy Incorporated. "MicroStrategy 10.7 extends the types of technologies that can connect to the platform by giving our customers direct pathways to the data resources they need. With this greater level of accessibility, our customers can draw more value from their existing investments to improve productivity, customer engagement and operational efficiencies."

MicroStrategy 10.7 also added integrations with Natural Language Generation (NLG) providers Automated Insights and Narrative Science, letting users add Intelligent Narratives to their dashboards alongside their reports, graphs, and visualizations. With NLG, MicroStrategy users can read narratives that explain the patterns and trends in the data, making the platform more accessible to an even wider audience of business users. To see how MicroStrategy 10.7 supports Intelligent Narratives, watch this video.

"Our seamless integration with MicroStrategy reflects our common vision of empowering enterprises with data-driven intelligence. Narratives for MicroStrategy broadens the accessibility of this intelligence by automatically providing it in natural language," said Mauro Mujica-Parodi, General Manager, Integrated Narrative Solutions & Applications at Narrative Science. "This technology partnership enables MicroStrategy clients to instantly receive and report Intelligent Narratives comprised of insights that matter most to their organizations."

"The technology partnership between MicroStrategy and the Wordsmith(R) NLG platform is exciting because it gives MicroStrategy users control over the automation of narrative insights derived from their dashboards. Key metrics and data points that MicroStrategy users need to know are highlighted and summarized in a narrative form, updating in real-time as users explore their visualizations," said Adam Smith, Chief Revenue Officer and Head of Partnerships at Automated Insights. "Now, MicroStrategy users can easily complement their complex dashboards with the most important takeaways condensed into a narrative that any user can understand, utilizing company-specific language."

MicroStrategy 10.7 delivered a completely re-architected native connector, called the Hadoop Gateway, that leverages Apache Spark(TM) to increase scalability and performance while accessing data directly from HDFS. The release also made the Hadoop Gateway setup process easier and more seamless. Also, with version 10.7, the Hadoop Gateway can access more file types, including Parquet, Avro, and JSON formats. This functionality is in addition to previously supported .csv and text file formats.

Additional features for MicroStrategy Desktop(TM), MicroStrategy Web(TM), and MicroStrategy Mobile(TM) in version 10.7 include:

New Certifications for Data Sources -- MicroStrategy 10.7 supports even more data sources and meets a number of new certification standards. New certifications available in version 10.7 include: -- MSAS 2016 (certified as a data warehouse)

Amazon Aurora, MySQL Edition (certified as a data warehouse and metadata)

Custom Shapes on iOS Devices -- MicroStrategy 10.7 delivers a consistent user experience in maps on iOS devices by allowing organizations to deploy custom shapes and area maps, supporting both .KML and .SHP files.

AppConfig Support in Android(TM) -- In addition to native integration support with AirWatch(R), MicroStrategy 10.7 supports the implementation of AppConfig (formerly known as ACE) for standardized enterprise mobility management processes. This configures and helps secure applications on Android devices based on AppConfig guidelines. The integration with AppConfig facilitates more consistent, open, and simple ways to configure and help secure mobile applications.

Alongside the MicroStrategy 10.7 feature release, MicroStrategy 10.4(TM) Hotfix 3 was made generally available to customers. This hotfix improves overall product stability and includes 120 customer-requested enhancements and fixes across the platform. Furthermore, the hotfix is certified on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 12, in addition to being available for Windows(R), AIX(TM), and Solaris.

MicroStrategy Highlighted Key Opportunities for 2017 in Analytics and Mobility at its January Symposium Series

The Symposium Series offered several hands-on workshops for attendees to gain firsthand experience with MicroStrategy Desktop, the company’s free enterprise data discovery product.

MicroStrategy Hosted its 20th Annual World Conference, April 18-20, 2017 in Washington, D.C.

In April 2017, MicroStrategy hosted its 20th annual user conference, MicroStrategy World(TM) 2017, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center. Nearly 2,900 individuals attended MicroStrategy World and learned how MicroStrategy 10 can empower them to make sense of large data volumes and answer their toughest business questions. Industry experts gathered in the nation’s capital to hear about the latest features of MicroStrategy 10, chose from more than 200 informative sessions, received hands-on technical training on key topics, experienced interactive demos, and networked with partners and peers at numerous social events.

MicroStrategy 10.7, the newest feature release on the MicroStrategy 10 platform, took center stage at MicroStrategy World.

MicroStrategy and Datastrong Hosted "STEM for Her" Race at MicroStrategy World(TM) 2017

In April 2017, MicroStrategy sponsored and hosted a 5K run in association with Datastrong, a BI and data warehousing solutions provider, at MicroStrategy World 2017. All proceeds from the event benefitted STEM for Her, a non-profit foundation that supports young women and girls in the Washington, D.C. region who are interested in pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and math fields of study.

"Through hands-on training and mentoring programs, we impact the lives of hundreds of young women in the local community," said Marian McKee, Board Chair, STEM for Her. "When technology organizations, like MicroStrategy and Datastrong, come together and actively support programs that encourage gender diversity, they are 15 percent more likely to outperform their competitors."

"Datastrong understands that science, technology, engineering, and math are what makes society progress and contribute to improving our future," said Jacqueline Meriwether, Managing Partner at Datastrong. "Teaming up with STEM for Her provides the community at MicroStrategy World with opportunities to impact the young women and girls that will be the future talent in our technology organizations."

"According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 1.4 million computer science jobs will be available in America by 2020. At MicroStrategy, we are focused on supporting the young minds who aspire to fill those roles," said Susan Cook, Executive Vice President of Sales for North America, MicroStrategy Incorporated. "Supporting this locally-based non-profit foundation directly benefits the young women and girls in the Washington, D.C. region who are aiming to hold a STEM-related career."

The race was also supported by MicroStrategy’s "At The Table," a cross-functional network for women at MicroStrategy that provides members with opportunities for professional development, networking, and support through learning and social events.

PetSmart(R) Powers Productivity, Analytics and Reporting with MicroStrategy 10

In February 2017, MicroStrategy announced that North America’s leading pet specialty retailer, PetSmart, Inc., deployed MicroStrategy 10 across its enterprise. With about 55,000 associates, more than 1,500 pet stores in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico, and 204 in-store PetSmart PetsHotel(R) dog and cat boarding facilities, PetSmart turned to MicroStrategy’s mobile capabilities to empower its workforce and inform executives. The retailer has used MicroStrategy’s technology for nearly a decade and made the decision to upgrade to MicroStrategy 10. PetSmart launched its first internal mobile app in 2010 and now has nearly 20 internal apps built on MicroStrategy that are delivering key insights to senior leaders and associates across the enterprise.

"We deployed our first MicroStrategy Mobile app about seven years ago and since then are improving data accessibility across our enterprise," said Brian Rensing, Sr. Director, Enterprise Information Management, PetSmart. "A mobile approach to our data analytics and business intelligence strategy dramatically increases our efficiency and puts insights into the palm of our associates’ hands. A wide range of users access our internal BI apps every day - even multiple times a day - including senior leaders, field associates, distribution center and store managers and associates across all functions of the company such as finance, marketing, HR and Store Ops. We are streamlining reporting with insightful and actionable data through our mobile apps and dashboards."

PetSmart’s first mobile analytics app was deployed to improve data accessibility among executives and distribution center leaders. Rather than stopping at a single app, PetSmart continued to expand its use of the MicroStrategy Mobile platform and now has almost a dozen iPhone apps and five iPad apps, allowing the company to democratize data beyond executives to district managers, regional vice presidents, and field and store leaders.

Crate and Barrel Chose MicroStrategy for "Real-time, Modern BI Solution at Enterprise Scale"

In February 2017, MicroStrategy announced that Crate and Barrel, an industry-leading home furnishings specialty retailer, chose MicroStrategy 10 to power its analytics and mobility applications, beginning with its store operations, finance, and planning and allocation departments. Crate and Barrel switched to MicroStrategy for its data analytics needs so business users can gain real-time access to BI tools, even while they speak with customers in stores. The rollout of Crate and Barrel’s mobile and analytics tools put the power of MicroStrategy 10 in the hands of executives, merchants, analysts and store managers in 170 Crate and Barrel stores throughout the United States.

"Because MicroStrategy 10 gives us mobile functionality, real-time data access, and self-service features at enterprise scale, we can fundamentally change business reporting and the customer shopping experience for the better," said Mike Relich, COO, Crate and Barrel. "We’re getting MicroStrategy 10 in the hands of our store and field managers via tablet apps so store associates have inventory and sales data precisely when customers need it. At an enterprise level, MicroStrategy 10 also moves our organization away from static reporting, with real-time, self-service tools to unlock strategic insights."

With MicroStrategy 10’s self-service model, Crate and Barrel’s business users are creating reports on demand. They are quickly accessing intuitive and timely reports, and mining data for insights. Additionally, store and field managers have more impactful conversations with employees by accessing real-time data on their mobile devices.

Data Analytics Reseller QueBIT Adds MicroStrategy to its Portfolio of Solutions

Non-GAAP Financial Measure

MicroStrategy is providing a supplemental financial measure for income from continuing operations that excludes the impact of share-based compensation arrangements and restructuring activities. This financial measure is not a measurement of financial performance under generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP") and, as a result, this financial measure may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Management uses this non-GAAP financial measure internally to help understand, manage and evaluate business performance and to help make operating decisions. MicroStrategy believes that this non-GAAP financial measure is also useful to investors and analysts in comparing its performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis because it excludes a significant non-cash expense that MicroStrategy believes is not reflective of its general business performance and restructuring charges that we believe are not reflective of ongoing operating results. In addition, accounting for share-based compensation arrangements requires significant management judgment and the resulting expense could vary significantly in comparison to other companies. Therefore, MicroStrategy believes the use of this non-GAAP financial measure can also facilitate comparison of MicroStrategy’s operating results to those of its competitors.
