MicroStrategy CloudMicroStrategy announces general availability of MicroStrategy Cloud Express, a New SaaS Offering. This new Service offers analytical depth, performance and scalability of world-class business intelligence. Data either on-premises or cloud-based, can be accessed instantly without compromising on security and can be explored with the help of intuitive data visualizations. Customers can design and share mobile apps without writing a line of code.

This new solution is designed for “do it yourself” analytics and data publishing. Designing boardroom-quality reports and delivery of personalized data to thousands of recipients is possible. Custom interfaces can be created to publish data to mobile users. This new SaaS offering adds to the existing Personal and Platform options originally released in 2011. As it is a subscription-based service, subscribers only pay for the services they consume each month. This enables organizations to start small and grow their implementation over time.

Customers can begin analyzing data instantly without actually moving or replicating their entire database to the Cloud. Data Sources can be a database located on-premise or in the cloud, Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, CSV files from your computer or from an online source. Any existing Salesforce report can also be used. With MicroStrategy’s Direct Connect technology, Cloud Express users can simply connect and analyze compatible databases wherever they are located, without compromising performance. Ability to create metrics on-the-fly, use advanced and predictive analytics, filter and drill through data are some of the features of This Solution.

MicroStrategy Cloud Express makes it easy for anyone to build and deploy smart mobile app mashups by combine reports, dashboards and multimedia content using an ipad-based mobile interface in a matter of days. All this is possible without writing a single line of code. Organization can quickly build and deploy branded, professional-quality analytics and content to any number of mobile users quickly and easily. This makes the solution quick and cost effective.

With innovative Express Delivery functionality, subscribers can quickly build documents and reports designed for mass distribution. The Company has streamlined the process of adding personalization to data contained in these reports. Any user with minimal training can create distributions targeted to individual recipients based on factors like their organizational role, geographic location, or other criteria, without the need for long, complicated IT projects. These Express distributions are easy to set up and can quickly be configured for recurrence on a scheduled basis.

“MicroStrategy Cloud Express is unlike any product we’ve introduced before. It is an innovative technology that delivers powerful analytics and mobile intelligence features with remarkable ease,” said Sanju Bansal, MicroStrategy Executive Vice President. “MicroStrategy Cloud Express will empower business executives and unburden IT departments, allowing companies to deliver value to their customers faster and more cost- effectively.”
