We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"In general, it is helpful because it allows administrators to see where the Wi-Fi and network services are being most used.""Technical support has always been very good.""I like Location Analytics' geofencing features for devices. You can manage thousands of devices with just a push of a button and deploy applications in seconds. For example, in schools, you can deploy an app update for thousands of iPads in just two clicks."

Cons
"The pricing is a pain point for us. It's a bit expensive.""I would like to see all of the features included in a single package.""The biggest issue is negotiating the price with a client. That's the most complicated part, but the product is worth it."

"It would be good if it had greater analytics so we could build these visualizations by ourselves with scripts.""Data preparation-wise, it was not so straightforward with respect to getting different sources. Preparing or transforming the data inside and then bringing it onto the dashboard was a bit difficult, and the experience could have been better.""MicroStrategy should become more user friendly. It should behave more like Tableau.""MicroStrategy needs to do some more development to make the platform easier to use. It's a complicated platform that requires a lot of skill to effectively utilize. So they could work on reducing the complexity to make it more accessible for a broader community of people.""Preparation, data loading and data management application is challenging with MicroStrategy. It lacks cube-based analytics as it is outdated, meaning there is no memory or fast processing analytics or MMA deployment.""I would like to see the enterprise version available in a demo or as a trial version.""I would like to see more integration.""Its price should be lower. In terms of features, what we have is quite encompassing right now."

  • "It is expensive. We would like to extend it to many users, but we are currently restricting that because the cost is a constraint. If we are given a chance, we would love to expand it."
  • "All BI software vendors' list prices are high. It's about a price that fits the customer's needs. And I think MicroStrategy has some flexibility in its pricing model where we can easily demonstrate a total cost of ownership comparison against any of the other players."
  • "There is no subscription, I am using the free version."
  • "I am unsure what the licensing costs are for this solution however, development costs are around $100,000 per year."
