We performed a comparison between MicroStrategy and Oracle Analytics Cloud based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two BI (Business Intelligence) Tools solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"MicroStrategy has what they call the Semantic Graph — an enterprise-grade semantic graph — and I think the technology is fantastic."
"The most valuable features of MicroStrategy are user-friendliness and integration with the different data warehouse systems."
"MicroStrategy's solution for mobile is very good."
"MicroStrategy has powerful data security features, which are crucial these days. For example, when users view data in MicroStrategy, they're only allowed to see a portion based on the permissions. When we evaluated other solutions like Power BI or Tableau, we found the security is very poor. They can't help us secure access to the data."
"The simplicity of MicroStrategy is what I like the most."
"The interactive features that appear in the report were good. The external rendering option they give with multi servers was also good."
"It is scalable and integration-friendly."
"The product is very mature. It's quite robust and an excellent enterprise-level solution."
"The product is easily customized."
"A valuable feature is the speed of the solution."
"It's great for consolidation and creating one source of truth."
"The technical support is excellent, and they respond quickly."
"The solution can scale."
"The specific capability I find important in Oracle Analytics Cloud is that it allows the basic user to easily drag and drop data. I also like that the solution allows the user to decide what to measure and what to see in the reports."
"The AI/ML enablement is useful, as many reporting tools do not offer machine learning models as of now, without writing customized code."
"This is a stable and scalable solution."
"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."
"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 improve migration automation. Additionally, I would like there to be better partnership support."
"I would like to see more integration."
"The learning curve is quite steep."
"Its price should be lower. In terms of features, what we have is quite encompassing right now."
"MicroStrategy should become more user friendly. It should behave more like Tableau."
"It would be good if it had greater analytics so we could build these visualizations by ourselves with scripts."
"It is expensive."
"When we have, for example, a table with low performance, we have several issues with drawing some graphics in the Oracle cloud."
"The price of the solution could be lower."
"The solution could be more flexible."
"This solution could be more adaptable in its application."
"The interfaces could be improved and some in-memory operations could be built in."
"They could improve the ease of developing the dashboard and interacting with it."
"It's not a failure of the product; it's just an architectural choice. It has to do with data modeling. I'm comparing this to another product, which is Oracle's developer client and probably called Oracle BI Developer Client Tool. The data modeler, which is cloud-based, and Oracle BI Developer Client Tool, which is local or on-premises-based, both can do the same thing in data modeling. However, the cloud tool does not have as many features as the Oracle BI Developer Client Tool, which is closest to the OBIEE Administration Tool with full feature data modeling, metadata development, and so forth. In a complex environment or implementation, that is the capability that you need."
