Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of seven. I don't think I would recommend this solution to others. There are better reporting solutions out there.

I do find I need to use a lot of workarounds and reach out to the community a lot to ask questions. The company I work with is small, so we don't require too much strength from the solution. I would definitely recommend the solution to others. I'm still working with MicroStrategy and want to grow more on the MicroStrategy front. There's a lot to learn with new features coming out soon. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

I'd say if any user or any set of users are looking to get more insights from the raw data that they have collected over the course of years, one of the best BI tools in terms of analytics and data management would be MicroStrategy. You can develop pretty much everything from scratch. If you are looking to get more meaningful information out of data, I would recommend this solution. From an architectural perspective, this is a good solution. However, there are a few things that can be improved. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

There are a lot of visualization tools, but not many enterprise BI tools. If you are going to run an enterprise shop for a big organization, don't pick the small tools designed for small team reporting otherwise you're going to really encounter barriers. MicroStrategy fits best in an enterprise setup. I would rate this product a nine out of ten.

We use the cloud deployment model and use both Microsoft as well as AWS as providers. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
