There are many features that have been suggested by the community that aren't in place yet. The solution needs a Top 10 reports, for example. Right now, we have to apply many workarounds for the solution to do what we need it to do. There are a lot of bugs. In the future, I would love to see machine learning achieved through MicroStrategy.

The documentation of how to make different connections to different databases needs to be more centralized. It becomes confusing when we have to search for this information on Google and elsewhere. I would like to see more clarity with respect to the cloud integration because it is a hot topic right now.

I think they are working on improvements and are in the process of changing the development to be more GUI-based rather than code-based. I think that will be good, we're waiting for that transition. I think the skills needed now are very niche and quite low level and they need to simplify the development aspect of it. They have a feature called transaction services and as an additional feature, I'd like to see that in the dossier, which is your build-it-yourself front-end. If we can get to where you can build forms and write back and transaction services from that interface, it would be great.

The pricing needs improvement, it need to lower prices per user to make it more accessible. In terms of new features, I'm not sure what can be improved. I need to do more research before I comment on anything like that.

The user interface needs improvement. It needs to be more intuitive. The solution needs to enhance its integration servers. The requirements needed to deploy the solution could be improved.

In the dossier section, they have something called documents, which is very good, but they are implementing something called dossiers also. If we compare it with the BI tools like Tableau, the canvas which MicroStrategy provides is not that great. The formatting options are limited is dossiers. In terms of formatting and making the reports more presentable, it's lagging a little bit behind. I believe in a future release they already have scheduled hyper-voice and hyper-screen features. It will be very good when these are added to the solution.

I can't comment on setup cost but we pay an annual maintenance fee and that includes support and upgrades.
