The leader in the BI analytics platform sphere, and the preferred BI tool by Vortisieze, MicroStrategy is now allowing users to enjoy the richness of data that Hadoop allows.
- MicroStrategy Inc.’s has launched a major upgrade to its namesake business intelligence platform that promises to help organizations make more out of the vast troves of data they’re storing in Hadoop. That’s done through improved connector bundled natively into the new release.
- MicroStrategy 10 enables analysts to manipulate imported information using new search and visualization functionality that the company says removes the need to use external tools for that job. That avoids the overhead associated with moving files back and forth, which can amount to significant time savings at the petabyte scale in which many production-grade Hadoop clusters operate.
- The company promises to take even more delay out of the equation with optimizations to its multi-dimensional analytic algorithms, which now makes it possible to put more data into the logical constructs used to group similar metrics for faster queries. MicroStrategy said that the update has helped PayPal, Inc. achieve sub-second response times for 400-gigabyte workloads.
- Analysts can take advantage of that performance through the improved interface also introduced in the new release, which is extended to mobile devices with a new companion app that can track the the performance of each user. The client also includes a badge-based security system that allows administrators to control who can access what and how.
