  • MicroStrategy's leading BI Platform and why companies continue to choose it to deliver mission-critical reports and dashboards to business users via the web and Microsoft desktop tools.  A large number of MicroStrategy customers will be discussing how MicroStrategy's BI products have dramatically improved their operating results or corporate performance.

The event will highlight mobile solutions for field sales reps with pre-meeting analysis, product videos, sales presentations and access to sales force automation (SFA) systems, making them more effective and productive.
  • MicroStrategy Cloud™, a BI platform-as-a-service offering, and how it allows companies to deploy BI apps and mobile apps using MicroStrategy's BI Platform and MicroStrategy's Mobile App Platform more quickly and with lower financial risk than with traditional on-premises solutions.
