MicroStrategy Cloud Express Brings Business Intelligence to the Cloud

MicroStrategy last week launched its Cloud Express service offering, which aims to deliver a self-service approach to business analytics. The new Express offering builds on the MicroStrategy Platform cloud offering that debuted in 2011.

“We have built on top of the platform a very streamlined application that enables any organization to quickly and easily sign up and get started with their own analytic activities,” said Kevin Spurway, VP of cloud services and strategic marketing.

The service can handle data from varied sources, ranging from an Excel spreadsheet to a Salesforce.com application to an existing relational database. Users can import data into an in-memory application, where MicroStrategy visualizes it and makes sense of it all.

Spurway added that users can also easily create a dashboard using different visualizations. The analysis can then be shared with others via the Web or even a mobile application.
