MicroStrategy Incorporated, a provider of enterprise analytics and mobility software, unveiled the availability of new connectors to data discovery vendors at its annual user conference MicroStrategy World 2018.
With this announcement, users can connect to Microsoft Power BI, Qlik Technologies, and Tableau Software and leverage MicroStrategy 10.
These new connectors help promote a more open and powerful analytics ecosystem by enabling business users of different discovery tools to bridge applications across their enterprise.
Users of Power BI, Qlik, and Tableau can now connect to their MicroStrategy systems and experience the best of both worlds: the individual features they want from data discovery tools and a robust enterprise environment with governance, security, and scalability for their analytics applications.
“We see business users buying data discovery tools just like they purchase a commodity on Amazon,” added Tim Lang, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, MicroStrategy Incorporated. “While they can begin a conversation about their data, these conversations all too often turn into dead ends because no one can trust all of the different answers that come from having multiple applications and data silos. With these new MicroStrategy connectors, users can keep using their data discovery tools and fully leverage MicroStrategy 10 to get one version of the truth, in a more secure, scalable, and governed environment.”
By using MicroStrategy reports and dossiers as data sources for Power BI, Qlik, and Tableau, organizations can leverage certified and tested data models with their existing investments.
Users of these data discovery solutions can gain access to a significantly broader range of reusable objects. Users can securely reuse foundational objects like metrics and dimensions, all the way to reports, dashboards, and even mobile apps hundreds of times across multiple applications.
