Business Intelligence software provider MicroStrategy said that it is offering an interface between its free reporting software package MicroStrategy Reporting Suite and Microsoft Analysis Services. Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services (SSAS) provides online analytical processing and data mining functionality for business intelligence applications.
MicroStrategy Reporting Suite is a reporting and analysis tool that allows business users to interface with SSAS data, enabling basic and advanced analysis, ad hoc reporting and data visualisation. Its free reporting software package is suitable for small to mid-sized businesses and departments in any size organisation that need an integrated, self-service BI offering for Microsoft SSAS.
According to MicroStrategy, the reporting software package provides web-based reporting of Microsoft SSAS data for up to 100 users. Some of the capabilities available from using MicroStrategy Reporting Suite with Microsoft SSAS include, build reports and performance scorecards against SQL server analysis services data; report, analyse, and monitor SSAS data via intuitive web-based interface; and visualise data using graphs and performance scorecards.
In addition, it also performs business calculations and build advanced analytics against SSAS data; schedule reports to run to a personalised history list and export to Microsoft Excel and PDF.
Sanju Bansal, COO of MicroStrategy, said: The integration of MicroStrategy Reporting Suite with Microsoft Analysis Services enables business users to leverage actionable information easily from Microsoft SQL Server relational and cube data sources. MicroStrategy Reporting Suite extends Microsoft SSAS data analysis to all users, empowering them to readily discover trends and anomalies in convenient web-based reports.
