Suitable for multi-tenant SaaS deployments
MicroStrategy, a provider of business intelligence software, has enhanced its OEM program with new product capabilities for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies.
The company claimed that its business intelligence platform provides integrated reporting and analytics, allowing software companies and technology providers to add reporting, dashboarding, analytical, and alerting applications to their existing product offerings.
The company’s latest release, MicroStrategy 9, reportedly offers new capabilities specifically for SaaS companies. These new capabilities include end user design features, in-memory BI enabling data scalability to support larger multi-tenant systems, security integration with third-party tools, a plug-in architecture for simpler customisation, and the ability for different companies to use their own reporting terminology, across multiple languages within the same multi-tenant application.
The company’s BI platform is suited to meet the demands of SaaS BI deployments as it offers features that include: comprehensive security model to distribute and protect sensitive data; open platform to accommodate customisation, user personalisation, and rebranding; and development capabilities to support internationalisation and dialects, the company said.
Sanju Bansal, COO of MicroStrategy, said: “SaaS BI solutions are an increasingly appealing alternative for organisations that need to share essential business intelligence data across the organisation, but lack sufficient resources to implement and maintain these technologies in-house. Companies that offer a SaaS model will find that MicroStrategy enables them to build a flexible and scalable, multi-tenant BI architecture in a highly cost-effective manner.”
