MicroStrategy Analytics Enterprise for Business Intelligence on AWS

With more and more enterprises moving their applications and their data warehouses to the AWS Cloud (often with the help of Amazon Redshift), there’s a ready market for cloud-based Business Intelligence (BI) tools. A good Business Intelligence tool can help you to make sense of the data that your organzation generates, collects, and stores. You might want to analyze or aggregate complex data sets across multiple dimensions, make statistical inferences, or generate visually appealing reports quickly and efficiently.

I am pleased to announce that the MicroStrategy Analytics Enterprise solution is now available on the AWS Marketplace on a monthly subscription basis. This powerful tool supports a very wide variety of new-age and traditional data sources and is able to scale up in order to meet ever-increasing demands for analytics, reports, and data visualizations.

You can purchase a license for 25, 50 or even 100 users in the Marketplace. Each option includes access to MicroStrategy Mobile Analytics and MicroStrategy Visual Insight, as well as a complementary on-boarding session with a Certified MicroStrategy Sales Engineer and access to Standard Support Services. The monthly subscription fee for the 25 user option is just $500. Above that, you pay for the processing and storage resources on a per-hour or per-GB basis, as appropriate. For example, you can host 25 users on an EC2 m2.2xlarge instance with over 17 Gigabytes of RAM for $2000.48 per month, plus any Elastic Block Storage allocated by the application. In other words, you don’t need to be a traditional “enterprise” to afford enterprise-class Business Intelligence.

After you launch MicroStrategy Analytics Enterprise from the AWS Marketplace, you simply initiate an RDP session to connect to the EC2 instance so that you can configure and customize the product:

If you are ready to get started, visit the AWS Marketplace and launch the MicroStrategy Analytics Engine.
