TYSONS CORNER, Va., Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MicroStrategy® Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of enterprise software platforms, today announced that it received a gold Stevie® Award in the Best New Business-to-Business Product category for its innovative self-service analytics solution, MicroStrategy Express™, at the 11th annual American Business Awards in San Francisco. The Stevie® Awards, as they are commonly known, are among the nation's premier business awards, recognizing achievements by public, private, for profit and non-profit organizations.
MicroStrategy Express earned silver awards in the categories of Best New Business-to-Business Service and Best New Mobile Operations Management Solution, as well as bronze awards in the categories of Best New Business Intelligence Solution and Best New Cloud Application. In addition, MicroStrategy Express earned three People's Choice Stevie Awards in the categories of Favorite Business-to-Business Product, Favorite Cloud Application, and Favorite Mobile On-Demand Solution.
"We are honored to be recognized by The American Business Awards," said Sanju Bansal, Vice Chairman of the Board and Executive Vice President, MicroStrategy Incorporated. "This distinction further strengthens our commitment to visual analytics and cloud computing, and reinforces our belief that companies want self-service BI tools without compromising on security and data governance."
MicroStrategy Express is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution designed to help business people instantly access data, explore it visually, and easily share insights with others. With Express, MicroStrategy provides an alternative to competing products from unproven startups that promise self-service but fail to deliver the visual data discovery capabilities or sophisticated analytics needed to solve many real-world business problems. Express, available as a free trial, delivers the best of both worlds by combining the agility and simplicity of SaaS with the analytical depth and scalability of a world-class enterprise BI platform.
