TYSONS CORNER, Va., Oct. 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- MicroStrategy® Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of enterprise software platforms, today announced that its joint customers with Teradata Corporation (NYSE: TDC) will be able to benefit from governed data discovery and sub-second response rates with MicroStrategy 10.1. MicroStrategy is a Diamond Sponsor at Teradata 2015 PARTNERS Conference & Expo taking place this week in Anaheim, CA, where attendees can see a demonstration of MicroStrategy 10.1's capabilities in both a track session on Monday, October 19 at 1:30pm-2:15pm in room 202AB and at MicroStrategy's exhibition booth #207. MicroStrategy business and technical experts will be on hand to showcase MicroStrategy 10.1, which delivers a host of new features and functionality that range from usability upgrades and UX enhancements to further improvements in performance and support for Big Data.
This is the eighth consecutive year that MicroStrategy has supported Teradata PARTNERS at the Diamond Sponsorship level.
"Over our 18-year relationship, we have collaborated with Teradata on every level to design, promote, and support complementary product offerings that deliver continuous improvement and satisfaction to many of the world's biggest brands," said Paul Zolfaghari, President, MicroStrategy Incorporated. "Business and technology leaders choose MicroStrategy not as a pilot or a one-off project, but as an across-the-board enterprise analytics solution—one that balances the nimbleness of visual data discovery with the fundamental enterprise requirements of governance, scale, and performance."
"Companies in every industry possess astounding amounts of data, with those data volumes expected to grow exponentially in the foreseeable future," said Sean Slack, Vice President Global Alliances and Strategic Partnerships, Teradata. "When customers use MicroStrategy together with Teradata, they are positioned to scale to the rising data requirements tied to the future of enterprise software and Big Data analytics. MicroStrategy is a dedicated partner that understands how crucial it is for our joint customers to transform their Big Data into useful insights so they can make meaningful decisions about their customers, products, competitors, and markets. With MicroStrategy 10.1 and the Teradata Database, leading companies can harness our combined technologies to run more efficiently, innovate more rapidly, and serve customers more effectively."
Governed data discovery with enterprise sources like Teradata's is one of the many key improvements delivered in MicroStrategy 10.1, making it easy for business users to discover, analyze, and distribute valid analytics throughout an organization. With MicroStrategy 10.1, Teradata customers can deploy self-service analytics to the entire organization, giving business users the ability to promote data mashups or dashboards to a centralized environment. Business users also have the ability to swap out localized data with trusted and modeled Teradata enterprise data to ensure consistent KPIs across the deployment. From there, business users can easily share their findings in a personalized manner using powerful dashboard and report delivery options available with MicroStrategy.
In addition to governed data discovery, MicroStrategy users will benefit from sub-second response rates while accessing relational data with optimized and native Teradata connectors, and also leverage the processing power of Teradata to the fullest extent by intelligently pushing data joins and complex calculations to the Teradata database when possible. In this way, customers of MicroStrategy and Teradata gain the speed and flexibility of data discovery without sacrificing the scalability, security, and trust of a governed enterprise analytics environment.
Released last month, MicroStrategy 10.1 includes hundreds of new and improved features and a wide range of performance enhancements across the product platform. Further extending the self-service capabilities of MicroStrategy 10 Secure Enterprise™, the MicroStrategy Desktop™ 10.1 and MicroStrategy Web™ 10.1 software releases add new enhancements for enterprise data discovery users, enabling data preparation and data wrangling across more data sources, while delivering a clean, new look with modern grid styles, navigation, and consolidated views and search. Other highlights include new capabilities for D3 visualizations, ESRI geospatial visualizations, and iOS 9 support within MicroStrategy Mobile™ and custom Mobile Productivity Apps.
