The MicroStrategy Education team, which I have the distinct privilege of leading, exists to deliver customer-focused opportunities for learning about the MicroStrategy platform and making the most of all it has to offer. This year, we’re releasing a comprehensive MicroStrategy course catalog to provide our customers a holistic view of our version 10 course content, delivery formats, and learning tracks for all roles and levels.
We know that time can be an issue in today’s fast-paced workplaces. We also know that people – from analysts and administrators to developers and hobbyists – learn how to work with, and analyze data, differently. That’s why we strive every day to improve the educational experience for users of all levels and competencies.
We’re proud of all the opportunities the rollout of our 2017 Course Catalog offers our enterprise customers and potential users.
Here’s a snapshot of what’s new and exciting in 2017:
- MicroStrategy Education FY 2017 Catalog
Our newly released catalog reflects the necessary skills and course content needed to optimize an organization’s investment in MicroStrategy. We take user feedback seriously and, rest assured, the courses listed in the catalog have been built not just off of internal expertise, but also on your input. In the last year alone, we have doubled the volume of courses that we offer and expanded our focus to include Specialist and Master levels for Analysts, Administrators, and SDK Developers.
- MicroStrategy Certifications for Analysts, Administrators and SDK Developers
You’ve made a significant investment in MicroStrategy and it's essential that you have individuals in your organization that can be MicroStrategy gurus. These are the folks you want to entrust with administering the platform, developing applications, and building reports and dashboards that your organization can leverage. For this reason we have introduced 10 brand-new certifications that are project-based and designed to test your employees' real-world knowledge of MicroStrategy. Build expertise and a center of excellence with our version 10 certifications.
- New E-learning Modules for the Enterprise
We recognize that every organization has time constraints and that individuals learn in a variety of ways. We are committed to helping organizations with a large number of business users make the best of the MicroStrategy platform. Our Enterprise E-courseware offering is an ideal solution for organizations with 30 or more MicroStrategy Web licenses. In essence we have taken our most popular instructor-led courses for business users and converted them to self-paced modules. We are offering five of our most popular courses right now – with another five scheduled to be delivered over the next few months. These modules can be stored on your internal LMS so you are able to track usage, scores, and other metrics. If you are trying to move the needle on MicroStrategy use in your organization, this is the right offering for you.
