What's New in MicroStrategy

MicroStrategy 2020

MicroStrategy 2020 is the platform built to achieve Intelligence Everywhere. It delivers high performance, governance, and security via an open and comprehensive architecture. Plus, it’s the world’s first enterprise platform built for HyperIntelligence®, the technology breakthrough that makes the entire enterprise both hyperintelligent and hyperproductive.

For Business Users

For Analysts

For Administrators and Developers

New for Business Users

Empower 100% of your workforce with the analytics and insights to run a better business.

HyperWeb on Microsoft Edge

HyperWeb is now available on Microsoft Edge, along with other major browsers like Google Chrome—so users can access HyperIntelligence® within the tools they already use.

HyperMobile Calendar Integration

Get the information you need to be prepared for every meeting. Update 3 provides enhanced integration between the HyperMobile app and the native iOS calendar. The new calendar tab within the HyperMobile app gives users instant access to relevant information about all their meetings and events—past, present, and future.

New for Analysts

Powerful enhancements that allow analysts get even more from tools they love, on the platform they trust.

Custom Shapefiles with Mapbox

Deploy custom shapefiles and plot non-standard geographic attributes—like department, sales territory, region, and more—as area maps within a dossier. Analysts now have greater flexibility when visualizing geospatial information, moving beyond standard attributes like country, state, and postal code.

Out-of-the-box Survey Widget

Integrate surveys and survey results from SurveyGizmo or SurveyMonkey into dossiers. Map data from attributes and metrics to custom variables in a survey and allow users to fill in information when accessing the dossier from MicroStrategy consumer interfaces, MicroStrategy Library, or MicroStrategy Mobile. Answers will then be reflected directly in the survey.

Introducing the Compound Grid

View data through multiple lenses instead of a cross tab single lens. Compound grids enable users to combine lenses in a single view, pivoted around the primary dimension. Users can build complex grids by positioning attributes and metrics in different groups of columns.

Free-form Layouts for Custom Designs

Organize and overlap visualizations, filters, selectors, images, and HTML containers within dossiers. Each container can now be independently positioned, sized, and layered on every page. Just choose the free-form button in the top menu to convert your canvas to the new layout.

Jupyter and RStudio

MicroStrategy 2020 offers a new product built for data scientists: MicroStrategy for Jupyter and MicroStrategy for RStudio. Bring trusted, governed data from MicroStrategy directly into their predictive analytics projects to build better models.

New for Administrators and Developers

Enhancements for both AWS and Azure deployments that increase parity and performance.

Access Schema and Application Objects within Workstation

Administrators use Workstation to view, copy, move, rename, delete, or change the ACL permissions for all the MicroStrategy schema objects and application objects in the same project. Schema objects include attributes, facts, hierarchies, partition mapping, and more, while application objects include prompts, reports, searches, and more.

Create and Modify Metrics in Workstation

Architects can now view, create, and edit standalone metrics without leaving the Workstation interface. Metrics edited at the project or application level will be available for reuse in multiple dossiers, reports, documents, and even across users. All dependent objects are automatically updated when a metric is edited.
