MicroStrategy augments OEM program with new product capabilities for SaaS companies

MCLEAN, Va., Aug. 18, 2009 -- MicroStrategy(R) Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence (BI) software, today announced that it has enhanced its OEM program with new product capabilities for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies.

MicroStrategy's business intelligence platform provides integrated reporting and analytics, allowing software companies and technology providers to easily add reporting, dashboarding, analytical, and alerting applications to their existing product offerings with minimal development costs and resources. SaaS companies often select MicroStrategy for its scalability, open platform for customizability, and security capabilities.

MicroStrategy's latest release, MicroStrategy 9, offers new capabilities specifically for SaaS companies. These new capabilities include enhanced end user design features, in-memory BI enabling higher data scalability to support larger multi-tenant systems, improved security integration with third-party tools, a plug-in architecture for simpler customization, and the ability for different companies to use their own reporting terminology, even across multiple languages within the same multi-tenant application.

The MicroStrategy BI platform is well-suited to meet the demands of SaaS BI deployments:

Scalability and high performance for expanding multi-tenant environments

Unified metadata to minimize development and maintenance efforts

Centralized administration to reduce support costs and effort

Comprehensive security model to distribute and protect sensitive data

User scalability to thousands of users

Ease of use for a diverse user community

Open platform to accommodate customization, user personalization, and rebranding

Development capabilities to support internationalization and dialects

MicroStrategy's portfolio of OEM Partners has continued to expand, and companies choosing MicroStrategy for SaaS BI deployments have represented the largest area of growth within the OEM program. Some of the SaaS companies that recently joined MicroStrategy's OEM program include Autologue (US), Claritum (UK), FreeWheel Media (US), GAPbuster (Australia), TradeBeam (US), and Xtiva (US).

"MicroStrategy's BI platform contains the security, customization, and end user self-service Web capabilities required to offer a single hardware, software, and application solution, while still meeting customer-specific requirements," said Daniel Schmidt, CIO of Constellation Software. "MicroStrategy's ability to do this, while at the same time being able to scale to large numbers of users and large amounts of data, makes the MicroStrategy BI platform well-suited for multi-tenant SaaS deployments."

"SaaS BI solutions are an increasingly appealing alternative for organizations that need to share essential business intelligence data across the organization, but lack sufficient resources to implement and maintain these technologies in-house," said Sanju Bansal, MicroStrategy COO. "Companies that offer a SaaS model will find that MicroStrategy enables them to build a flexible and scalable, multi-tenant BI architecture in a highly cost-effective manner."
