Distribute Interactive Dashboards for Offline Access
MicroStrategy 10.6 provides several features that make it easier to
deliver and consume analytics across MicroStrategy Desktop,
MicroStrategy Web, MicroStrategy Mobile and Usher™. Version 10.6 allows
users to easily distribute and share MicroStrategy files. These files,
which are proprietary dashboard files that are formatted for offline
interactivity, can be combined with MicroStrategy Server™'s distribution
services to enable users to:
schedule the delivery of interactive dashboards for offline analysis
based on time, event or threshold triggers;
subscribe to dashboards with flexible formatting and delivery options
that can be managed by the end user;
perform high-volume report and dashboard bursting in order to reach
thousands of users in a highly optimized manner, without running
different reports for every user;
dynamically personalize dashboards, so end users receive relevant,
secure information that is based on preconfigured security filters and
language options; and
secure the distribution of MicroStrategy files by halting deliveries
when security rules are broken during distribution or subscription.
MicroStrategy files bundle the design components that define a
dashboard, such as filters, visualizations, selectors, color themes and
logos, as well as the underlying data or database connection
information. Users can open, interact and edit MicroStrategy files using
MicroStrategy Desktop, even when offline.
Redesigned PDF Export Engine
MicroStrategy 10.6 delivers a revamped export engine with new
capabilities that enhance the ability to share dashboards in PDF format.
The new export engine is a separate micro-service and is installed along
with MicroStrategy Server, providing flexible deployment options and
improved product stability to MicroStrategy customers.
This new feature gives MicroStrategy Web users the ability to generate
formatted PDF files with support for maps, D3 and other custom
visualizations, HTML containers and HTML-tag based content. Smart
pagination capabilities translate dashboard content within the PDF into
separate pages, making it incredibly easy to deliver large grid reports
that clearly display rows and columns in a highly formatted manner.
Additional highlights include support for dashboards with multiple
sheets and panels, PDF bookmarks for enhanced organization and easy
navigation, and embedded images.
New Unified Map Visualization
The MicroStrategy 10.6 feature release also offers enhanced mapping
capabilities for MicroStrategy Desktop, MicroStrategy Web and
MicroStrategy Mobile. The latest version offers a unified map
visualization that allows users to seamlessly share geospatial
information on both Google and ESRI-based maps. Additionally, the new
map visualizations let users plot multiple layers of information
simultaneously on a single map. Dashboard designers and analysts can
choose from multiple graphic styles, such as markers, bubbles, colored
areas or polygons, and density maps. Users can also include pie or ring
charts on map visualizations, making it easier to visualize dimensional
data on a map.
