Update on MicroStrategy 8:
Launched earlier this year, MicroStrategy 8 provides fully integrated reporting, analysis, and dashboarding capabilities. The MicroStrategy 8 user interface has been redesigned to greatly improve productivity for business people. Unlike products that require technically-trained developers for report development, MicroStrategy 8 enables business people to format reports and scorecards in WYSIWYG (what-you-see-is-what-you-get) mode. These business people can control the content and structure of their own reports with minimal assistance from IT staff.
On July 14, 2005, MicroStrategy announced the release of MicroStrategy 8 for 64-bit Linux and the new high-capacity, entry-level servers containing 64- bit x86 processors. MicroStrategy customers now have additional operating system and hardware options to increase the performance and value of their BI systems. MicroStrategy 8's 64-bit architecture enables customers to run more applications and support larger numbers of users per server, and our support for Linux provides customers with increased operating system flexibility for deployment of their business intelligence applications.
