MicroStrategy Inc. (NASDAQ: MSTR) said that Best in Biz Awards 2014 International has named MicroStrategy Analytics Desktop the gold winner in the consumer category for the Best New Product of the Year.
Best in Biz Awards International sets innovative, high-profile global businesses against each other in a showcase of top performers and is the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
MicroStrategy Analytics Desktop is a self-service application that enables instant access and exploration of data with interactive visualizations. It is a free, user-friendly data discovery tool that empowers business users to analyze and understand data, without specialized expertise, and easily share insights with others.
MicroStrategy Analytics Desktop puts powerful analytics that would cost thousands of dollars from other vendors in the hands of business users for free. It is also the first step on a seamless upgrade path to the powerful, comprehensive MicroStrategy Analytics Platform when (and if) user requirements progress beyond desktop-based self-service data visualization. The company said that enterprise users of its software focus on providing fully governed data discovery so that there is no need to compromise between self-service and governance when it comes to their information assets.
