BI Integration

Using the Visual Crossing MicroStrategy Integration, the power of the MicroStrategy business intelligence platform can be combined with the power of Visual Crossing Map Services to provide analysis of your data’s visual trends to your users.

Visual Crossing’s MicroStrategy Visualization Extensions provide a seamless integration between the power of the MicroStrategy platform and the power of the Spatial Map Server. The full visualization creation, viewing, and analysis lifecycle is available from within the MicroStrategy Web product enabling your users to easily switch between viewing modes. True web-based integration.

A true integration requires a great attention to detail and understanding of the MicroStrategy platform. Visual Crossing developers include MicroStrategy experts who have created the closest integration between MicroStrategy Web and a visualization solution ever seen. Rather than a thin veneer based on insecure and non-standard techniques such as URL APIs and ‘iframe’ technologies, the Visual Crossing MicroStrategy Extensions offer unparalleled integration from the browsing experience of map icons in folder browsing to full integration with data manipulation such as page-by, pivoting and OLAP Services functionality such as view filter – even advanced analytic capabilities such as prompting and drilling. And when the result is ready, the visualization can be printed using the MicroStrategy Web printing functionality or included in a Report Services document or Dashboard. It is unparalleled integration across all aspects of the MicroStrategy platform.

Visual Crossing’s MicroStrategy integration maintain a commitment to the standards included in MicroStrategy Web and so all visualization generation is fully asynchronous and all output fully conforms to HTML standards – there is no need to download and install binary components to access any of the functionality. To communicate back to the Spatial Server, web services are used from the MicroStrategy Web machine – no connection is made from the browser back to the Spatial Server. It is this use of MicroStrategy Web that enables such a powerful integration.
