MicroStrategy UK, a leading provider of business intelligence software, today announced that it has signed a reseller agreement with Kognitio, a leading provider of solutions to business problems that require acquisition, rationalization and analysis of both large and complex data.
Through this alliance, Kognitio will combine MicroStrategy´s business intelligence reporting with Kognitio´s powerful and scalable analytical database, WX2. Organisations will be able to analyse multi-billion row data sets within seconds, as opposed to hours or days, and deliver results effectively to a wide range of users, enabling enhanced data-driven decision-making for key operational activities.
The Kognitio WX2 analytical database delivers fast, direct responses from queries run on large volumes of data, giving up to a 60x improvement in query times when compared to large-scale, highly-tuned systems running standard relational databases. MicroStrategy´s flexible reporting complements WX2 by empowering business users to create and refine their own web-based reports on query results, without IT involvement, and move between related scorecards and dashboards, dramatically reducing the report development cycle.
“Kognitio is pleased to expand its long-standing relationship with MicroStrategy,” commented Roger Llewellyn, managing director, Kognitio. “Together, MicroStrategy´s flexible reporting platform and Kognitio´s fast and highly scalable analytical database are well-suited for enterprises with demanding BI requirements, such as those in retail, healthcare, telecommunications and financial services.”
“The synergies between Kognitio and MicroStrategy will enable greater insights to be delivered more effectively and efficiently to a wider range of users within an organisation,” explained Tony Bethell, UK General Manager, MicroStrategy. “Performance and scalability are vital to today´s data-rich organisations and this alliance will deliver greater visibility into their operations for improved decision-making.”
