The Gartner BI & Analytics Summit is one of the premier business analytics event providing must-have insights, frameworks and best practices for maximizing the business impact of information management and business analytics programs.

Qstride, one of the leading business intelligence firms in the U.S. who is also a MicroStrategy valued-added reseller and partner, will reveal one of its Mobile Business Intelligence applications to an expected 1,200 attendees at the awe-inspiring Gaylord Texan Hotel & Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas.

Gartner which publishes its Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms Report* yearly positioned MicroStrategy in the Leaders Quadrant.  Leaders are vendors that are strong in the breadth and depth of their BI platform capabilities, and can deliver on enterprise wide implementations that support a broad BI strategy. Leaders articulate a business proposition that resonates with buyers, supported by the viability and operational capability to deliver on a global basis. Small vendors, which may lack strong scores for geographic or vertical strategy, or breadth of capabilities in the offering (product) criterion, are still Leaders due to the strength of their market understanding and marketing strategy. The evidence that they are market leaders comes from the fact that most of the market is trying to imitate the simplicity of their architecture and the ease of use that it provides.

“Mobile Business Intelligence gives leaders access to specific company metrics that allow them to make better business decisions faster that affect the bottom line in the power of their hands in real-time,” said Shane Gianino, Vice President of National Business Development at Qstride.  “Chairman and CEO of MicroStrategy Michael Saylor wrote a book titled The Mobile Wave.  It describes how Mobile intelligence will change how businesses operate and change entire industries including the economies they power.  As research data indicates, we are seeing a large number of companies undertaking Mobile BI due to the need for higher efficiency in business processes.”
