As MicroStrategy Incorporated, a leading worldwide provider of enterprise software platforms, began its 19th annual user conference this week from the Miami Beach Convention Center, QStride CEO Shane Gianino announced the launch of their MicroStrategy Development Center that will encourage the retention of BI jobs in the United States rather than letting jobs go offshore.

“As we continue to grow our operation, it is important that we bring and retain top technology talent in the heart of downtown Detroit,” said Shane Gianino, CEO of QStride. “Furthermore, this ensures jobs stay in the United States rather than going overseas, which is all too common.”
MicroStrategy’s conference in Miami features more than 160 inspiring sessions and 50 customer speakers.
“This conference—and what MicroStrategy does at the heart of its business—focuses on empowering the user community with an unique, fully unified platform architecture that is built to handle the demands of the enterprise so they can increase company performance and make better business decisions,” Gianino added. “We’re training specialized workers who will be able to extract value from big data to create intuitive and seamlessly designed Web and mobile business intelligence applications. These are well paying jobs being brought to the heart of a technology hub in downtown Detroit.”
David Meadow, Chief Information Officer of Lane Automotive in Watervliet, MI, is one of the first to take advantage of the onsite/offsite model. “Given the complexity and scope of our IT initiatives, we take an agile approach to talent acquisition by scaling our technical resources according to our project landscape,” said David Meadow of Lane Automotive. “We needed to identify and cultivate vendor relationships that would facilitate our Dev-Ops objectives by delivering, consistently, resources that possessed the skill sets required to produce results. QStride is our vendor of choice for fulfilling these requirements. Shane and his team have worked diligently over the past sixteen months to fill a myriad of roles spanning from BI to general IT technologies. They have delivered true value to our IT organization.”
MicroStrategy Education accelerates the success of individuals interested in BI by providing traditional classroom training and online instruction based on a self-based system. Once certified, employees become “MicroStrategy masters,” who are capable of creating noteworthy productivity gains as well as personal and professional growth.
