The partnership between the business intelligence company and the leading software value-added reseller aims to help regional organizations overcome the bottlenecks in adopting AI and analytics approaches in the region.
Microstrategy (Nasdaq: MSTR), the largest independent publicly-traded business intelligence company, today announced a strategic partnership with Magnoos Information Systems, which is a part of Midis Group and the leading software value-added reseller in the MENA. This partnership centers on developing platform-neutral analytics-driven solutions to help organizations consume business insights with ease and facilitate quick decision-making with actionable intelligence.
According to IDC, spending on big data analytics is expected to grow by 8.1% in 2022 to reach USD 3 billion in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa region. This statistic reinforces regional organizations’ interest in powering their operations, customer engagement processes, and overall business growth with technologies driven by data and analytics.
Microstrategy makes this process simpler and easier with its industry-first HyperIntelligence solution. The cutting-edge HyperIntelligence solution directly injects AI and analytics capabilities into third-party business platforms such as Oracle & SAP ERP Suite, IBM Maximo, Microsoft Dynamics, and other platforms used by organizations. With zero clicks required, intelligence on customers, products, customer journeys, preferences, etc., is fed directly into applications and devices used by employees in the form of simple cards.
For example, a healthcare professional who needs to manage patient queries physically and virtually, in addition to addressing numerous emails flooding their inbox. Responding to queries swiftly or doing follow-ups becomes increasingly difficult under pressure. Questions like how long has an individual been a patient of the clinic? What is his patient history? When should the patient come for a check-up? Answers to these questions require the healthcare professional to toggle between various applications and dashboards and maybe send emails to various departments requesting certain information. HyperIntelligence eliminates all these steps and allows the healthcare professional to hover over a keyword such as a patient’s name on their web application or even in an email and gain real-time insights with zero clicks. Essential intelligence is combined and delivered in a card format that will pop up on the screen and the card will contain all the required information. Furthermore, the user can drill down on any of this card information in a seamless fashion. Integrating the HyperIntelligence solution directly into websites or applications takes employee productivity to a new level.
