MicroStrategy Incorporated, a leading worldwide provider of business
intelligence software, today announced that it has entered the query and
reporting market with the launch of version 7.1 of its business
intelligence platform MicroStrategy. MicroStrategy 7 is a scalable
business intelligence platform built specifically for the Internet.
With version 7.1, MicroStrategy has enhanced MicroStrategy 7 for the
query and reporting space with an intuitive, Web-centric interface,
improved application integration capabilities and additional tools to
expedite deployment for its customers and partners.

"MicroStrategy is one of the most experienced OLAP players in the market
offering its customers a platform that enriches their business and hence
sharpens their competitive edge," commented Bob Skeens, UK country
manager, MicroStrategy. "With the scalable query and reporting features,
our new 7.1 platform is now the easiest business intelligence platform
to use and integrate, thus giving our customers further flexibility in
accessing business-critical information."

Dan Veest, senior analyst, IDC Research said of the upgraded platform,
"MicroStrategy 7.1 combines the power of the platform with the ease of
use and deployability of a true Query and Reporting toolset, giving
enterprises a strong solution to provide users with the intelligence
they need."

In a continued effort to make MicroStrategy 7 the easiest to use query,
reporting and analysis system, MicroStrategy included dynamic HTML
(DHTML), enhanced prompts and pop-up drilling menus in version 7.1.
Combined with the enterprise reporting capabilities of MicroStrategy Web
Viewer these features deliver sophisticated analytical functions in an
intuitive, Web-based reporting environment by aiding navigation and
enhancing usability for end users. This ultimately provides measurable
business benefits for large organisations.

As the only business intelligence platform built entirely for the
Internet, version 7.1 allows developers to connect to their databases
without any additional software by eliminating the need for ODBC
connections on client machines. MicroStrategy 7 also now includes a pure
thin-client HTML solution to eliminate plug-in issues.

Enhanced development features and integration capabilities in
MicroStrategy 7.1 make business intelligence more accessible to
developers. A new, Java-based software development kit (SDK) that is
certified on IBM WebSphere enables developers to build Web applications
on a variety of platforms including Unix and Microsoft Windows NT. In
addition, MicroStrategy OLAP Provider allows third-party query tools
like Microsoft Excel 2000 and Cognos PowerPlay to access MicroStrategy
7's analytical engine.

specifically for the Internet. Its pure-Web architecture provides the
Web reporting, security, performance, and standards critical for
deployment over the Internet. Because of proven data and user
scalability, only the MicroStrategy platform is capable of analysing
