…Personalised Business Intelligence Delivered Anytime, Anywhere via Email, Web, Wireless and

MicroStrategy Incorporated, a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence software,
today announced the launch of MicroStrategy Narrowcast Server 7.1. A key component of the
MicroStrategy 7 Business Intelligence Platform, Narrowcast Server automatically delivers
personalised information to companies' employees, partners, customers and suppliers via
email, Web, PDAs, pagers and phones.

Narrowcast Server offers an intuitive subscription portal, high-performance delivery and
robust security, leveraging all of the analytical capabilities of the MicroStrategy platform
to intelligently distribute relevant business insight to any user.

MicroStrategy Narrowcast Server's open architecture allows it to be easily integrated with
existing infrastructures. Moreover, it overcomes the distribution limitations of other
business intelligence solutions. End users can access the out-of-the-box subscription portal
specifying what information they are interested in receiving, how they would like to receive
it and when the information would be most pertinent. Users can choose to receive the
information according to a schedule or a particular event such as a large customer deposit,
inventory shortage or database load.

Commenting on MicroStrategy's announcement, Bob Skeens, UK Country Manager, MicroStrategy,
said, "In such a highly aggressive market culture, it is vital that companies stay one step
ahead of their competitors. Narrowcast Server will help our customers significantly raise
their revenues and enhances their customer service through real-time, up-to-date reporting."

java-based architecture
