MicroStrategy Incorporated, a leading worldwide provider of enterprise software platforms, announced today that the SAP Integration and Certification Centre (SAP ICC) has certified that the MicroStrategy 9 BI platform integrates with the SAP HANA platform.
MicroStrategy customers such as Adobe and Adidas can now harness the blazing speed of SAP HANA with MicroStrategy’s advanced visualisation capabilities to build breakthrough analytical applications.

With this integration, business users can quickly and easily transform data in SAP HANA into visually insightful dashboards, reports, and data discovery applications. Companies can unlock the business value of big data assets using MicroStrategy BI platform’s advanced data visualisation capabilities, custom reporting, and interactive dashboards.

“SAP HANA is used as the centralised source of truth at Adobe,” says Jeremy Hadley, Senior Manager BI, at Adobe Systems. “MicroStrategy was really the driver for pushing that information out to the business. The MicroStrategy BI platform and SAP HANA were the catalysts for the speed and versatility goals that we have at Adobe, and the integration was amazing.”

“We are delighted that our MicroStrategy BI platform has achieved certified integration with the SAP HANA platform,” says Paul Zolfaghari, president, MicroStrategy Incorporated.

“This integration builds on MicroStrategy’s relationship with SAP, underscoring the importance of working together to optimise our platforms and extending advanced capabilities and speed to our global customers.”

Through integration with SAP HANA, the MicroStrategy BI platform allows organisations to:
* Easily transform data in SAP HANA into visually appealing dashboards, insightful reports, and data discovery applications;
* Quickly build native mobile apps fuelled by data in SAP HANA;
* Leverage push-down analytics to gain maximum performance with SAP HANA; and
* Transparently capitalise on existing investments in security infrastructure from SAP.

In addition, MicroStrategy has joined the SAP PartnerEdge program as an SAP software solution and technology partner. Through the program, partners work closely with SAP to develop and certify the technical integration of their solutions with SAP software.
