This month, ECO is doing a video series titled Outgrowing Excel, helping former Excel users get up to speed with tasks they are accustomed to in Excel.
If you’ve been feeling limited by Excel, and have been hearing about some of the other great business intelligence tools that are out there that offer better performance, reusability, greater access to data, and better visualizations, but have not figured out how to mimic some of the things you are used to in Excel, this is the series for you.
As companies increasingly use MicroStrategy Mobile, they may need the ability to customize authentication on the app. The MicroStrategy Mobile SDK has several methods open for this, but very few samples to explain how to use them. We will show how you can intercept the user’s credentials and change them on the client side before passing them to the mobile server. Specifically, we will be passing the user-entered credentials to a third-party to retrieve a SAML token, which we then pass to a custom MicroStrategy task to validate. Once validated, this task returns the MicroStrategy credentials back to the application, which will take over with out-of-the-box functionality.
Once a custom MicroStrategy Mobile project has been set up in XCode, you will need to make a custom Application Delegate as described in the MicroStrategy Developer Zone. The below shows what the header and implementation files will look like for this.

As a platinum-level sponsor at MicroStrategy World, Pandera is recognized as an innovator in the business intelligence community for leading the way in proven new developments and trends that continue to re-shape the way businesses interact with data.
With that focus on innovation and our constant commitment to the evolution of business intelligence in mind, we’re excited to announce the topic of our featured keynote session at MicroStrategy World, presented by Ryan Redmann: Build the Brain For Your Business: Simple Steps Toward Systems That Think.
Delivering actionable information to improve decision making capabilities, should be an implicit and fundamental goal of any Business Intelligence initiative. In my role as Retail Practice Advisor, I have seen many companies fall well short of this goal, largely due to their underlying approach.
Companies need to consider, and approach, BI as an enabling technology and seek to integrate all available data and develop the relevant analytics, unfettered by their existing reporting portfolio. Utilizing an information centric approach to guide the design, measurements and solution architecture enables quantum advances in business insight and analytic capabilities.
This video is a quick introduction to using Visual Insight to build grids in your MicroStrategy v10 dashboards. Check it out, share it with your end users, and keep an eye out for what’s to come from Pandera Training in 2016! And if you want to see this kind of video with your own data, or if you have any questions and want to learn more, send us a message!
Creating a powerful dashboard isn’t just about pulling a simple grid of data from the database and letting it tell its own story. You have to choose the right visualization, format it appropriately, lay it out intuitively, and highlight the important aspects.
The addition of “Derived Attributes” constitutes a massive upgrade to the v10 Visual Insight tool, but I had a hard time wrapping my head around it conceptually. It wasn’t until I ran into a couple of specific situations where I really started to understand some new possibilities that weren’t available in the old Visual Insight. Hopefully, this post helps you see a situation or two where derived attributes might save you some headache.
Previously, we published a video showing how easy it is to add new custom D3 Visualizations to MicroStrategy 10 in less than a minute. After creating a D3 visualization, you may find that users want to format the widget. Instead of making code changes for each dashboard, you can add properties to the visualization that make it customizable. To do this, you will need an already completed D3 visualization. For my example, I will be using a Scatter Plot d3 visualization that was created for a client. Based on the data they had per dashboard, they wanted to format their axes, add a legend, and/or change the size of their data points.
