Alliance Agreement for Business Intelligence Announced by Deloitte
Deloitte recently announced it has signed an alliance agreement with MicroStrategy Incorporated to develop and deliver solutions to help clients improve their information, business intelligence and analytic capabilities.
Deloitte will combine MicroStrategy’s advanced business intelligence technology with its broad array of consulting, advisory and implementation services to assist their mutual clients in meeting information, business intelligence and analytic needs under the new agreement.
The alliance will include collaboration on solution, service and market development, education, training, sales and delivery.
The use of information and analytics can be a critical driver of revenue and competitive differentiation and can assist management in making more effective business decisions while managing information for a strategic business advantage.
Lee Dittmar, principal for Deloitte Consulting LLP, says the increasing emphasis on analytics has significant implications for IT and business leaders and the new alliance combines Deloitte’s information management services with MicroStrategy’s software to give clients a significant advantage in accelerating their analytical programs.
As expectations continue to rise, many leaders are shifting their thinking from a tactical approach for management reporting to a more strategic approach involving analytics. Deloitte is positioned well in the information management space with a demonstrated depth and breadth of competencies to help clients deliver on their analytics vision.
MicroStrategy’s chief operating officer, Sanju Bansal, says both Deloitte and MicroStrategy recognize that business priorities are increasingly driven by the need for better and earlier insights on markets, customers, suppliers, employees, regulation and risks, and that there is a need for solutions to integrate business, industry and functional capabilities with advanced information management and analytical technologies.
MicroStrategy was founded in 1989 and is a provider of business intelligence technology. The company provides integrated reporting, analysis, and monitoring software helping organizations worldwide make better business decisions each day.
