Despite widespread investment in analytics, a majority of business users lack easy access to corporate data and contextual insights to make better, timely decisions throughout the course of their day. These users are left to navigate their complex technology ecosystem and sift through applications or silos of data stored across a number of BI tools, preventing a data-driven culture from becoming pervasive across the enterprise.
The future of work is supposed to be a place where tools like AI, ML and analytics are seamlessly integrated into the work process, boosting productivity and success.
The good news is Microstrategy has been paying attention. Microstrategy 2019 Update 2 adds HyperIntelligence which injects analytics into popular applications like Google’s G Suite, Microsoft Office 365, Salesforce, Workday, and Atlassian and popular mobile productivity apps.
It delivers relevant, contextual insights tailored to each individual. People on-the-go can easily receive contextual insights on their favorite apps and devices with HyperIntelligence for Office and HyperIntelligence for Mobile.

Bite-sized views of information are consolidated into cards that appear to users in their Outlook application. The cards are accessible via a brand-new add-in for the Outlook web and desktop clients for both Windows PC and Mac.
