Q2 Results Make MicroStrategy Giddy -- Giving Away Their BI Software!

After announcing 2010 Q2 results of a 41% year-over-year increase in license revenue, MicroStrategy is giddy.  So much, in fact, that they are giving away BI software!

Russell Lantier, a Business Development Manager for MicroStrategy, let me know about these two great offers:

MicroStrategy Free Reporting Suite:

MicroStrategy Free Mobile BI Suite:

For the Free Reporting Suite, MicroStrategy is giving you a one-CPU server license, 100 named user licenses, two developer licenses, and two licenses for the "full end-user experience."

MicroStrategy claims that their BI offering for iPhone/iPad and BlackBerry is 100x more impactful than using BI on your desktop.  Check out their offer and decide for yourself.

Also, for several years I led the US technical services teams within Cincom Systems' ERP software product group and the Midwest custom software services arm of Xerox.
