July 14, 2011 - Business intelligence vendor MicroStrategy has announced general availability of its Microstrategy Cloud platform.

The company said MicroStrategy Cloud provides customers with large-scale business intelligence capabilities based on a platform-as-a-service offering. It said the cloud-based offering combines the latest in-memory, 64-bit business intelligence technology with a secure, continuously monitored infrastructure.

“MicroStrategy Cloud will transform the way our customers build and deploy solutions and strategic information applications,” chief executive Michael Saylor said in a statement. “MicroStrategy is building and deploying this infrastructure so that each customer can avoid investing millions of dollars on their own hardware and human resources.”

In conjunction with the launch, MicroStrategy said it has formed partnerships with several key vendors who support and provide additional services to back its cloud strategy. IBM will provide its family of Netezza analytical appliances, Informatica will provide a data integration foundation and ParAccel will integrate its analytic platform with the cloud platform.

MicroStrategy said it is able to deliver a cloud business intelligence environment within 48 hours and will offer its services via a network of worldwide data centers.
