MicroStrategy Announces Integration with Adobe Flash Platform to Create Rich Internet Applications with Embedded Business Intelligence

MCLEAN, Va., Nov. 17 -- MicroStrategy(R) Incorporated (NASDAQ:MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence (BI) software, today announced that its latest release of MicroStrategy 8(TM) software offers integrated support for key components of the Adobe Flash Platform.

MicroStrategy's enhanced level of integration with Adobe Flex Builder 3, a key component of the Flash Platform, extends a new range of BI delivery and consumption opportunities to the latest composite and mash-up applications. Now Flex developers do not need to become BI practitioners to take advantage of BI within their rich Internet applications (RIAs). New MicroStrategy extensions to the open source Flex framework, including visualizations and selector controls, have been delivered as custom Flex components, making it fast and easy for Flex developers to add powerful BI capabilities to their applications.

By combining MicroStrategy's advanced analytical capabilities and scalability for thousands of users and terabytes of data with the functionality and features in Adobe Flex Builder 3, developers will have an extensive arsenal for creating powerful RIAs with robust business intelligence. With these types of RIAs, users can combine historical, predictive, and operational information for a more comprehensive perspective of their business areas. These easy-to-use, highly interactive interfaces can be deployed inside the browser using the ubiquitous Adobe(R) Flash(R) Player or outside the browser using Adobe AIR.

"There's been a significant increase in demand for business-critical RIAs that can be deployed regardless of the operating system, online or offline," said Dave Gruber, group product marketing manager, Platform business unit at Adobe. "By leveraging Adobe Flex Builder 3 and Adobe AIR with the MicroStrategy platform, developers can create more effective user experiences for data-intensive applications. This is a natural fit for enterprise application developers who want to include the full power of business intelligence into their RIAs."

"MicroStrategy is pleased to work with Adobe to provide this deep integration between business intelligence and rich Internet application technology," said Sanju Bansal, MicroStrategy's COO. "There is a growing community of very creative and active Flex developers who are pioneering the latest breed of Web applications. MicroStrategy is pleased to be directly addressing those developers with BI technology that has been designed specifically for them."
