Today as part of Friday Fun, thought of sharing this ON DEMAND video shared by MicroStrategy detailing out the administration capabilities provided using Workstation

Workstation – What is it ?

Workstation is next-gen tool developed by MicroStrategy to replace all we do in prior versions (9.x or 10.x or 11.x ) into one Unified platform called as Workstation. (i.e.) replace developer, object manager, command manager, integrity manager, user manager, system managers, security, etc ., & have everything in one umbrella. It is an GREAT Idea/Vision/Mission & they are in phased approach to provide the features into the product. I would say, it has improved a lot than it was 2-3 years back.

Definition by MicroStrategy is listed below

  1. It is an powerful tool that lets you administer and control both projects and environments, providing tools for data discovery and visualization.
  2. Workstation makes it easy to build compelling visualizations and interactive dossiers in a matter of minutes and then easily share those dossiers with others.

Example : How to create an Bar Chart easily ?

Futuristic Expectation – my expectation down the line this tool is going to become are shared

When down the line in next 5 – 8 years from now (i.e.) 2025 – 2028 ~ I expect 50 to 60% of customers might/would have moved to CLOUD (AWS, Google, Azure or etc.,) –
