TYSONS CORNER, Virginia, Nov. 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --MicroStrategy®
Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of business
intelligence (BI) software, today announced that it has been rated the top
Mobile Business Intelligence (BI) offering out of 25 product offerings in the
widely followed 2012 Wisdom of Crowds® Mobile Business Intelligence Market
Study® from Dresner Advisory Services. This is the second year in a row
MicroStrategy Mobile received this number one ranking.

Understand the Market to Fully Prepare for 2013

The MicroStrategy Mobile BI platform goes above and beyond standard business
intelligence to become a full mobile app development platform. The
MicroStrategy Mobile App Platform enables organizations to build a wide
variety of essential mobile apps that deliver workflows, transactions, mobile
operations systems access, multimedia, and business intelligence in compelling
custom native apps.

The Dresner study rated MicroStrategy the top Mobile BI offering, with the
highest platform score and the highest customer user rating for Mobile BI
among all 25 vendors rated. Survey findings include:

  *Mobile business intelligence is the third-highest priority for mobile
    applications, and those that believe mobile BI is critical or very
    important have increased to 61% today, from 52% in 2010.
  *Organizations have aggressive implementation plans through 2015, with more
    than half expecting deployment above 41% penetration within 36 months'
    time.
  *For the most popular mobile platforms, users still have a strong
    preference for native apps. This has been driven by the fact that native
    apps have more intuitive interfaces, faster performance and offline
    capabilities – all important to mobile business users.

"We're in the midst of a profound shift toward Mobile BI and mobile
computing," said Howard Dresner, Chief Research Officer, Dresner Advisory
Services, and author of the 2012 Wisdom of Crowds® Mobile Business
Intelligence Market Study. "Mobile BI has become mainstreamed. In fact, for
some, it's the only way they consume Business Intelligence content! In 2012,
its impact is now both clear and profound. The study rated MicroStrategy the
top Mobile BI offering, with the highest overall score and the highest
customer user rating for Mobile BI among all 25 vendors rated."

"There's a powerful opportunity to take what's unique and compelling about
Mobile Apps – embedded with workflows, multimedia, transactions, and business
intelligence – and bring it to life in an easy, fast, and flexible platform,"
said Paul Zolfaghari, President, MicroStrategy Incorporated. "The Dresner
survey results show that independent analysts and our customers agree that our
Mobile Apps are unmatched in terms of customer experience and overall
capabilities. We see ourselves as the global leader in mobile BI software."

MicroStrategy will be hosting a complimentary webcast on December 12th, during
which Howard Dresner will share the results of this in-depth market study. To
