Austrian Lotteries and Casinos Austria Choose MicroStrategy for Reporting and Analytics

MCLEAN, Va., June 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- MicroStrategy(R) Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR), a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence (BI) software, today announced that Austrian Lotteries and Casinos Austria plan to deploy MicroStrategy for reporting and analytics.

Austrian Lotteries will replace its current BI solution with MicroStrategy to provide greater consistency across its BI environment and deliver enhanced reporting capabilities for its 150 end users. Austrian Lotteries anticipates that the BI implementation will result in a centrally-controlled enterprise reporting environment that end users can easily utilize, thanks to MicroStrategy's intuitive, self-service reporting capabilities.

Following an assessment of its current BI environment, Austrian Lotteries conducted an extensive review of potential BI products in early 2008. Many users from the Austrian Lotteries operational departments took part in the evaluation, which included a Proof-of-Concept.

Casinos Austria also conducted an evaluation of multiple BI vendors within its enterprise group. The first step in deploying MicroStrategy at Casinos Austria will be to implement an efficient data warehouse, while integrating the reporting and analysis capabilities. Approximately 160 end users will use the BI solution.

The project leader at Austrian Lotteries and Casinos Austria, Mag. (FH) Matthias Steininger, is pleased with the decision to use MicroStrategy. "MicroStrategy will provide both Austrian Lotteries and Casinos Austria with a uniform, enterprise-wide view of data, while reducing administrative overhead and delivering end user satisfaction," he stated.

Wolfgang Mayer, MicroStrategy Austria Sales Director, explained, "Austrian Lotteries and Casinos Austria are two important new customers for MicroStrategy Austria. We are pleased to enhance our local customer base and expand into a broader range of industries. We will support Austrian Lotteries and Casinos Austria in their plans to rapidly and successfully implement their BI initiatives."
