By applying MicroStrategy analytics to native SFA data, customers can gain visibility and clarity into their sales operations, providing them with the ability to spot trends, identify new opportunities and project future sales.

- Enterprise-grade security further enhanced. Whether deploying financial data to company-owned devices or sales information to personal devices in a BYOD deployment, security of the information is critical.
