As our CTO Neil Burnett puts it, “With Arria narrating your dashboards, you get the data insights spelled out for you in plain English by software that has no personal agenda. So the interpretation of critical information is objective, and everyone has the same take-aways. All your dossier viewers are equally empowered to identify, communicate, and action key insights.”

In addition to the original Descriptive Statistics, Time-based Variance, and Target-based Variance analyses, you can now analyze and narrate your data using the Trend Analysis and Ranking Analysis apps. Arria for MicroStrategy 3.0 also provides apps for describing pie, line, and bar charts. These chart apps actually go much further than simply narrating the respective charts — they’re extremely useful for things like drilling down deep into your dataset and generating comprehensive analysis. By using the various Arria Apps, you can surface critical information without time-consuming digging and complex exploration.

For example, by using the pre-built Trend analysis, you can generate narratives that drill down through multiple dimensions and highlight noteworthy shifts, such as an analysis of monthly sales broken down by country, product, and market that reveals in words a previously unseen trend of growth in sales in a particular region. With just a few clicks, you can automatically turn your data into plain-language narratives that everyone can read and interpret consistently.

You can move between the dashboard, the Arria Apps narratives, and the Arria Answers chat platform whenever a question comes to mind — without interrupting your workflow.
