Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms
Augmented analytics continues to be the key driver for buyers in this software space. The cloud is also a major consideration for organizations evaluating their options for BI and analytics. Gartner notes that most new spending is on BI software in cloud deployments. The market remains extremely mature, with larger vendors offering more broad analytic portfolios and well-funded startups filling in the gaps or niche use cases.
In this Magic Quadrant, Gartner evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of 22 providers that it considers most significant in the marketplace, and provides readers with a graph (the Magic Quadrant) plotting the vendors based on their ability to execute and completeness of vision. The graph is divided into four quadrants: niche players, challengers, visionaries, and leaders.
