Toronto, ON (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
Today, Dundas Data Visualization (http://www.dundas.com) announces that it was ranked second of 25 in the Vendor Scores and Rankings survey in the Dresner Advisory Services 2013 Wisdom of Crowds® Computing/Mobile Study, with a total score of 21.7 out of a possible 36.5 points. Dundas was also ranked second on platform scores.
The Wisdom of Crowds Mobile BI Market Study was based on a survey that asked BI users to rank vendors’ mobile platform support and integration, customer ratings, and business intelligence features to form a total score. Platform and features were weighted based on user prioritizations.
The Dundas Mobile platform supports the top Business Intelligence features required for mobile, which the study found were “viewing charts or reports” and “data selection” respectively, which both ranked as critical or very important by over 95% of respondents. Dundas Mobile also supports “Drill down navigation”, “KPI monitoring”, and “Alerts”, which were considered critical or very important by 85% or more of respondents. Dundas Mobile is also supported on all major mobile and tablet devices.
“We congratulate Dundas on their high ranking in this year’s Mobile BI Market Study,” said Howard Dresner, Founder & Chief Research Officer of Dresner Advisory Services, LLC. “Dundas’ mobile solution was graded on its platform, business intelligence features, and customer ratings, and was ranked second in our study.”
The study found that the primary target for mobile BI is executives and middle managers, and that executives and sales and marketing functions are the most culturally prepared for mobile BI. The study highlights that these job roles have historically required mobile technology and time spent outside of the office, which Wisdom of Crowds indicates is the reason for their cultural preparedness.
Troy Marchand, President and CEO of Dundas Data Visualization said that “it won’t be long before mobile BI is not separated in these types of studies. For a BI solution to be successful in 2014 there must be comprehensive mobile offering, not just an adequate representation that can be used on an iPad. Seeing a lot of great vendors being innovative in the mobile business intelligence space is a great sign that we as an industry have a firm grasp on what our clients are asking for.”
