The EMA Radar provides a market evaluation based solely on mid-market needs, enabling organizations to leverage a market report aimed at their business and technical needs instead of the broader BI marketplace.

Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading IT and data management research and consulting firm, today announced the release of its newest EMA Radar report titled “EMA Radar™ for Business Intelligence Platforms for Midsized Organizations,” based on key criteria defined by Lyndsay Wise, research director at EMA, and John Myers, managing research director at EMA. This report focuses on how business intelligence platforms meet the unique needs of the midsized market place and which influences have the most impact on the operation of those smaller businesses.

“Midsize organizations struggle with similar challenges as their enterprise counterparts but have unique needs based on their resources, agility, and overall goals,” commented Wise. “The EMA Radar provides a market evaluation based solely on mid-market needs, enabling organizations to leverage a market report aimed at their business and technical needs instead of the broader BI marketplace.”

Midmarket organizations - defined as companies with under 500 headcount or independently operating departments within larger enterprises - face many of the same challenges as their enterprise counterparts but struggle with resources in relation to finance, infrastructure, and expertise. These challenges are being addressed by creating solutions that provide quick time to value, intuitive interfaces, and low deployment and maintenance costs. Like larger organizations, midsized organizations are also looking to move beyond transactional data uses to expand their knowledge of their business, their customers, and their markets. Doing so requires the ability to leverage self-service, data discovery, and broader data management capabilities.

The vendors selected for this Radar help midmarket organizations achieve these goals. This year’s report delivers a detailed, comparative study of BI platforms from the following nine vendors:

  • Chartio
  • GoodData
  • Information Builders
  • Jinfonet
  • LogiAnalytics
  • Qlik
  • SAP
  • Tableau
  • Yellowfin

The results of this cross-functional study identify key strengths and weaknesses and highlight the characteristics of each vendor’s solution. Results are summarized in a detailed market map and Radar Chart – which includes a composite score for each vendor – making it simple to see which key functionality each vendor supports and how they compare.
