2016 Business Intelligence Software TrustMap for Enterprises

The BI market has undergone significant change in the last couple of years. This updated analysis of an evolving market is based on real user reviews and will help buyers make informed product purchase decisions.

TrustRadius™, the most trusted review site for business technology, announced today the publication of its 2016 Buyer’s Guide to Business Intelligence software. Included in the guide are TrustRadius TrustMaps™ for Business Intelligence (BI) software which rank products based on end-user satisfaction ratings and research frequency by prospective buyers among small businesses, mid-size companies, and enterprises.

TrustMaps™ help software buyers quickly locate solutions most highly rated and adopted by their peers and therefore most closely aligned to their needs. Each TrustMap™ plots business intelligence software on two dimensions that include overall trScore™ based on satisfaction ratings from end-users, and research frequency by prospective buyers on TrustRadius as measured by unique page views.

Because success is not solely contingent on software selection, the guide includes a discussion of key factors for achieving success with software, drawn from interviews with highly regarded independent experts, including Claudia Imhoff, Wayne Eckerson, Rick Sherman and Barry Devlin.

The guide also includes a discussion of key 2016 market dynamics and trends in the BI software market, and detailed profiles of 22 business intelligence tools, including customer demographics and pros & cons as cited in 2,250 authenticated end-user reviews and ratings.

“The BI market has undergone significant change in the last couple of years with a major shift away from centrally-governed IT-led tools toward agile, self-service BI, and self-service data preparation. Along with that shift, the explosion of big data initiatives and the broad adoption of Hadoop have made the technology ecosystem much more complex," said Megan Headley, Research Director, TrustRadius. "This updated analysis of an evolving market is based on real user reviews and will help buyers make informed product purchase decisions based on the experiences of others like them."

Claudia Imhoff, President of Intelligent Solutions, Inc. agreed stating, “This guide is invaluable for helping buyers negotiate the significant shift in the industry from IT systems of record to more agile self-service tools. It includes cogent analyses of market trends, along with summaries of detailed reviews from real users of the leading products, and expert advice on on how to get the most from the technology. This is a must-have for anyone considering, or planning an investment in BI and analytic technologies”
