“Yellowfin has dominated the Innovation category of BARC’s The BI Survey for the past five years, emerging as the top ranked BI solution for its vendor Peer Groups again in 2016,” said Yellowfin Co-Founder and CEO, Glen Rabie. “Combined with Yellowfin’s renowned ease-of-use, our approach to empowering business users with unique collaborative capabilities supports high levels of user adoption. The BI Survey 16 found the average proportion of employees using Yellowfin within an organization was 33 percent, compared to an average of 17 percent for all products assessed.”

Identified as a BI platform that has “consistently top-ranked in Innovation,” Yellowfin has ranked first in The BI Survey for the complex ‘Innovation’ KPI – within the Self-service reporting-focused products Peer Group and Americas-focused vendors Peer Groups – every year since 2012. Yellowfin also ranked first for the Innovation KPI within the ‘Dashboarding-focused products’ Peer Group from 2012 to 2015, placing second in 2016.

“Yellowfin receives excellent customer feedback for its innovation above all else, earning high ratings in trending areas such as cloud BI, collaboration, Data Discovery and data visualization, Mobile BI and Location Intelligence,” said Founder and CEO of BARC, Dr Carsten Bange. “Yellowfin is definitely seen as an innovative BI vendor by its customers. It has achieved excellent results in this category over the last six years and is top-ranked for innovation in the Self-service reporting-focused products and Americas-focused vendors peer groups again in 2016.”

The ‘Innovation’ KPI comprises ratings for seven pioneering product capabilities in order to measure a product’s level of innovation, including cloud BI, Collaborative BI, Data Discovery and data visualization, Mobile BI, operational BI, Location Intelligence and visual design standards.

BARC noted that Yellowfin had also recorded “consistently outstanding” results for its product capabilities in Collaborative BI, which contributed strongly to its dominant Innovation KPI scores and user adoption statistics.

“Collaboration is Yellowfin’s truly unique selling point,” said Dr Bange. “Many other BI vendors provide collaboration and workflow capabilities, but Yellowfin beats them on several counts. Its capabilities are broader than most of its competitors and the ease-of-use and intuitiveness with which business users can set-up workflows and collaborate on content is very impressive.

“This level of ease-of-use helps to increase user adoption, with results from The BI Survey finding that the percentage of employees using Yellowfin within an organization is twice the average of other products.”

Yellowfin ranked first for four KPIs – and was identified as a leader (ranked within the top 25 percent of products assessed) for an additional four KPIs – within the Self-service reporting-focused products Peer Group. Yellowfin was also a top ranked BI solution in four KPIs – and was pinpointed as a leading BI product in a further three KPIs – within the Americas-focused vendors Peer Group.
