The new release – Yellowfin 5.2: Making Business Intelligence even easier – will include new chart types, improved user interface and enhanced scalability.
“Yellowfin 5.2 is all about making Business Intelligence even easier,” said Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie. “Easier to use, easier to manage, scale and adapt to changing business needs. Most importantly, Yellowfin is making it even easier for more people to reap the benefits of self-service data analysis. Yellowfin’s new range of highly intuitive data visualizations allows everyone to generate better business insight.”
Rabie said that Yellowfin 5.2 will enable organizations to realize unparalleled Return on Investment, with its unrivalled ease-of-use leading to widespread user adoption and lower total cost of ownership, due to reduced day-to-day business user demands.
“User adoption is the key to a successful BI implementation,” said Rabie. “The key to sustained user adoption is ease-of-use, without compromise. Yellowfin 5.2 cements our position as the world’s easiest-to-use BI solution, and moves beyond traditional reporting, to deliver insight by making data analysis easy.”
Rabie’s comments are backed by the latest Dresner Advisory Services Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Study.
The global study ranked vendors on a five-point scale, across 32 criteria, based on: Sales experience, value, quality and usefulness of product, quality of technical support, quality and value of consulting services, and whether existing clients would recommend the vendor and its product to others.
The findings, released mid-May this year and compiled via feedback from eligible respondents (users with first-hand experience with the BI vendors and their product/services), compared 16 of the world’s leading BI vendors and awarded Yellowfin an overall score of 4.23 out of five. Yellowfin outscored big name players including Qliktech, SAS Institute, Microstrategy, Oracle, IBM Cognos, Microsoft and SAP Business Objects along with Open Source offerings Actuate (BIRT), Pentaho and Jaspersoft.
“This fantastic user-driven result validates our hard work, and further strengths our mandate to keep making Business Intelligence easy,” said Rabie. “Yellowfin was one of only three vendors that was recommended by 100 percent of survey participants – we couldn’t have received a stronger endorsement for our people, product and services.”
The result reaffirms Yellowfin’s reputation as an emerging global BI leader, and positions it as Australia’s foremost BI solution.
Yellowfin 5.2 will be launched on Tuesday 7 June in an exclusive series of webinars and made available for general use from Friday 10 June. Click here to register for a webinar of your choice.
