Ventana Research performed this research and analysis independently. Our goals were to determine the Value Index for Analytics and Business Intelligence and to evaluate vendors and products in accordance with the Ventana Research analytics and business intelligence blueprint. We charged no fees for this research and invited to participate all vendors that are delivering relevant applications to enable analytics and business intelligence. This report includes products generally available as of August 2018.
Our purpose in conducting this research was to evaluate the maturity of software vendors and products and their value for enterprise use in analytics and business intelligence. Nothing in this report of our research is intended to imply that one vendor or product is the right choice for any particular organization. Rather, it provides a baseline of knowledge that organizations can use to evaluate vendors and products to manage and improve analytics and business intelligence. Unlike IT analyst firm reports that use subjective factors to score vendors, our research is based on thorough research-based analysis of customer assurance and product categories that best represent how an organization should evaluate its technology supplier.
The full Value Index report with detailed analysis is available for purchase. We can provide detailed insights on this Value Index and advice on its relevance to an organization through the Ventana On-Demand research and advisory service. Assessment services based on this research also are available.
