Gartner recently published their 2016 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms and Microsoft came out as a leader for the 9th year in a row. Here’s what they’re saying:
“Organizations seeking to stay ahead of the competition recognize the importance of investing in analytics and visualization tools to deliver insights from their data. They need a modern, powerful business intelligence (BI) platform that will stand up as an industry leader and a vision that will meet the needs of tomorrow.
Industry analysts have taken note of our efforts and we are excited to share Gartner has positioned Microsoft as a Leader, for the ninth consecutive year, in the Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms.* For the first time, Microsoft is placed furthest in vision within the Leaders quadrant.”
We know that the best way to get a 360° perspective on your business is to incorporate an analytics-enhanced visualization layer to complement your traditional reporting processes. Power BI is part of that equation because the technologies behind the solution enable users to create and share insights in real time.
