2012 Gartner BI Magic Quadrant Report

The 2012 Gartner BI Magic Quadrant report was released in February (see copy HERE) and in comparison to last year’s report there are no dramatic shake-ups, particularly in the ‘Leaders’ quadrant. The most notable change is probably in the bottom-left quadrant representing ‘Niche Players’ where new vendors e.g. Alterix or Prognoz have been included and others e.g. Corda Technologies or Bitam have disappeared. As for the Leaders of the BI quadrant the key change in the market positioning applies to Microsoft which dropped a few notches behind Oracle and MicroStrategy on the ‘Ability to Execute’ scale as well as QlikTech which raised above SAS, also in the ‘Ability to Execute’ scale. Surprisingly, just like last year, the ‘Visionaries’ quadrant remained empty and the ‘Challengers’ have remained exactly the same i.e. the quadrant includes only two vendors (Tableau and Spotfire).
