Gartner Magic Quadrant
Gartner research and analysis, summarized in the Magic Quadrant, positions the leading vendors in Business Intelligence and Analytics. The publishing of the magic quadrant involves extensive research, input from vendor customer interviews and surveys and evaluation based on numerous capabilities.
For this Magic Quadrant, Gartner defines BI and analytics as a software platform that delivers 17 capabilities across three categories: information delivery, analysis and integration. The report provides invaluable information for customers looking to implement and scale their analytic deployments.
"By 2015, enterprise buyers of BI platforms will predominantly purchase platforms that support both strong and broad business-user-accessible data discovery capabilities and IT-driven enterprise features for data reuse, governance, security and scalability. " - Gartner
The Biggest Jump to Date for Pentaho
Pentaho Improves Completeness of Vision in the Magic Quadrant
Pentaho was born out of the desire to achieve positive, disruptive change in the business analytics market, dominated by bureaucratic mega vendors offering eye-wateringly expensive heavy-weight products built on outdated technology platforms. Even today, these proprietary vendors are focused on integration with the rest of their enterprise applications– at the expense of advancing their BI capabilities.
Pentaho addresses both the business and technical challenges inherent in gaining actionable insights from incoming data. Pentaho’s analytics platform supports the entire big data workflow from data ingestion, preparation and integration, to interactive visualization, analysis and predictive analytics. Customers achieve more comprehensive insights by accurately blending big data with other data at the source in real-time.
