The best BI & Analytics Platforms in 2015

Trying to decide which Business Intelligence & Analytics platform to use? Take a look at the best candidates in 2015..

The advent of “Big Data” has created a thriving market for Business Intelligence & Analytics platforms. This has resulted in an “ocean” of available solutions & platforms, making the task of deciding which one is the right for you a herculean one 😉

I’ve been a vocal advocate for the true benefits (“The Big Data Playbook”) as well as the hype (“OK Big Data is important. How do i get started?”) surrounding Big Data & BI in this blog. My experience clearly indicates that BI should become part of your tool-set, but as always you need to do your homework & plan your journey before embarking on it!

Gartner has been greatly assisting this task, through the release of it’s annual “Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms” report. The updated 2015 version paints the following picture:

The full report contains invaluable insights, including a profile of key characteristics per platform.

I’m currently using Tableau & Microstrategy as personal tools & have gone through enterprise deployments of Microstrategy & Targit. I’m always available should you need to discuss your BI & Analytics project & get a second point of view…

Are you currently using any of the platforms in the quadrant? If so what is your experience?
