More from the Magic Quadrant
Gartner’s analysis of the Business Intelligence and Analytics market is the most anticipated and highly respected in the industry. Tableau and other industry observers believe that many organizations will only consider software vendors that appear on the Gartner Magic Quadrant. That's because Gartner information is based on detailed customer surveys, interviews and Gartner's own research. In addition to the detailed analysis of vendors, Gartner also reviews major market and industry trends.
Tableau’s products address these trends head-on. Tableau is easy to use and fast to deploy business intelligence software that virtually anyone can use. Tableau plugs
into existing IT environments yet gives business users complete flexibility to discover patterns and trends in their data. People easily create and share reports, dashboards and visualizations all within the dictates and protocols of IT. Content is automatically optimized for mobile users. And virtually every data source is supported – including technologies like Hadoop. It’s the easiest way to deploy analytics across your entire organization.
“ “If there were a single market theme in 2012 it would
be that data discovery became a mainstream architecture.”†
Data Discovery goes mainstream
Key report findings in the 2013 Gartner Magic Quadrant include:
“Gartner sees more organizations building diagnostic analytics that leverage critical capabilities such as interactive visualization to enable users to drill more easily into the data to discover new insights.”
“This emphasis on data discovery from most of the leaders in the market — which are now promoting tools with business-user-friendly data integration, coupled with embedded storage and computing layers (typically in-memory/columnar) and unfettered drilling — accelerates the trend toward decentralization and user empowerment of BI and analytics, and greatly enables organizations' ability to perform diagnostic analytics.”†
“ “The market for BI and Analytics platforms will remain one of the fastest growing software markets.”†
