Global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software developer, Yellowfin, has been classed as a top “Dashboard Vendor” in the Business Application Research Center’s (BARC) The BI Survey 13 – the world’s largest survey of BI end-users.
Yellowfin was ranked first for 10 KPIs within the Dashboard Vendor Peer Group, which contained 11 products. Other products in this group comprised: Arcplan, BOARD, Dimensional Insight, Evidanza, Information Builders, Logi Analytics, MicroStrategy, Oracle BI Foundation Suite, QlikTech and Tableau.
BARC found that survey respondents from multi-product sites “seldom” chose products categorized in the Dashboard Vendor Peer Group as the “company standard”. Conversely, Yellowfin ranked first – both in its Dashboard Vendor Peer Group and compared to all 30 market-leading BI products examined in The BI Survey 13 – for product standardization.
“This result demonstrates the confidence that our clients have in the quality of our solution,” said General Manager for EMEA at Yellowfin, Daniel Shaw-Dennis. “It also illustrates that our customers are assured in the knowledge that Yellowfin delivers much more than intuitive and insightful dashboards. They know that Yellowfin has the breadth of features and functionality to meet their full range of reporting and analytics requirements – from the Data Discovery needs of end-users to the robust administrative capabilities demanded by enterprise IT.”
