By Mike.Hallett@Oracle-BI&EPM on Feb 23, 2012
In February 2012, Gartner published the Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms (by John Hagerty, Rita Sallam and James Richardson of Gartner).
Oracle is in the highest position on "Ability to Execute" of all 21 vendors in the Magic Quadrant evaluated for this report. "Ability to Execute", according to Gartner, "is a function of a vendor's score of five measures that Gartner believes customers care about most in vendor selection. It does not equate to revenue or market share; it is highly influenced by customer responses to the BI Platforms Magic Quadrant survey."
Gartner's view is that "the market for BI platforms will remain one of the fastest growing software markets, despite sluggish economic growth in some regions. Organizations continue to turn to BI as a vital tool for smarter, more agile and efficient business. According to Gartner's annual survey of CIO technology priorities, BI and analytics has once again been named the top priority for 2012, a position it has held in three of the last five years.
And they say, “Oracle is deployed most broadly (in respect of global deployment) of any vendor in this Magic Quadrant, with average user populations nearing 3,000 and data volumes of more than 5 TB, and it is considered the BI standard for nearly 70% of firms surveyed.”
Use this Magic Quadrant to demonstrate Oracle's leadership in the Business Intelligence space. As always, please read this report in its entirety before presenting to a customer or prospect to ensure that this works for your particular situation.
