Every year, Gartner creates a report reviewing major market and industry trends for Business Intelligence and Analytics. This year Tableau was listed as a leader for the first time in their magic quadrant.
Entrance uses Tableau a lot to visualize business intelligence for our clients, so we were glad to get validation on what we already know is a great product. The report also included a few findings worth noting:
“If there were a single market theme in 2012 it would be that data discovery became a mainstream architecture.”
“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 business intelligence and analytics, and greatly enables organizations’ ability to perform diagnostic analytics.”
