Tableau leads in Gartner’s ‘Magic Quadrant for BI and Analytics’

Results are in and for the fifth consecutive year, Tableau is a top leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant BI and Analytics Platform Report. As the 2016 North and South America Reseller of the Year, icimo is honored to be working with this powerhouse in the BI and analytics industry.

The report’s findings emphasize Tableau’s¬†strengths¬†in:

Execution – Tableau is viewed as the “modern BI market leader” – ahead of Microsoft. As Tableau continues to develop¬†along side¬†established enterprise solutions, it will be important for Tableau to¬†balance focus on both enterprise features and innovation.

Intuitive Interactive Exploration – Tableau’s ease of use continues to¬†be the driving feature attracting buyers and placing Tableau as the highest ranking of all competitors in this category¬†in the Quadrant.

Customer Experience and Success – Tableau’s overall customer experience and operations rating grew from last year’s Quadrant. Tableau’s ease of learning is significant with references available for classes, online tutorials, webinars etc. offering many learning avenues¬†for both users and partners.

Deployment and Standardization Rates – Tableau has expanded its deployments and has become a BI and analytics standard with¬†customers. Tableau’s deployment sizes in the report are rated above average ¬†(above 1000 users) compared to competitors in the Quadrant.
