BARC Presents BARC Score Enterprise BI & Analytics Platforms for the 8th Time

The analyst firm BARC presents BARC Score Enterprise BI & Analytics Platforms. This BARC Score evaluates and compares 21 of the world’s most important vendors of modern enterprise business intelligence & analytics platforms. The chart, along with the software assessments, will be available from June 27th, 2022.

  • For the eighth time, BARC Score Enterprise BI & Analytics Platforms evaluates and presents clear conclusions on today’s most important vendors of modern BI & analytics platforms.
  • Users do not make compromises: An enterprise BI & analytics platform must offer a wide range of functions and support the implementation of a large variety of requirements and use cases from enterprise reporting to mobile dashboards to visual or ML-supported analysis for self-service users. BARC Score Enterprise BI & Analytics Platforms considers a broad set of criteria to identify the market leaders.
  • Verticalization and industry content are gaining in relevance: While most vendors have sought to make their BI & analytics platforms attractive to as many industries as possible in recent years, they are increasingly looking for niches in industries or partnerships with ERP vendors to escape price and competitive pressure.

The BI & analytics software market is highly competitive – therefore, many vendors have shifted their focus to stay competitive

“This year, a number of strategic decisions made by BI & analytics vendors are clearly reflected in their positioning. Many vendors have revised their strategies to define exactly which customers and deployment scenarios they will focus on, and which they should no longer actively pursue. Vendors can therefore be divided into ‘generic’ platforms and specialists with unique strengths in their focus area,” said Larissa Baier, BARC Analyst and Head of BARC Score.

“For buyers of BI & analytics platforms, it is important to carefully examine the impact of mergers and acquisitions on the further development of solutions. As always, in addition to vendor-related considerations, individual requirements for the planned deployment scenarios that a modern BI & analytics platform is intended to serve should be considered.”
