The ninth edition of BARC Score Enterprise BI & Analytics Platforms evaluates the most important international manufacturers of modern enterprise business intelligence and analytics platforms on the basis of an extensive criteria catalog and customer evaluations.
In order to qualify for inclusion in BARC Score, vendors must first fulfill a set of criteria based on geographical presence and technical capabilities.
To be evaluated in this BARC Score, a vendor must have a strong focus on providing BI & analytics functionality and supply four out of five technologies from the following functional portfolio: formatted reports, dashboards, analysis & ad hoc query, advanced & predictive analytics and self-service BI & analytics. In addition, the vendor must generate a minimum of 15 million Euros in license revenue per year with the above product set, spread across at least two separate geographical regions.
We consider the following as individual geographical regions: Europe, Middle East and Africa, North America, Latin America and Asia/Pacific. Open source vendors are evaluated on the basis of their total revenues, as they do not usually charge a licence fee.
Software providers are evaluated on two dimensions, ‘Portfolio Capabilities’ and ‘Market Execution’, each representing an axis on the chart.
In addition to BARC’s analyst opinion, user experience also plays an important role.
For our Scores in the areas of BI, analytics and business planning, we draw on the world’s largest surveys for BI & analytics and planning software, the BI & Analytics Survey and the Planning Survey, which ask companies each year about their satisfaction with software vendors and solutions.
Detailed analyst knowledge and comprehensive survey results are summarized in the BARC Score report and chart. The chart provides a clear view of each vendor’s market position and portfolio.
