To stay competitive in today’s market, businesses across industries are faced with increased pressure to obtain comprehensive data insights quickly and simply. Historically, this has been no small feat, requiring extensive IT resources and taking far too long. Sisense innovation, though, has enabled small and large companies alike to adopt an end-to-end BI platform that removes IT complexity, simplifying analytics for large, disparate data sets. And industry analysts are taking note of the evolving BI landscape.
Last week, leading industry analyst firm, Gartner, recognized the shift toward self-service analytics, and we are thrilled to announce Sisense’s placement in the February 2016 “Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms.” For the first time, Gartner has recognized that there is a real business need for self-service tools like Sisense, that are not dependent on IT and is recognizing the companies that are putting powerful analytics in the hands of everyday business users – without the need for IT’s involvement. In this year’s Magic Quadrant, Sisense ranked in the top quartile in business benefit, ease of use, customer experience, ongoing operations, and overall support.”
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant reinforces this market shift toward self-service analytics and removing IT complexity. Our inclusion, among other critical and innovative players in the space, signifies a tipping point for the BI market for those organizations that have addressed a previously unmet need to put the power of analytics in the hands of the business user.
According to the report, “buying decisions are now being made, or heavily influenced, primarily by business users that demand easy-to-use and easy-to-buy products that deliver clear business value and enable powerful analytics with limited technical expertise without required up-front involvement from IT.”
In today’s business environment, there is more data in a small startup’s hands than there was 10 years ago in a Fortune 100 company’s. Businesses need a way to not just manage this data, but to extract valuable insights that can impact their bottom line. But business users can’t be bottlenecked by IT every time they need to ask a question or analyze a complex data set. At Sisense, we’re constantly updating our platform to make it easier and quicker for everyday business users to drive insights from their large, disparate data sets. In fact, in this year’s Magic Quadrant, we’re proud to share that we ranked second highest in terms of ease-of-use for our platform, and second highest for business benefits achieved.
This acknowledgement from Gartner marks yet another milestone for Sisense, building off of a landmark year of growth and market disruption. Furthermore, it displays a strong commitment to continued innovation and enhancement of our platform to drive better, more accessible insights from complex data for the business user.
