Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms 2015

Gartner's infamous Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms for 2015 has just been released. You can see the quadrant below. We will write about it a little later.

Also compare it with Magic Quadrant of 2014 (see below).

For now some notes :


  • Tableau's stellar rise to leaders quadrant and now becoming the outliner performing better than all others is much more pronounced now in 2015. And this is still before the exiting new release of Version 9. Gartner says "Tableau has clearly defined the market in terms of data discovery, with a focus on "helping people see and understand their data." It is currently the perceived market leader with most vendors viewing Tableau as the competitor they most want to be like and to beat. At a minimum, they want to stop the encroachment of Tableau into their customer accounts."
  • Tibco Software fell from leaders to visionaries. Gartner says "The future of Tibco itself is uncertain, following the acquisition of the company by Vista Equity Partners (which closed in December 2014). In the near term, Tibco will operate as a privately held single entity, as it did when it was publicly traded, but the longer-term intentions of Vista are not yet clear. The ingredients for a leading BI and analytics platform are present with Tibco's many strategic acquisitions; however, Vista will need to implement major changes to address the sales model and execution issues, which have plagued Tibco historically, in order to regain traction and once again be recognized as a market leader."
  • Logi Analytics is moving closer to leaders quadrant.
