Having the right data at the right time in the right format is vital for organizations to survive and compete and having the best tools is essential, now more than ever. Data has very little value just sitting in databases; it becomes valuable when it can be accessed, analyzed, and visualized quickly and easily to optimize decision making across the organization.
On October 15th, the Business Application Research Center (BARC) released the 13th annual publication of their business intelligence software survey, The BI Survey 14. This report is the world’s largest independent survey of business intelligence software users, and examines BI product selection and usage from the survey responses of over 2,300 software users about 34 products and product groups. We are proud to announce Entrinsik’s inclusion in the BI Survey for the first time this year, with survey responses from close to 40 of our wonderful customers.
BARC’s report of Entrinsik’s Survey results can be downloaded for free at www.entrinsik.com/bisurvey14.
The BI Survey analyzes and rates BI products in areas such as business benefit, costs, proportion of employees using the product, competitiveness, recommendation, customer satisfaction, and agility. Products are separated into peer groups based on how customers say they use the product to ensure similar products are fairly compared against each other. Entrinsik Informer was placed in both the “Dashboarding vendor” and “Ad-hoc Reporting vendor” peer groups.
Informer customers assigned high ratings in terms of ease of use, recommendation, price-to-value perception, and vendor and implementer support, among many other areas. In the dashboard vendor and ad-hoc reporting vendor peer groups, Informer was rated higher than any other vendor in the “Ease of Use” and “Chosen as Standard” categories, emphasizing the product’s ultimate usability and satisfaction from users. Informer was also a leading vendor in multiple areas, including price-to-value perception, proportion of employees using the product, vendor support, project length, customer satisfaction, and agility.
“Entrinsik is leading the way in terms of setting the standards as to what dashboard and ad-hoc reporting environments need to adopt,” says Dr. Carsten Bange, founder and CEO of BARC. “Their customers rank Informer higher in the chosen as standard KPI than all other dashboard and ad-hoc software providers. With its user-friendly interface and flexible authoring tools, Entrinsik Informer is among the more highly rated tools by customers for self-service.”
We are excited to be recognized by BARC, and we hope that it will support our efforts to reach out to organizations around the world who need an agile, affordable, and easy-to-use reporting & BI solution like Informer.
