We are very excited to announce that once again, Entrinsik has been chosen for inclusion in the BARC BI Suvey 17, the world‘s largest and most comprehensive survey of business intelligence end users.

Informer customers ranked us highly again this year – achieving the #1 spot in six unique categories within our peer groups.

Across all its three peer groups, Entrinsik Informer is ranked number one for ‘Embedded BI’ and ‘Competitive Win Rate’. Compared with other dashboarding-focused products, Informer is ranked number one for ‘Self Service’, ‘Sales Experience,’ and ‘Competitiveness’, in addition to seven other leader positions. Informer also achieved a top rank for ‘Ease of Use’ in the ‘Self-Service Reporting Focused Products’ and ‘Americas Focused Vendors’ Peer Groups. In those two peer groups, Informer also attained several other top ranks and leader placements.

“Entrinsik’s focus on specific markets and its partner ecosystem makes the offering attractive because of documented previous successes and a high-quality customer experience during the sales process,” says Dr. Christian Fuchs, Head of Analytics and Data Management Practice at BARC. “The company is especially good at supporting customers from first contact until they reach their business goals.”

With Informer, organizations can quickly connect to their traditional or uncommon databases, spreadsheets, and unstructured data streams all without time-consuming warehousing or cubing. Users can access, blend, and cleanse data in a few easy steps, then utilize data discovery to explore, analyze, and visualize relevant information. Informer enables end users to confidently manipulate and interact with data, collaborate with colleagues, and even create a personalized home page to access the information they need quickly.

“For over 30 years Entrinsik has invested consistently in research and development to make Informer a full-fledged BI platform known for its ease of use and self-service.  We are always pleased to see this reflected in customer feedback,” says Doug Leupen, President and CEO at Entrinsik. “Our team has focused on simplifying every part of the platform so first-time users can begin using Informer fully with as little training as possible. Non-technical users can feel comfortable navigating the platform, exploring their data, building reports and dashboards, and sharing insights in minutes.”
