“For the second year in a row, survey results from Informer users indicate Entrinsik is a leader among BI solutions, receiving high rankings for ease of use, self-service and price-to-value perception,” said Dr. Carsten Bange, founder and CEO of BARC. “Entrinsik’s strong following amongst community colleges and mid-size universities, as well as insurance and manufacturing companies demonstrates the effectiveness of its affordable enterprise-wide pricing model, and user self-service. Informer tends to compete very well with other vendors once it becomes part of the selection process.”

Conducted earlier this year, the BI Survey received over 3,000 responses to survey questions in total, and 35 products (or groups of products) are analyzed and compared based on 35 categories (or KPIs). The Survey examines BI product selection and usage among users in categories (KPIs) including business benefits, proportion of employees using the product, competitiveness, innovation, performance, customer satisfaction and agility.

“These survey results reflect our commitment to equip organizations with insights previously seen as too hard or time consuming to obtain,” said Sharon Shelton, VP Marketing at Entrinsik. “We are proud to be rated a leader in key areas such as ease of use and price-to-value perception based on the most important feedback we can get – from customers using our software every day.”
