The data contained in this section of The BI Verdict is based on the results of The BI Survey, the world's largest independent survey of Business Intelligence (BI) and Performance Management (PM) users. Unlike many other surveys, it is not sponsored by any vendor.
Conducted annually, The BI Survey uncovers the truth about why real-world organizations select BI products, what they do with them, and why they eventually abandon them. It also compares the leading products on the market across a number of key criteria such as performance, scalability and vendor support.
