Business Intelligence (BI) is growing by leaps and bounds. According to Gartner, the BI and analytics market will reach $16.9 billion this year, a 5.2% increase over last year. This growth is further evidenced in the annual “Top CIO priorities” lists, in which BI/analytics has taken the top spot a few years running.
Driven by this increased demand for BI, new tools are cropping up left and right. If you’re in the market for a BI solution, you’ll easily find hundreds (if not thousands) of options to choose from. The big question: How do you know which option to choose? Are you going to compare every available option? Probably not.
