Top 20 Business Intelligence Solution Companies - 2019

Business Intelligence (BI)—once the sole province of IT data experts and information analysts—is now democratized for strategic advantage, and ready access and analysis of data across numerous organizations. With the development of groundbreaking technological trends such as AI, automation, natural language generation, et al, business intelligence has gained a whiff of fresh air. With the evolution of data science, there is a rationalized and flexible availability to the decision-makers who may not be savvy, in terms of data analytics. With features that simplify access to datasets, visualization creation, and report sharing, self-service BI solutions enable end users to integrate robust data analysis regardless of their role in an organization, seamlessly transforming data consumers to active data analysts. The BI solution combined with a self-service real-time data analysis tool empowers users to make smart, informed decisions while eradicating the complexities of data accumulation, and shifting the monopolies of data extraction.

While data has turned out to be the new currency for organizations, the need for sophisticated business intelligence solution deployment has grown in order to expedite and improve the decision-making process. Sure, monitoring the latest data assists decision makers to respond quickly and accurately, but this data-driven process comprises several silos of simple yet cumbersome tasks. Automating these tasks allows more time for the data scientists to divert their attention and expertise to other important tasks of strategic and business importance to empower them in taking the steps towards a broader roadmap for an organization.

With solution providers for business intelligence filling up to the brim in the industry, our distinguished selection panel, comprising CEOs, CIOs, industry analysts, and CIOReview’s editorial board narrowed down on solution providers that exhibit competence and innovation in the business intelligence space.

We present to you CIOReview’s “Top 20 Business Intelligence Solution Providers – 2019.”
