Study Results

Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Study

Yellowfin achieved the highest overall ranking, against the world's foremost BI tools, in the 2012 and 2013 versions of the report.

The studies rank vendors across seven categories, including: Sales experience, value, quality and usefulness of product, quality of technical support, quality and value of consulting services, integrity and whether existing clients would recommend the vendor and its product to others.

Mobile Business Intelligence Market Study

Yellowfin outscored big name players again in DAS’ latest Mobile Business Intelligence Market Study.

The study ranked BI vendor’s mobile capabilities according to the number of platforms supported, the level of platform integration and range of features offered.

The BI Survey

Yellowfin was identified as the standout dashboard vendor in BARC’s latest BI Survey, compared to 26 vendors across two Peer Groups.

The survey offers insight into how and why organizations utilize BI technologies, and offers direct – apples-for-apples – comparisons between the BI market’s premier BI products, across important functional, performance and support criteria.
