Yellowfin: A recognized and recommended leader in Business Intelligence

The global study, compiled via eligible survey respondents – those with first-hand experience using vendor products and services, compared 23 of the world’s leading BI vendors and awarded Yellowfin the best overall score of 4.74 out of five. One hundred percent of respondents also said that they would recommend Yellowfin and its products.

“Yellowfin’s unmatched performance in 2013’s wisdom of crowds study underscores the success of our consumer-oriented approach to the BI market,” said Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie. “Not only do these outstanding results reflect the quality experience enjoyed by our customers, they also demonstrate Yellowfin’s ability to deliver unrivalled product, services and support.

“As with last year, we’ve exceeded peer and overall sample averages – across all categories of assessment – by a considerable margin. More importantly, we’ve also improved across all categories of assessment compared with our previous year’s results. This outcome renews our passion to keep making Business Intelligence as user-friendly and intuitive as possible.”

The global study ranked vendors on a five-point scale, across 33 different criteria, based on 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. The study was based on a total of 1182 completed surveys.

Yellowfin received the equal highest overall ranking in DAS’ 2012 wisdom of crowds report, and highest outright score in the study’s emerging BI vendors category, with 4.57 out of five.
