Yellowfin one of world’s best BI dashboard interfaces says TechnologyAdvice

TechnologyAdvice, an American enterprise technology research and advisory firm, has named global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software vendor, Yellowfin, amongst the world’s four best BI dashboard interfaces.

The Best BI Dashboard Interfaces review labeled Yellowfin as the “Innovative Game Changer” of the BI dashboard market. The report cited the vendor’s Collaborative BI capabilities, namely Timeline – Yellowfin’s Facebook-like newsfeed that records a users’ activities and interactions within Yellowfin in real-time, as particularly noteworthy.

“Yellowfin offers a user-friendly BI platform and great functionality,” stated author Jenna Puckett. “Yellowfin continually receives awards and recognition for its mobility, design, and functionality, but its most unique feature is a Timeline that records a user’s specific activities and interactions in real-time.

“Called ‘Facebook for BI’, the Timeline is a searchable, chronological catalog of an individual user’s activity. According to Gartner’s research, Yellowfin’s customers reported using its collaboration features more extensively than did those of most other vendors.”

Yellowfin Chief Operating Officer, Justin Hewitt, said that Yellowfin was receiving industry recognition for being first to market with innovative collaborative features and functionality.

“Assisting people to easily share data-based insights has always been a core part of Yellowfin’s mission to make reporting and analytics broadly accessible,” said Hewitt. “Evidence of this is the fact that Yellowfin was first to market with Storyboard – Yellowfin’s fully integrated and interactive PowerPoint-like presentation and collaboration platform for BI content.”

The Business Applications Research Center’s (BARC) The BI Survey 14, the world’s largest annual survey of BI users, also acknowledged Yellowfin as a “consistently outstanding Ad-hoc Reporting Vendor in Collaboration”, having achieved leading scores for this innovative KPI over the past three iterations of the study.

The Info-Tech Research Group’s 2014 Mid-Market Business Intelligence Vendor Landscape report cited Yellowfin as an “Exemplary Performer” in Collaborative BI.

Yellowfin was also identified for its standout usability and collaborative capabilities in Nucleus Research’s 2013 and 2014 Technology Value Matrix for Business Intelligence and Analytics reports.

Puckett wrote that the purpose of the TechnologyAdvice review was to assist organizations searching for a BI solution to distinguish “the bells and whistles from the necessities” by featuring “some of the best BI dashboard interfaces on the market, as well as what to look for when choosing a solution for your business.”
