Capterra names Yellowfin among top 20 Business Intelligence solutions

Global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software vendor, Yellowfin, has been named among the world’s 20 most popular BI solutions in an industry study by enterprise software advisory firm, Capterra.

The review, compiled by independent industry research conducted by Capterra in conjunction with vendor-issued information, ranked vendors’ popularity based on the number of customers, active users and social media presence of each product.

Director of Marketing at Capterra, Katie Hollar, said that in a crowded BI market, it was “important to find the right software to fit the data needs of your company”.

“We think [Capterra’s popularity and usage figures] are the best estimates currently available to the public, and a better representation of the BI market than looking at revenue alone,” said Hollar.

Yellowfin CEO, Glen Rabie, echoed Hollar’s sentiments, stating that BI success and marketplace influence were made up of multiple factors.

“While Yellowfin’s business has experienced substantial growth in 2014, it’s important to look at the reasons behind that success,” said Rabie. “We’ve been able to win new customers and impact the BI market by delivering both a customer-centric product and a flexible and transparent approach to doing business. A company culture that puts satisfying our clients’ BI objectives first.

“With over 1.5 million active users, and a 60 percent growth rate in net new customers for calendar year 2014, Yellowfin is quickly becoming a global force in the Business Intelligence industry,” said Rabie. “Our more than 10,000 customers, spread across all major industries and geographies, do business with us for our consumer-oriented approach to BI, and ability to deliver market-leading Collaborative BI, Mobile BI and location analytics capabilities.”
