As Visionary as 1-2-3: Our take on the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant

As Visionary as 1-2-3: Our take on the 2022 Gartner Magic Quadrant

As they all say, it is that time of the year again.

The 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Analytics and BI Platforms report has just been published, and we are thrilled to announce that Yellowfin has been named a Visionary for the third consecutive year!

We believe it’s a huge accomplishment to be recognized three years in a row, also marking our ninth year in the quadrant — one that wouldn’t be possible without the dedication, trust and collaboration from our world class team of Yellowfin-ians, customers, and partners.

Analytics for Anyone, Anywhere

Many factors are involved that culminate to a placement like this, but we believe our continued innovative product vision for the analytics consumer, high customer satisfaction, and expansive capabilities for both enterprise and embedded analytics use cases are key to this recognition.

We saw very early on that the intersection of automated business monitoring, data storytelling, and the need for new data experiences will forever transform the way different users create, consume, and share insights with each other.

And with that understanding, the Yellowfin team set out on a mission to solve the data complexity involved in truly tailoring an analytics experience for anyone, anywhere in the business.

In an ideal world, all employees serving across job functions would be able to access and analyze all the information they need with ease. Unfortunately, today most analytics technologies still require specialized skills and expertise.

With the release of Guided NLQ, we are solving this problem.

Guided NLQ removes obstacles in self-service analytics by enabling anyone in the business — regardless of analytics expertise — to ask data questions in plain language and instantly receive an answer.

But that is only one-half of the story.

Unifying the analytics experience

Our unique guided approach and seamless integration of natural language queries with Yellowfin Dashboards, Reports, and Stories help minimize the frustration and maximize the productivity of those working with data.

We pushed even further with enhancements to Yellowfin Signals and Stories by integrating both automated business monitoring and data storytelling feeds directly into our action-based dashboards.

Similar to the IT concept of a ‘single pane of glass’ — we have unified the augmented analytics experience by enabling different users to analyze their data, be notified of critical changes in real-time, understand the context behind the numbers and respond with the right actions — all from a single display.

One of the key trends identified by Gartner is that, "Increasingly, the focus of augmentation is shifting from the analyst persona to the consumer or decision maker."

What is available to our customers and partners with Yellowfin is an analytics consumption experience that is unmatched.

As businesses drive initiatives to deal with disruptions, become more agile in meeting customer expectations, and impact their competitive situation — we understand that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all for every analytics transformation project.

The key drivers for a successful business outcome will be the flexibility and speed in composing the right data experience.

Yellowfin provides these businesses the embedding capabilities necessary to package the right data experience and embed them directly into a software application’s core workflows — where decisions are made.

It is the combination of all these analytics capabilities into a single platform that allows more people, whoever they are, wherever they are, to see, understand and do more with their data.

Looking ahead

Again, we are elated to be receiving this recognition for the third consecutive year.

We are even more so in continuing to deliver an industry-leading analytics platform that provides our customers and partners the flexibility, functionality, and governance needed to create beautiful data experiences.
