Artificial intelligence was identified by Nucleus Research as one of the trends driving investment in analytics this year - and this capability is seen in both Yellowfin’s Assisted Insights and in the innovative Yellowfin Signals product, which automates data discovery, that was recently released.

Dan Elman, Nucleus Research Analyst, said, “Yellowfin is pacing the market as the leader in usability and looks to be continuing this positive momentum with the recent announcement of Signals and Stories. With Signals automatically surfacing new insights in real time and Stories to enrich those insights with situational context, Yellowfin further demonstrates its commitment to providing advanced, actionable analytics in an easy-to-use package.”
