Vendor Landscape: Mid-Market BI

Enabling business users to make intelligent business decisions.

  • Business Intelligence (BI) solutions have the potential to help organizations of all sizes gain valuable insights from otherwise nebulous data sets. Unstructured data from social sites can provide organizations with important insights, however harnessing and interpreting this data can be a difficult task.
  • Small and mid-sized organizations often lack resources for full-scale BI deployments. They require BI solutions with strong self-service reporting and analytics. Increasing importance is placed on automated processes, and intuitive interfaces.
  • With a range of products available, small and mid-sized organizations must select the solution that best meets their needs and their budget.

Our Advice

  • Massive amounts of unstructured data exists on social sites. BI vendors are currently working towards making this information accessible for mid-market organizations. However, most solutions still lack the ability to provide insight and advice for interpretation of the data after captured.
  • Cloud-based SaaS with local data sources is emerging as an affordable method for mid-market organizations. It enables the data to remain secure, but keeps software usage costs low.
