- IBM undoubtedly tops a crowded leaders' quadrant. Gartner said that the Cognos BI platform's (which were recently acquired by IBM) "Web services-based SOA" tops in the market, with shared metadata across the platform enabling ease of transfer from report to query to analysis. Cognos' Microsoft Office integration and advanced visualization capabilities also helped its cause.
- Microsoft maintains its position in the leaders' quadrant for second consecutive year, largely on the strength of its "broadly capable product set at a low price point," according to Gartner. Its BI pricing and packaging options make it particularly attractive to first-time BI customers and companies looking to reduce the number and complexity of BI tools, the report said.
- Oracle also remained in the leaders' quadrant this year. Gartner cited as Oracle's strengths its 70+ industry-specific BI applications, its improved security and administration capabilities, and its ability to federate data from multiple sources into its BI applications.
