Pyramid Analytics earns top rankings in 2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities Report

Pyramid Analytics is ranked #1 for Visual Self-Service Analytics

The goal of analytics and business intelligence software is simple: to help people make better decisions. In some cases, it is as fundamental as visualizing rows and columns of data to find crucial facts or patterns. In other cases, it makes insights actionable and interactive to discover why something happened; to predict the likelihood of an event occurring before it happens; or even better, to influence what will happen next.

With an already-crowded marketplace, evaluating analytics vendors can be a cumbersome and tedious task. Gartner, the world’s leading research and advisory company, has even been quoted as saying that the best dot position in their renowned Magic Quadrant for Analytics and BI Platforms does not necessarily mean the best product. So, what is the best path for finding the right analytics vendor for your enterprise’s unique needs?

One great research tool is none other than the companion piece to the Magic Quadrant: the 2021 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms. In the report, the advisory firm touts 2021 as the start of the augmented era of analytics and that data and analytics leaders should begin providing capabilities to support the analytics consumer, as well as authors, with “smart” features that make the technology more accessible to a broader base of users.

This year’s report focuses on 12 specific capabilities, and four unique use cases around Visual Self-Service Analytics, Enterprise Analytics, General Analytics, and Augmented Analytics. It provides rankings based on Gartner Peer Insights survey data collected from analytics and BI practitioners, rating vendors on a score of 1.0 to 5.0.

Pyramid Analytics outperformed vendors such as Microsoft, Qlik, Tableau, Sisense, MicroStrategy, IBM, SAP, and a long list of others!
