Business analytics is one of the fastest growing and most exciting tier 1 applications in the enterprise today. More and more businesses across industries are turning to data for business intelligence, investing in advanced analytics and visualization tools to deliver deeper insights throughout their organization.
As BI continues to gain traction as a true market disruptor, Gartner has just released its 2017 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms. Pyramid Analytics is pleased to be recognized in this report for the fourth consecutive year. We believe to be consistently recognized means we are doing something right. And the industry, and our customers, agree.
As we take a step back, we know most BI projects fail. They fail because they are too time-consuming, expensive, and risky.
With this in mind, ensuring the success of our customers’ business analytics strategies has been, and always will be, our top priority. As we have grown our business over this last decade, we have done so with customers at the heart of our strategy. We align our goals with theirs, ensuring we are well-positioned to support their business for the long term. As we think about driving innovation, we look ahead one, five, or even ten years to make sure our platform is setting the agenda for the market’s rapid pace of change. And we believe we do this better than any other solution in the market.
Our modern business analytics platform, BI Office, was designed as a balanced enterprise platform that offers comprehensive functionality to a full spectrum of users—from analysts to business users. BI Office fills the huge gap that’s in the market today between desktop tools and legacy BI systems. Desktop tools fall short in terms of offering a robust feature set and true data governance capabilities. Legacy BI systems can’t keep pace with the speed of modern business, leaving users with stale, static data. We believe BI Office is the only truly scalable solution on the market today that strikes a critical balance between self-service analytics and centralized governance for both in-company clouds and traditional on-premises servers. This allows companies to accelerate user adoption in terms of days—not months.
We continue to advance the breadth and interoperability of our platform in the marketplace. Many customers leverage the value of BI Office to connect to other data sources, including Oracle, Hadoop, and Microsoft Azure. Our SAP®-certified connector allows streamlined and managed access to all data sources in the SAP system, including SAP HANA and SAP BW. Enhanced integration in BI Office enables Microsoft Power BI users to import their data files to an on-premises or private cloud server. Moving forward, we will drive innovation that enables customers to gain value beyond their existing infrastructure investments by offering self-service, governed access to their data—regardless of their environment.
As we look to the year ahead, we are all about innovation and putting our customers first. As a driver of disruptive modernization, we will continue to deepen our investments in research and development to propel this next wave of business analytics for the industry.
I encourage you to see some of the amazing stories of transformation as our customers streamline their operations, save money—in some cases, millions—and advance their competitive advantage with our platform.
