The BI & Analytics Guide™ 2024 gives you instant access to a large amount of directly applicable knowledge about BI, analytics, big data, and artificial intelligence (AI). Whether you want to select a BI tool or vendor, or learn all about the field itself, this guide will save you a lot of time (and money). In our guide 26 BI vendors and more than 150 BI products are covered like Power BI, Qlik Sense, Tableau, OBIEE, TIBCO Spotfire, etc. All the research has been done for you: we have “measured” the vendors and mapped the entire field. We do this from a 100% independent perspective. This unique guide has recently been completely updated. Download the BI & Analytics Guide 2024 now.

Why buy the BI & Analytics Guide?

The interactive Business Intelligence & Analytics Guide is compiled by experts with over 20 years of experience in the field and is designed for the broad community of employees, consultants, and managers who are (or will be) involved in BI, AI & Analytics. The applications of this guide are large but the two most common uses of our BI & Analytics Guide are:

1. Vendor selection: easily compose a long- and shortlist

Select and evaluate supplier(s) that best meet the requirements of your organization or project. Quickly create a shortlist of vendors that meet your (knock-out) selection criteria. Use up to 250 selection criteria with a layered structure and drill down to three levels deep.

BI Guide insights per themeFigure 1: Initially you see the ranking of the various suppliers in 15 main categories but you can easily drill down and zoom in on detailed aspects.

See instantly what the stronger and less developed qualities of the suppliers and products are. Use the self-service analysis module (which can be ordered as an extra option) with which you can determine yourself which suppliers to keep in scope and which topics and selection criteria you consider important. You can use the BI & Analytics Guide for an objective supplier assessment, in the run-up to an RFP process, a tool selection, or in preparation for a presentation. You can use all the charts in our guide in your presentation, tweet, or post in no time and free of charge.

The research capabilies of this guide are many and matched what I needed. The value I got from using the guide is that it brought me to a conclusion I was not expecting.
