In previous posts on Gartner’s survey results from their recent reports around the 2010 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms, we focused on how customers rated vendors overall customers experience and on software quality and support quality. In this third post about the Gartner results, we’re looking at how customers use their BI platforms.
In the image above (created by Gartner not using Tableau's applications), we’re seeing the percent of customers using the product for one of eight different BI activities. Each stacked bar represents the summation of those. Since one customer can use a product for multiple functions, the stacked bar reaches well over 100%.
It was great to see that Tableau customers use Tableau for a lot of activities. I hope that means that Tableau customers get a lot of value from Tableau.
And thank you again to the customers who participated in the Gartner research; we can’t tell you how much we appreciate it.
