The Business Analytics Research Council (BARC) results from the world’s largest and most comprehensive survey of business intelligence end-users ranks Tableau as #1 of all 30 participating vendors in Business Benefits, Business Achievement, and Agility. Read this whitepaper to find out why.
We've also pulled out the first several pages of the whitepaper for you to read. Download the PDF on the right to read the rest.
The BI Survey 13 is based on findings from the world's largest and most comprehensive survey of business intelligence end-users, conducted earlier this year. In total, 3,149 people responded to The Survey with 2,298 answering a series of detailed questions about their usage of a named product. Altogether, 30 products or groups of products received a detailed analysis.
The BI Survey 13 examines BI product selection and usage among users in areas including business benefits, costs, proportion of employees using the product, competitiveness, recommendation, innovation, performance, customer satisfaction and agility.
One thing that all BI deployments ought to have in common is that they should deliver business benefits. We asked several questions that helped us measure how successful respondents’ deployments had been. The combined results were then used as a calibration tool that is widely used throughout The Survey to assess the correlation between many factors and project success.
This is the third year that Tableau features in The BI Survey. It appeared this year with a healthy sample of 48 users.
Around 57 percent of participants said they were using Tableau version 8 and 36 percent version 7.
Tableau is a visual analysis product. The tool is strongly oriented towards business users who can create new reports or visualizations for themselves. But customers appear to be using the solution more broadly.
Analysis results produced in Tableau are used in dashboards and reports built with this solution. Especially interesting is the fact that Tableau is used for budgeting/planning yet offers no planning functionality itself.
The figures suggest that analytical insights (forecasting, etc) are also being used within planning processes.
Tableau is being pushed into the larger enterprises as a self-service BI tool. This means the technology is often looked upon as a departmental rather than an enterprise-wide one. Our user number results also reveal that demand for the product is coming from the mid market.
The product is often seen as an alternative to QlikTech.
Peer groups are used to ensure similar products are compared against each other both in fairness to the vendor and for the benefit of the customer. The groups are essential to allow fair and useful comparisons of products that are likely to compete.
The peer groups are primarily data-driven and based on how customers say they use the product.
Tableau features in the following peer groups:
The BI Survey 13 provides the reader with well-designed dashboards packed with concise information using aggregated KPIs, which can be absorbed at a glance. The KPIs all follow these simple rules:
Tableau is top ranked in all of the peer groups in the business benefits KPI, an extremely strong result. This clearly indicates the additional value the product brings to customers post implementation. This is in line with vendor’s goal to deliver an intuitive self-service Discovery product which helps business people gain new insights by visually browsing and analyzing data.
Currently, Tableau is the fastest growing vendor and results later in this report explain this phenomenon. The company’s focus on the advanced visual representation of data - plus the easy interaction for the business user that comes with using the product - creates a set of capabilities which filter, visualize and integrate data. This functionality appears to be delivering business benefits.
