by C&E Blogger

Forrester Research, Inc. has positioned Microsoft as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Business Intelligence Platforms, Q4 2013. Forrester analyst Boris Evelson notes in the report that “While many BI platform features are becoming commoditized, it’s not the individual capabilities that differentiate the Leaders, but rather the completeness, comprehensiveness, and integration of the entire BI architectural stack. In addition to increasingly popular features like analytics, data visualization, dashboards, and data exploration, the Leaders also provide the pixel-perfect, industrial-strength report writers that companies still need.”
