Forrester Wave Report: It’s Not Your Old School BI Landscape Anymore

Forrester rate Qlik a Leader in Business Analytics

The key message from the recent Forrester Wave Q3 2017 Report for Enterprise BI Platforms With Majority On-Premises Deployments, is that you better be evolving your business analytics to keep up, as it’s no longer an old-school BI landscape.  Qlik was rated a Leader in the report by Forrester.

BI technologies have evolved at lightning speed over the last two years which has forced many analysts to re-group their BI segments when assessing vendors and their capabilities. Enterprise versus self-service and agile BI are now one in the same, as BI tools must be enterprise class, quick to change and deliver and be user-driven otherwise they fail to meet customer requirements. In addition, cloud and data visualization capabilities are considered mandatory for a leading BI toolset and are no longer considered separate segments by Forrester. 

In the most recent Forrester Wave Q3 2017 Report for Enterprise BI Platforms With Majority On-Premises Deployments Forrester provides detailed product evaluations highlighting key BI product differentiators if you’re assessing capabilities for your organisation.

Qlik was named a Leader in the report, with Forrester stating that, "Qlik continues to differentiate with its powerful associative BI engine" with its exploratory UI noted as "one reason customer references awarded Qlik one of the highest scores for business value in terms of ROI."  Simply put, all BI tools work great when you know how to ask a question and what specific data sources, tables and columns contain the information you’re looking for.  What if you don’t?  This is the sweet spot for Qlik’s two products, Qlik Sense and QlikView according to Forrester.
