                Product Reviews

                Written by our team of experienced analysts, based on tests carried out in our software lab.
                Beginning with a vendor overview, they then discuss aspects of the product such as licensing,
                architecture, administration, front-ends, reporting and a general overview of the product's
                strengths and weaknesses.


                Delivered in easy-to-use Excel format, each factbase gives you a feature-by-feature score of the
                product accompanied by additional notes and commentary.

                Customer verdicts

                Based on the results of the world's largest and most detailed annual survey of BI users. A bullet-
                chart for each product enables you to quickly identify its strengths and weaknesses.

                Market Analyses and Commentaries

                A series of in-depth analyses and insightful commentaries from a vendor-neutral perspective. Our
                team of seasoned BI experts cover a variety of themes to give you the information you need to
                make your project a success. The analyses are split into sections:

                1. Understanding BI — Explanations of some of the technological aspects of business intelligence

                2. Advice to users — Tips and guidance guaranteed to improve the success of your project

                The BI Survey Summary
            The data contained in this section of The BI Verdict is based on the results of The BI Survey, the
            world's largest independent survey of Business Intelligence (BI) and Performance Management
            (PM) users. Unlike many other surveys, it is not sponsored by any vendor.

            Conducted annually, The BI Survey uncovers the truth about why real-world organizations select BI
            products, what they do with them, and why they eventually abandon them. It also compares the
            leading products on the market across a number of key criteria such as performance, scalability
            and vendor support.

            Subscribers to The BI Verdict gain access to:

            1. Key Findings from The BI Survey 8 - A detail-rich summary of many of the key findings from the
            latest edition of The BI Survey.

            2. Product KPI Dashboards - A condensed yet highly informative summary showing how 23 market-
            leading products rate on 26 key performance indicators.
