research and product reviews. BI Scorecard tests BI solutions hands-on,

them from the perspective of prospective customers.

The report notes Yellowfin’s collaborative components, ability to
generate geospatial reports and mobile functionality that includes native

Yellowfin offers real-time analysis via an in-memory database but, in
contrast to other in-memory solutions, also contains a meta data layer
for easy business user navigation.

The study acknowledges increases in widespread business user
driven/oriented BI deployments, declaring that “Business intelligence is
no longer just a departmental effort and has continued to evolve into a
mission critical solution, now essential to companies from all industries
and sizes.”

The report also recognizes the continued rise of Mobile BI and its
increasing usefulness for fast-paced decision-making on the go,
pronouncing that “Customers should make Mobile BI a part of their BI
delivery plans but should continue to expect significant change in this
segment.”
