The BI Survey has started

The BI Survey 10 has started! The world’s oldest and largest survey of users of business intelligence software is now online. Last year’s survey garnered over three thousand responses and could build on a data set stretching back to 2001 to analyze the trends in the market for business intelligence tools.

The BI Survey has always had the goal of shedding light on the real world issues that matter to users. It avoids the latest hype and buzzwords and focuses on costs, goal achievements and business benefits. It helps potential buyers avoid typical pitfalls of buying and implementing business intelligence software. The Survey also provides vendors with no-nonsense information on what buyers really need, not what they say they want.

This year the Survey sharpens its focus on the project. Business intelligence has changed as it has become more accepted, and more, larger vendors have entered the market. The year we pinpoint new issues:

  • The size and scope of projects, and how these influence business benefits
  • Finding the right product for a given project
  • Who implements the project and how much it costs
  • Business participation in product selection and implementation


The survey compares the leading products on the market across a number of headline criteria such as performance, scalability and vendor support. Also it is based on actual data instead of just educated guesses, which makes it a great resource for any company evaluating business intelligence products.
