The Ventana Research Value Index: Business Intelligence in 2012 is the distillation of a year of market and product research efforts by Ventana Research, the premier benchmark research and advisory services firm. Built on a foundation of 10 years of business and technology research, this unbiased fact-based index is the first such industry undertaking to assess the value of software designed specifically for enabling Business Intelligence.
This Ventana Research Value Index is an analytic representation of our assessment of how well vendors' offerings meet buyers' requirements for software that enables and supports Business Intelligence. The Index evaluates the software in the context of seven key categories. Five are product-related: adaptability, manageability, reliability, usability and functionality. In addition, we considered two customer assurance categories: total cost of ownership and return on investment, and validation. To assess functionality we applied the Ventana Research Business Intelligence evaluation framework which evaluates three key fundamental tenants: data, analytics and communication, which support a broad range of needs for organizations business and IT needs.
While there are dozens of analyst reports with varying types of charts that proclaim leaders, we have found little substantive research that focuses on how to apply information technology to the business and technology requirements of managing performance like you would in your organization. In light of the fact that many factors, among them a company's purchasing history, personal connections and vendor biases, can cloud the objectivity of acquisition assessments. We offer this research as impartial and authoritative; any organization looking to assess, validate and improve its Business Intelligence investments and technology should utilize the Value Index, and the research on which it is based, as a key part of its evaluation process.
