The Ventana Research Value Index: Mobile Business Intelligence in 2014 is the first quantified, research-based Index evaluating technology vendors and products for mobile business intelligence. Using this new Value Index, business and IT organizations will be able to evaluate business intelligence on mobile technologies and examine software vendors’ offerings, enabling buyers to assess product offerings based on a deeper understanding of how the technology can address their business requirements.
Ventana Research’s Value Indexes are the product of more than two decades of experience and knowledge of the market and of in-depth analyses of technology suppliers' products. The Value Index for Mobile Business Intelligence is based on a comprehensive examination of vendors’ products and their ability to support the full span of processes and methodologies used in business intelligence within smartphone and tablet environments from Apple, Google Android, RIM BlackBerry and Microsoft Surface. The Value index assessment process examines the support for interactivity and visualization, customization of presentation and support for a variety of roles including users, analysts and IT. Making informed investments in such software will maximize an organization’s accessibility to metrics from analytics and information to be better informed and where needed take action and make decisions.
In the 2014 Value Index for Mobile Business Intelligence, the companies that deliver the highest value on an overall weighted-evaluation basis are MicroStrategy, which qualifies as a Hot vendor, followed by 10 other Hot vendors: IBM, SAP, QlikTech, Information Builders, Yellowfin, Tableau Software, Roambi, SAS, Oracle and arcplan. Five vendors were rated as Warm: Actuate, Pentaho, Jaspersoft, Logi Analytics and Birst.
The Value Index is the result of a detailed evaluation of the suitability-to-task of each offering’s capabilities as well as the product’s support of usability, manageability, reliability and adaptability. These aspects of the evaluation reflect how organizations conduct RFI/RFP; they are unique to the Value Index report and are not covered to any depth in other analyst firm ratings that have limited or no evaluation of actual products but examine more on customers and revenue of the vendor.
