Pyramid Analytics, provider of the next-generation business analytics platform for the enterprise, has announced BI Office's debut in BARC's 2016 Business Intelligence Score Report. Pyramid Analytics was recently recognized for outstanding performance by BARC in its 2016 BI Survey and achieved No. 1 rankings in several key categories.
This year marks BARC's second annual publication of the Score, a compressive report that analyzes leading vendors in the business intelligence platform market.
"Given its impressive product rating and strengthening market execution, Pyramid is well positioned for market expansion," said Larissa Seidler, Senior Analyst at BARC.
The BARC Score evaluates vendors along two dimensions: portfolio capabilities and market execution. Portfolio capabilities include product functionality, infrastructure, and portfolio integration and maturity. The market execution dimension focuses on product strategy, customer satisfaction, sales strategy, financials, geographical coverage, ecosystem, marketing strategy and organizational strength.
The BARC Score Report highlights several key differentiating strengths of BI Office:
- Content Lifecycle Tracking and Sharing. By decoupling business logic and visualizations from the data model, BI Office allows users to share custom calculations and sets for reuse throughout the enterprise. If that logic must be altered, it will update every content asset it references– from dashboards to reports. Users can create logic once, store it on the server and reference it in real-time, instead of embedding it in documents isolated on a desktop or in a file share.
- Dynamic Text That Enhances Data Storytelling. BI Office makes storytelling easy through its dynamic text capabilities. Users can create data-driven text that changes based on rules they've created. This enables all business users to easily construct narratives that contextually interact with the data, turning it into information that leads to better decisions and smarter actions.
- Complete Analytics Platform. BI Office offers a full spectrum of self-service features to end users of all levels. With its intuitive interface and helpful wizards, BI Office encourages use where other products can often create obstacles. This usability includes advanced analytic capabilities, such as forecasting, clustering and predictive modeling that are accessible to users of all technical skill levels. With BI Office, business users gain exceptional agility without compromising governance and security.
"As a new company in the BARC Score, we are particularly excited to receive a high rating in the portfolio capabilities dimension, a rating that demonstrates how well a product meets customer needs," said Omri Kohl, co-founder and CEO of Pyramid Analytics. "This rating validates the hard work and dedication Pyramid Analytics has put in over the years to build the best analytics platform in the market."
