3 Years and Power BI is Still on Top!

Power BI outranks every business intelligence and analytics platform available on the market - again.  

Garnter just released its 2018 Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms, and for the third consecutive year, Microsoft stands alone for Completeness of Vision.  Here’s why.  Microsoft is outpacing the market in development, continuing their monthly release that started when Power BI launched in 2015. Those monthly releases aren’t token, they’re a non-stop flood of new and better functionality for transforming your organization through data.Gartner Quadrant 2018.png

It’s an exciting achievement for Microsoft but it’s also not surprising, for two reasons.  First, the Power BI team at Microsoft has been uncompromisingly committed to an agile model developing in short sprints and translating feedback from the 200,000+ member Power BI community into new feature sets.  Second, their value proposition to companies is simple and scalable: provide high-value self-service analytics to anyone who knows how to use Excel.  Power BI Desktop is free, and can be easily scaled to an enterprise BI solution for a low monthly cost. 

Read what Microsoft has to say about their quadrant ranking, or read the full report from Gartner – straight from the horse’s mouth.
