Infor Business Intelligence (BI) was selected as a Leader in the 2014 Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Study by Dresner Advisory Services.
For the second year in a row, Infor is positioned as a leader in Titan market segment, which encompasses the largest vendors with extensive product and service offerings. According to the report, Infor exceeds peer averages for virtually all measures and improved its performance since 2013 in sales, value, technical support, consulting, and integrity.
The report evaluates vendors based on seven categories including sales/acquisition experience, value for price paid, quality and usefulness of product, quality of technical support, quality and value of consulting, integrity, and whether the vendor is recommended. Vendors were ranked on a five-point scale using 33 criteria.
"In 2014, dashboards, end-user self-service, data warehousing, and advanced visualization lead the list of technologies and initiatives strategic to business intelligence, which represent an ongoing emphasis on fundamental and traditional functionality," said Howard Dresner, chief research officer, Dresner Advisory Services.
