Dresner Advisory Services Names 2021 Industry Excellence Award Winners

NASHUA, N.H., July 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dresner Advisory Services today announced its 2021 Industry Excellence Award winners. The annual awards acknowledge vendors who have achieved a leadership position in the company’s 2021 Wisdom of Crowds Analytical Data Infrastructure (ADI), Business Intelligence (BI), and/or Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Flagship Market Studies.

The reports are based on data collected from end users and provide a broad assessment of each market including current usage, key drivers, technology priorities, and future intentions, as well as performance ratings of relevant vendors.

The Dresner Advisory Services Industry Excellence Awards winners have achieved leadership status in the industry-rating models included in each research report. The Customer Experience model considers the real-world experience of customers as they work with a vendor’s technology solution on a daily basis, plotting the various customer touch points against sentiment surrounding product and technology. The Vendor Credibility Model considers a vendor’s relationship with customers, plotting perceived value for price paid against a calculated “confidence” score.

“Our annual body of research provides in-depth look at user trends and intentions in the well-established markets of ADI, BI, and EPM, as well as a robust industry section examining current offerings from leading suppliers in these areas,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “Our awards highlight those suppliers with the most complete solutions in their technology area, as rated by their end users. We congratulate this year’s Industry Excellence winners on receiving top marks from their customers.”
