NASHUA, NH--(Marketwired - Jun 5, 2013) - Dresner Advisory Services today released the 4th annual Wisdom of Crowds® Business Intelligence Market Study Buyers' Guide Edition.

The Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Study was developed to provide a real-world look at the state of the business intelligence market. The 2013 report builds on previous years' research and includes an expanded user trend section -- covering targeted roles, drivers, and overall penetration of BI within organizations.

The exclusive special Buyers' Guide edition has 124 pages of in-depth market analysis with 80 charts and tables, 23 vendor rankings and a 17-page buyers' guide -- to compare and contrast 19 different vendor-supported BI features, across traditional, cloud and mobile platforms.

"Our annual BI study goes far more in depth than other market reports, providing both a multi-dimensional analysis of vendors as well as an invaluable front-line perspective on deployment and usage," said Howard Dresner, Chief Research Officer of Dresner Advisory Services. "Our research provides a unique look into critical factors such as an organization's aspirations for their BI deployment, the functions driving BI, and the overall satisfaction with current BI tools, thus enabling readers to understand the nature and rate of change in the market and to better determine what is real and what is hype."

"With the Buyers' Guide edition, we go a step further to enable readers to easily perform a side-by-side comparison of various BI vendors," added Dresner. "We make it easy for organizations to sift through various product capabilities available on the market to streamline the process of selecting a BI solution."

The annual Wisdom of Crowds BI study is based on data collected on usage and deployment trends, products, and vendors. BI users in all roles and throughout all industries contribute to provide a complete view of realities, plans, and perceptions of the BI market. This year's study is based on input from more than 1,100 BI users worldwide.
