NASHUA, NH--(Marketwired - Jul 8, 2013) - Dresner Advisory Services today released the 2nd annual Wisdom of Crowds ® Cloud Business Intelligence Market Study.

The Wisdom of Crowds Cloud Business Intelligence Market Study was developed to provide a real-world look at the awareness and adoption of cloud-based deployment of BI software solutions through public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. It covers user interest in and perceived benefits and concerns with BI delivered as a service, and includes a vendor product assessment and buyer's guide.

The 2013 report builds upon the 2012 edition to include year-over-year comparisons as well as a number of wholly new analyses. It ranks 13 leading Cloud BI vendors and includes a buyers' guide to enable organizations to compare and contrast 38 different vendor-supported Cloud BI features addressing user requirements for functionality, architecture, and security.

"Cloud Business Intelligence continues to gain ground, becoming more main stream all the time," said Howard Dresner, Founder and Chief Research Officer at Dresner Advisory Services. "Organizations must plan for its inevitability, and our latest report can help them through that process of understanding the options and selecting a technology solution."

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