NASHUA, NH--(Marketwired - Sep 16, 2013) - Dresner Advisory Services today released the 2013 Wisdom of Crowds® Collaborative Business Intelligence Market Study. The report provides a real-world perspective on the Collaborative Business Intelligence (BI) market, providing insight from the users' standpoint on the importance and adoption of collaborative BI technologies.

"Enabling employees to collaborate with BI insights remains a hot area for organizations today," said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. "Providing this capability within BI solutions enables users to more readily leverage scarce resources, focus upon decision-making activities, and better align with the strategy of the organization."

The new report builds upon the 2012 edition to include year-over-year comparisons as well as several completely new analyses. It ranks 13 leading Collaborative BI vendors and includes a buyers' guide to enable organizations to analyze 17 different vendor-supported criteria addressing user requirements for core and extended Collaborative BI features.

"More than half the respondents indicated that extended collaborative features for business intelligence were critical or very important. Users were particularly interested in referencing and searching BI content from a collaboration platform, and analyzing and auditing decision processes," continued Dresner.

The Wisdom of Crowds Collaborative BI study was based on data collected on usage and deployment trends, products, and vendors. 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. To license a copy, visit
