Annual Report From Dresner Advisory Services Highlights Visible Gains in Cloud BI Importance and Usage

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwired - Apr 30, 2014) - Dresner Advisory Services today published the 2014 Wisdom of Crowds® Cloud Business Intelligence Market Study. The 3rd annual report examines deployment trends and user sentiment for cloud business intelligence (BI), defined as the tools, technologies, and services deployed by one or more cloud deployment models.

According to the 2014 study, the percentage of enterprises currently using public cloud BI increased by more than 17 percent since last year and by more than 53 percent since 2012. Currently, small organizations report the highest existing and planned adoption for 2014.

"These are exciting times for those organizations looking for some certainty and acceptance in the cloud BI space. Through the three years we've been examining this segment, cloud BI shows consistent visible gains in all positive levels of importance, and more than 75 percent of respondents consider cloud BI models at least somewhat important," said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer for Dresner Advisory Services.

"We are also pleased to notice a good alignment between user requirements and industry support, which is another indicator of a market moving along the maturity curve to increased acceptance and deployment," continued Mr. Dresner.

The 2014 Cloud BI Market Study builds on the previous two years' of research to include year-over-year comparisons as well as a number of new analyses, to provide a valuable tool for organizations evaluating and investing in cloud-based BI products and services.

The Wisdom of Crowds Cloud Business Intelligence Market Study is based on primary research conducted in February and March 2014. A wide range of BI users and implementers from around the world contributed via an online survey to gauge their current usage as well as intended deployment strategies for Cloud BI capabilities.
