"Being recognized as the leader in this key industry report and our growing user base corroborates that Pyramid Analytics governed BI platform is the BI solution of choice for large enterprises," stated Avi Perez, CTO, Pyramid Analytics. "The very nature of our platform offers a framework for collaboration across the enterprise that supports the need to engage all stakeholders in growing their business. Combining the best of ease of use and enterprise governance has propelled Pyramid ahead of legacy mega vendors and restrictive desktop tools that start and stop with static reports and social networking. That is not holistic, not true BI collaboration."

Pyramid Analytics' combined Collaborative BI capabilities differentiate it from others:

  • Shareable content and business logic are highly modular, while remaining secured. User credentials determine ability to access and share content system-wide. Self-service combined with report scalability boosts personal productivity and cooperative business outcomes
  • Server-centric, centralized data modelling that stays secured, yet self-serviced for collaboration and instant sharing -- foundation to combine governance and innovation in analytics
  • Analytic narratives built via dashboards and publisher modules. It's easy and fast for users to produce simple, moderate, or complex forms of storytelling via interactive dashboards and by 'pushing BI' via publisher module
  • Mobile BI makes all content securely accessible on any device. Individuals enjoy freedom to collaborate from anywhere, within framework for controlled access
  • Investments in social networking capabilities for reporting and analytics can enable collaborative commentary and foundation for annotation in secured fashion

"Organizations are looking for Collaborative BI capabilities for improved data-sharing, cooperation, and ultimately better business outcomes," said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. "The 2015 Collaborative Computing and Business Intelligence Market Study is based on a survey of a rich cross-section of BI customers and an evaluation of vendors' technology, and we congratulate Pyramid Analytics on their leadership position in this year's study."

Pyramid Analytics combines governance and innovation providing both centralized and delegated secure access to data with individual BI capability that does not require IT involvement.
