SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Oct 19, 2015) -  Pyramid Analytics, the next-generation business intelligence (BI) platform for the enterprise, announced top rankings in BARC's 2015 BI Survey. The survey, which incorporates the responses of thousands of real customers ranked Pyramid Analytics #1 in Self Service amongst mid-size deployments (EMEA, Americas). Pyramid Analytics' user-friendly, governed data discovery and business intelligence platform was ranked as a leading vendor for mid-sized deployments (EMEA, Americas) in areas that demonstrate the platform's value, performance, data volume, data discovery/visualization capabilities, agility and flexibility for users.

BARC's BI Survey 15 is based on findings from the world's largest and most comprehensive survey of business intelligence end-users, conducted earlier this year. In total, 3,267 people responded to The Survey with 2,414 answering a series of detailed questions about their usage of a named product. Altogether, 35 products (or groups of products) are analyzed in detail.

Pyramid Analytics brings to market the ease of use and the agility and flexibility that users demand, with the governance, scalability, and performance that enterprises need. It was designed from the ground up to be a high performance governed data discovery platform.

"Pyramid's #1 rank in Self Service and very high rank in Data Discovery for mid-size deployments shows they are a force to reckon with in the agile / data discovery space," says Carsten Bange, Founder and CEO of BARC. "However, when you combine this with their high ranking in KPIs such as Seats per Admin, Chosen as a Standard, Data Volume and Price to Value Perception, it shows that Pyramid's approach to bring enterprise capabilities like governance to the data discovery space is well regarded by its users," adds Bange.

Pyramid offers significant value and performance, reflected in the good user ratings for price-to-value perception and performance satisfaction. 

"We designed the Pyramid Analytics platform from the ground up to address functionality gaps left by desktop-based data discovery tools. Users found self-service data discovery tools extremely compelling, but realized that these tools were creating data silos of conflicting data and limiting their ability to scale," says Omri Kohl, co-founder and CEO of Pyramid Analytics. Kohl adds, "Customers adopt Pyramid because we offer a platform that is easy to use, flexible, functionality-rich, but that is also governable, scalable and collaborative."
