SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - May 3, 2016) - Pyramid Analytics, a leading global provider of enterprise business intelligence (BI) software, is pleased to announce their #1 ranking (out of 22 vendors) in the 2016 inaugural analyst study, Collective Insights™ Market Study* from Dresner Advisory Services. The Collective Insights™ report is an industry-leading global analysis of collaborative business intelligence including criteria for user and content governance. Scoring was based upon Dresner's proprietary vendor performance measurement system. This study helps consumers of business intelligence technology determine vendor fit with organizational requirements. Pyramid Analytics BI Office is recognized for the strength of its collaborative BI capabilities, which combines governed data discovery, data storytelling and integration with enterprise collaboration frameworks.

"Being recognized as the leader in this premier industry report, combined with our fast-growing global user base, validates Pyramid Analytics' BI Office analytics platform as a solution of choice for enterprises ready to compete and thrive as data-driven organizations," said Omri Kohl, CEO and co-founder of Pyramid Analytics. "We are proud to be acknowledged for providing an analytics platform designed for collaboration, thus enabling stakeholders to gain the visibility they need to make better decisions."

"This report examines the confluence of two related and complementary disciplines -- BI collaboration and user and content governance -- both identified as extraordinarily important to more than 90 percent of our research respondents," said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. "We congratulate Pyramid Analytics on their top industry ranking in this year's report."

Pyramid Analytics' ranking establishes BI Office as offering amongst the strongest capabilities across the following critical areas:

  • Collaboration: Annotating, sharing, ranking, and maintaining discussion threads around content.
  • Governance: Data lineage, versioning, sign-on, defined levels of access, usage tracking, and the ability to certify official data sources.
  • Data Storytelling: Author highlighting, navigational aids, user interactions, and author-defined flows.
  • Integration with Enterprise Collaboration Frameworks: Support for Yammer, Jive, and Chatter

As a complete analytics platform balancing self-serve analytics with centralized governance, BI Office brings optimized collaboration to the enterprise. This collaboration, across datasets and reports, is more than sharing content, context, and one source of truth. It includes reusing business logic (custom calculations and sets) to drive consistency throughout the organization. Across all functional areas and analytic workflows, BI Office enables individuals -- from power users, knowledge workers and decision makers -- the ability to make smarter data-driven decisions together.
