Independent Research Firm Recognizes GoodData as a Leader in Enterprise BI Platforms With Majority Cloud Deployments

San Francisco, California, UNITED STATES

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GoodData announced today that it has been named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise BI Platforms With Majority Cloud Deployments, Q3 2017, earning the highest-possible scores in five of the report’s criteria.

“We are honored by this recognition, and we thank Forrester for inviting us to participate,” says GoodData CEO Roman Stanek. “I believe it affirms both the shift to cloud analytics and GoodData’s leadership in cloud-based business intelligence (BI).”

The study involved a 22-criteria evaluation of 10 enterprise BI platforms offered by majority cloud-deployment providers, some of whom also offer on-premises options. “This report shows how each provider measures up,” Forrester notes in the report’s introduction, “and helps application and development (AD&D) pros working on BI initiatives make the right choice.”

GoodData was recognized as a Leader in the evaluation, having earned the highest-possible rating — 5 out of 5 — in five criteria:

  • Cross-product integration
  • Full BI stack
  • Text mining
  • Focus on BI
  • Focus on SaaS/cloud

“This report is the best market perspective on business intelligence that I’ve ever seen,” says Stanek, “and I commend Forrester for distinguishing cloud and on-prem providers. It makes the report that much more impactful, because they’re comparing like with like.”

Having built a strong reputation as a pioneer in business intelligence, GoodData is looking to the future of analytics. As cited in the Forrester Wave: Enterprise BI Platforms With Majority Cloud Deployments, Q3 2017, “Investments in advanced analytics and natural language capabilities, combined with a focus on smart business applications, are helping GoodData take existing functions to the next level.” 

GoodData is leveraging machine learning and automation and received recognition in the recent insights PaaS evaluation, The Forrester Wave™: Insight Platforms-As-A-Service, Q3 2017, as an insights-as-a-service provider.
