The perceived importance of data and analytics in the cloud is at an all-time high, according to Dresner Adivsory Services' latest report, with 54 percent of respondents saying that "cloud BI is either critical or very important." That's an all-time over the course of the survey's nine years
As the leader in data in analytics, we believe in this sentiment, which is why we're consistently investing in our cloud capabilities, presence, and relationships, such as the one we share with Amazon Web Services.
If you're contemplating moving to the cloud, or want to do more there, the new report contains a wealth of other great information, including a listing of top vendors – on which we're proud to be ranked third-highest. In rating the vendors, Dresner considered cloud BI features, cloud architecture, cloud security, and web data connectors. Other vendors include Domo, Microsoft, SAS, and Tableau Software.
