The BI Survey 13 is based on findings from the world’s largest and most comprehensive survey of business intelligence end-users, conducted earlier this year. In total, 3,149 people responded to The Survey with 2,298 answering a series of detailed questions about their usage of a named product. Altogether, 30 products or groups of products received a detailed analysis.
The BI Survey 13 examines BI product selection and usage among users in areas including business benefits, costs, proportion of employees using the product, competitiveness, recommendation, innovation, performance, customer satisfaction and agility.
One thing that all BI deployments ought to have in common is that they should deliver business benefits. We asked several questions that helped us measure how successful respondents’ deployments had been. The combined results were then used as a calibration tool that is widely used throughout The Survey to assess the correlation between many factors and project success.
