NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2012) - Dresner Advisory Services today released two new reports covering Cloud and Collaborative Business Intelligence (BI). The 2012 Wisdom of Crowds™ Cloud Business Intelligence Market Study® and the 2012 Wisdom of Crowds™ Collaborative Business Intelligence Market Study® offer insights on two of the hottest emerging topics surrounding business intelligence (BI) deployment and information sharing today.
The Wisdom of Crowds Collaborative Business Intelligence Market Study was developed to better understand how organizations currently collaborate with BI, and their future plans to do so. It addresses a number of vendor products that offer core and "extended" collaborative capabilities.
The Wisdom of Crowds Cloud Business Intelligence Market Study investigates the interest in and adoption of cloud-based deployment of BI software through public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. It covers user interest in and perceived benefits and concerns with BI delivered as a service and includes a vendor product assessment.
"Our new Cloud BI and Collaborative BI Studies go into more depth than other market reports, providing both a multi-dimensional analysis of vendors as well as a user-perspective on deployment and usage," said Howard Dresner, Chief Research Officer of Dresner Advisory Services. "The comprehensive research helps readers understand the nature and rate of change in the BI market and determine what is real and what is hype."
The new Cloud BI and Collaborative BI studies complement the 2012 Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Study, an annual examination of the state of the business intelligence (BI) marketplace. The annual Wisdom of Crowds BI study is based on data collected on usage and deployment trends, products, and vendors. BI users in all roles and throughout all industries contribute to provide a complete view of realities, plans, and perceptions of the BI market.
The company is also introducing new methods of accessing electronic and hard copies of this year's studies to broaden distribution of the research. This year the Dresner Advisory Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence suite of market research is available for purchase through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and Apple iTunes.
"We want our studies to reach as many decision makers as possible," continued Dresner. "While other analyst organizations may charge thousands for their research and require a subscription, our goal is to make our research both highly available and highly affordable."
Dresner Advisory will be hosting a free webinar on Thursday, September 27, at 12PM ET to review highlights from the groundbreaking Cloud BI and Collaborative BI research. Attendance is limited to 100 people so register today.
