2012 Gartner Magic Quadrant Released (aka Smuggled)
It’s that time of year again; the Gartner Magic BI Quadrant is out. Like children expectantly awaiting Christmas the BI vendors await its publication; where will they be, will they be up, down, left or right, will they have been dropped altogether!!! Personally I don’t give this piece of ‘Magic’ (am I missing the ‘Magic’; does it do something amazing if you look at it under UV light or at 19:36 on a moonlit night?) much credence and feel it carries far too much weight in forming opinion within the industry but I guess people need some sort of guidance to navigate the BI space.
Anyhue; I’ve done my usual thing and created a version of the Magic Quadrant in Qlikview and generated the displayed images; I’ll post the entire application as soon as access allows. I’ve also included data for the previous 4 Magic Quadrants that allows us to see how various vendors have moved overtime, the QlikTech track is attached.
The 2012 data is taken from the below photo smuggled out of this weeks ‘Gartner 2012 Business Intelligence Summit’ (‘Summit’ – really?) in London but I expect the official report to be released (and spun by every vendor) in the coming days.
It will be interesting to see what QlikTech’s take on it is…no doubt there’ll be a Blog post from Erica Driver shortly (http://community.qlikview.com/blogs).
