For Microsoft, 13 is a lucky number.
2020 makes 13 years in a row that Microsoft has been named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence Platforms. In the latest report Microsoft is clearly positioned at the top of 22 vendors as not only a platform that is growing in tremendous leaps and bounds, but as a visionary company with a clear path forward.
It’s also the second year in a row Microsoft leads the pack in both their completeness of vision and the ability to execute among leaders, according to Gartner.
Since launching five years ago, Power BI has become available in 43 languages and deployed in 40 datacenters around the world, Microsoft reported. Over 97 percent of Fortune 500 companies use Power BI, with 200,000 customers around the world who use 40 petabytes of data every month on a safe and secure platform.
Gartner’s report stated that:
Microsoft continues to invest in a broad set of visionary capabilities and to integrate them with Power BI. This aligns well with the openness, consumerization and automation trends identified by Gartner as key market drivers.
Power BI enables eLogic’s own manufacturing customers to gain valuable insights easily through an integrated platform that is both cost-effective and business driven.
Demand forecasting, capacity planning, KPI's brought to the forefront where executives are able to act quickly and decisively, all featured in PowerBI. VP's are given the ability to track their sales teams' win rate in real-time. Account managers are able to close opportunities faster than the competition. Instead of looking at three screens PowerBI only needs one, and combined with eLogic's expertise exposes insights that keep our customers a step ahead.
