Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms 2012

As always, very informative report from Gartner analysing the BI vendors, tools and market. Highly recommended for anyone in BI world.

For me the highlights are:

Business vs. IT Driven BI. The conflict remains the same as before: business users demand easy to use, flexible products that put analytic power into their own hands, against IT's desire to maintain standards and create a supportable BI environment with predictable performance and quality data.

There are also other important features in this report, mostly around data discovery tools, Mobile BI, collaborative decision-making, new use cases and content types (real-time, big data, etc.), removing complexity, cloud services, predictive analytics, etc.
