Gartner recently released their annual BI Magic Quadrant, which shows the top players in the BI space and ranks them in relation to each other. InterWorks partner Tableau Software is perennially in the Leader category, and this year is no exception. In fact, both Tableau and Microsoft Power BI greatly outpaced others in the market. You can get the full report from Tableau here.
Rankings Over Time in Tableau
While the Magic Quadrant does a good job of evaluating platforms on their ability to execute and their completion of vision, it’s important to take any rankings with a grain of salt. It’s also important to take into account ranking history over multiple years. This inspired me to use Tableau to create a dashboard showing the history of BI Magic Quadrant rankings for the past seven years. You can explore the dashboard below. Be sure to click through the different tabs to see the rankings broken down in different ways.
