Business Intelligence Software Comparison Overview

The best Business Intelligence Software products are determined by customer satisfaction (based on user reviews) and scale (based on market share, vendor size, and social impact) and placed into four categories on the Grid:
  • Leaders offer business intelligence products that are rated highly by G2 Crowd users and have substantial scale, market share, and global support and service resources. Leaders include: Tableau Desktop, QlikView, Oracle BI, and TIBCO Spotfire
  • High Performers provide products that are highly rated by their users, but have not yet achieved the market share and scale of the vendors in the Leader category. High Performers include: Looker, Alteryx, InsightSquared, Domo, Chartio, and GoodData BI
  • Contenders have significant market presence and resources, but their products have received below average user satisfaction ratings or have not yet received a sufficient number of reviews to validate their products. Contenders include: SAS Business Intelligence, Hyperion, Business Objects, MicroStrategy, IBM Cognos, and Jaspersoft
  • Niche vendors do not have the market presence of the Leaders. They may have been rated positively on customer satisfaction, but have not yet received enough reviews to validate their success. Niche include: Pentaho, Logi Analytics, and Birst
