Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms. Analyst(s): Rita L. Sallam, Bill Hostmann, Kurt Schlegel, Joao Tapadinhas, Josh Parenteau, Thomas W. Oestreich Figure 1. Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms Source: Gartner (February 2015) Overview of Magic Quadrant Positioning The vendors' positions in this Magic Quadrant reflect the current market transition. The year 2014 has been another year of challenging execution for the market share leaders in the BI and analytics market, juxtaposed against strong execution by the data discovery vendors that are satisfying customers, meeting their buying requirements and delivering greater business value. The current BI and analytics market situation looks similar to the mainframe/workstation market in the late 1980s, which had a complete shift in requirements and buyers.

While data discovery platforms predominantly complement IT-centric systems-of-record deployments, they are being used for much of the new analytics project investments. Vendor Strengths and Cautions.

The idea is that cartography is, to us, a very personal and artistic undertaking. When we make a map for a client, we strive to ensure the end result is tailor-made to reflect them and their needs. And then we got to thinking - what if we made maps that reflected our interpretations of space and our experiences with landscapes? Or better yet - what if you did? From Feb. 14th to June 1st we'll be accepting artists' submissions of original interpretations of Iowa maps. We will judge submissions and select 6 winning designs.

Artists whose designs are chosen as the top 6 designs will receive $50. Additional proceeds will be donated. Winners will be contacted and announced to the public on June 14th. +Artists interested in submitting original works to the contest should review the waiver. BI Leadership Forum.
