2018 Gartner Critical Capabilities for Analytics and Business Intelligence

Gartner has just published the annual companion piece to their well-known Magic Quadrant. Called the Critical Capabilities for Analytics and Business Intelligence report, this publication leverages customer survey data and analyst insights to evaluate vendors’ products for 15 critical capabilities across 5 use cases.

The MicroStrategy platform received the highest overall score in 3 of the 5 use cases evaluated in the report. We feel that we also performed well in the other use cases, scoring 2nd and 4th overall out of the 22 BI vendors evaluated in the Garter 2018 Magic Quadrant for Analytics and Business Intelligence.

We believe these scores are indicative of our position as the sole Challenger in the Magic Quadrant, and are a direct result of our platform’s strength. Read this year’s complete report for more detail and to see how Gartner evaluates MicroStrategy and its competitors across each critical product capability.
