We’re honored to announce that Salesforce was rated the #1 Cloud Business Intelligence vendor by Dresner Advisory Services in their 2019 Cloud Computing and Business Intelligence (BI) Market Study.

The market report is part of Dresner’s Wisdom of Crowds® research series. This is the company’s eighth annual report examining deployment trends and attitudes toward cloud computing and business intelligence. The study is based on data collected on usage and deployment trends, products, and vendors. The vendor ratings assessed cloud BI features, cloud architecture, cloud security and web data connectors, as reported by users and weighted by user prioritization of capabilities.

“We are very grateful to the millions of Trailblazers who are leading the way in this new age of AI-augmented analytics,” said Ketan Karkhanis, SVP and GM of Einstein Analytics, Salesforce. “Our mission is to help everyone have the power of in-context actionable insights that drive better business outcomes, and we are excited to bring even more innovation in the coming months to the world's most complete business intelligence platform.”

The study also found that 48 percent of respondents say cloud BI is either “critical” or “very important.”

“We’ve been tracking and analyzing the cloud BI market since 2012 and have since seen increased adoption and a deeper understanding of the technology and benefits from business leaders,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory services. “We congratulate Salesforce on its top rating in this year’s cloud market study.”
