Best Analytics Platforms Software in 2020

Analytics platforms, sometimes known as business intelligence (BI) platforms, provide a tool set for businesses to absorb, organize, discover, and analyze data to reveal actionable insights that can help improve decision-making and inform business strategy. Some of these products require IT implementation to build the analytical environment, connect necessary data sources, and help prepare the data for usage; others are designed to be primarily configured and used by non-expert users, without the help of IT for deployment (known as self-service). Business and data analysts, data scientists, or other business stakeholders can utilize this software to prepare, model, and transform data to better understand the day-to-day performance of the company and inform decision-making.

Microsoft breaks through in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms

Today I’m thrilled to share that for the second year in a row, Microsoft has been positioned furthest to the right for completeness of vision within the Leaders quadrant of Gartner’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms – the 10th consecutive year Microsoft has been positioned as a leader.

Business intelligence platforms provide an architecture for businesses to analyze data and reveal actionable insights that can help improve decision-making and inform business strategy. Business intelligence platforms require IT implementation to build the analytical environment, connect necessary data sources, and help prepare the data for usage. Once this architecture is set up, data analysts and data scientists can utilize the platform to prepare, model, and transform business data to better understand the needs and performance of the company. To interact with the data and extract insights within a business intelligence platform, coding knowledge is necessary to build custom queries.

The insights pulled from a business intelligence platform can be used throughout an entire company, from marketing and sales to supply chain and finance. Business intelligence platforms have the ability to pull data from any source, including cloud applications, marketing automation tools, crm software, databases, file uploads, data warehouses, and unstructured
