SAN MATEO, CA, August 3, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Today, Dresner Advisory Services announced their annual 2017 Industry Excellence Awards to acknowledge vendors who have achieved a leadership position in the company’s 2017 Wisdom of Crowds® Business Intelligence Market Study (BI) and/or Enterprise Planning Market Studies. The reports are based on data collected from end users and provide a real-world perspective on the BI and planning markets.
Zoomdata, developers of the world's fastest visual analytics platform for Big Data, was named an overall leader in both the Customer Experience and Vendor Credibility models. The annual report is the company's broad assessment of the business intelligence (BI) market, examining key user trends, attitudes, and three-year plans. Zoomdata is offering a complimentary copy of the full report.
“The Dresner Advisory Services Industry Excellence Awards go to vendors who achieved high rankings in the Customer Experience and Vendor Credibility market models included in the annual flagship BI and Planning reports," said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “The Customer Experience model considers the real-world experience of customers working with vendors’ technology solutions on a daily basis, plotting touch points – sales and service – against customer sentiment surrounding product and technology. The Vendor Credibility Model considers a vendor’s relationship with customers, plotting value for price paid against a “confidence” score comprised of integrity and recommend measures.”
The study comes as Zoomdata is seeing rapid growth. The company’s market traction and technology innovations have garnered widespread recognition. Zoomdata received the Top Ranking in the 2016 Annual Big Data Analytics Market Study from Dresner Advisory Services, debuted in the visionary quadrant in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms and Gartner also named Zoomdata a 2016 Cool Vendor. In addition, the company was granted the Ventana Research 2016 Technology Innovation Award for Operational Intelligence.
“Dresner’s annual reports are a fantastic view into a very complex industry. We’re honored that every one of our customers surveyed in this report would recommend Zoomdata to their peers,” said Justin Langseth, CEO of Zoomdata. “The results are a testament to the fact that customers are moving beyond their legacy BI tools to embrace a new paradigm for analytics. Today customers want modern, easily configured, embeddable, personalized BI that really works on modern big and fast data sources, and Zoomdata is committed to meeting these new market requirements for success.”
