MELBOURNE, Australia, May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Principal Analyst in Gartner's Technology & Service Provider Research Group, Dan Sommer, has pinpointed global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics software vendor Yellowfin as a pioneer in Collaborative BI.

Speaking at Gartner's recent Las Vegas Business Intelligence & Analytics Summit, held across 31 March – 2 April 2014, Sommer said that many BI and analytics vendors were looking to roll out new collaborative features – specifically Storyboarding or, as Sommer described it, "PowerPoint for BI."

"It's a major piece that all vendors are chasing right now," said Sommer. "[In this regard], Yellowfin is an early pioneer."

Yellowfin CEO Glen Rabie said that such industry recognition aligned with Yellowfin's marketplace positioning.

"Collaborative BI has always been a focus for Yellowfin," said Rabie. "It's fantastic to be acknowledged as a leader in collaborative innovation by independent industry thought leaders like Gartner. We know that as more organizations continue to deliver reporting and analytics capabilities to a wider user base, throughout the enterprise, the ability to assist those people to take collective data-based action will become increasingly important."

Sommer's comments were made as he addressed, what he dubbed, a "best of times" moment and "worst of times" battle within the BI and analytics market.

Sommer said that the market was undergoing significant growth and transition as BI and analytics is pushed into the mainstream, and away from its IT-centric roots, into "the business."

Sommer said that the continued emergence of new nimble "start-ups," coinciding with this marked growth, was causing significant disruption to the BI industry by delivering new consumer-oriented functionality. 

This new approach, engineered to tap into the popularization and subsequent consumerization of BI, is capable of supporting pervasive enterprise-wide reporting and analytics implementations. Consequently, traditional BI players are scrambling to re-engineer their products and re-position their market stance to avoid being left in the dust.
