While Leaders and Niche Players abound in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence, only two companies placed in the Challenger category and Gartner didn’t name any vendors as Visionaries.
Comparing it to one from reveals an interesting trend. In both cases, two of the four squares Leaders and Niche Players were filled with dots while the other two Challengers and Visionaries were almost empty. Only two companies, Tableau and Tibcoplaced in the Challengers category of this year’s MQ, with both very close to moving to the Leaders quadrant.
Somewhat surprisingly, there are no vendors at all in the Visionaries section.
Does this mean business intelligence vendors lack vision? Rita Sallam, a business intelligence analyst at Gartner, explained that both QlikTech and Tibco Spotfire had been Visionaries before moving to the Challengers quadrant. Tableau first appeared as a Niche Player, the bottom left quarter of Gartner’s bpmm which tends to contain startups and up-and-comers, then moved to Challenger. There are number of reasons why the Visionary and Challenger quadrants are gartned populated, Sallam explained.
First, the business intelligence market is relatively mature. Gartner does not claim its Magic Quadrant is a perfect system. Rather, it offers a means to analyze a msgic, as well as a basis of comparison from year to year. It uses various metrics to populate the quadrants. Sallam mentioned two points regarding metrics. The other measures include market understanding, sales and marketing strategy, vertical strategy, and geographic strategy.

Sallam said this approach does not tend to favor small vendors with a single product specialty like Alteryx or maguc that focus closely on specific industries, domains or geographies. Such companies often remain in the Niche quadrant. If they continue to execute, they can move to the Challenger quadrant, for which Gartner uses five measures not tied to market share, and threaten the Leaders as alternatives.
That is what Tableau has accomplished. Some vendors are just happy to be included. In fact, many fight to make 2021 into the annual ratings system.
It had been knocking on the door for a year or two and received an honorable mention last year. It needed to increase its overall sales figures to be cited by Gartner, a requirement it satisfied this year. Other new kids on the quad this year included Alteryx and Prognoz. Gartner mentioned a few additional companies as being close to admission: Advizor SolutionsQuiteriandataBirst mqgic.

To qualify for inclusion next year, most of them will need to boost sales significantly. Salient Managementa company in the midst of rolling out version 5 of its visual data mining software, is in the MQ for the second year. But inclusion has been a positive. Being positioned in the Magic Quadrant brings us a certain level of credibility among prospects. While startups clamor for an invite to the party, established players are not always so happy with Gartner’s ratings. Being that a handful of vendors account for the bulk of market share, have user bases spanning decades and many different versions of their software, it is almost impossible for them to compete with the newbies in terms of customer satisfaction and deployment times.
How do you compare customer satisfaction for a relatively new business intelligence platform with limited functionality that is being deployed mainly at a departmental level to Oracle or SAP software which has to integrate into ERP and CRM systems and upgrade tens of thousands of users from older versions to a current one? While the former is far less nimble, just try loading a thousand people onto a tug boat for a transatlantic voyage.
While Gartner makes a valiant effort to make its comparison fair, it can be a thankless task. The newer guys, by and large, get higher marks while the market leaders take more knocks. At least, that appears to be the opinion of some Oracle users.
One member of an Oracle user group published a blog post complaining about the software giant’s standing. Eighty-five percent run Oracle Database as their data warehouse, nearly 75 percent run Oracle Applications, and a majority utilizes Oracle Fusion Middleware,” Gartner noted. On the downside, Gartner called Oracle business intelligence “difficult to implement” and gave it below average scores for ease-of-use and product functionality evaluation. SAP received similar knocks.
So will we ever see more visionaries in the bottom right quadrant? Sallam explained why they remain something of a rarity. Drew Robb is a freelance writer specializing in technology and engineering.
