In the months since Gartner published the report in 2015, a lot in the industry has changed, and depending which end of the spectrum you are on; you could say it has evolved. Report highlights the major change that BI and Analytic platform is going through. For example - Vendors like Tableau and Qlik are gaining more because companies are increasingly adopting data-discovery and interactive-analysis platforms.
However, most of the companies seemed to have been clustered more into the middle of the quadrant, as Gartner predicts a fundamental shift in the BI and analytics market to be on the horizon.
Gartners report clubbed companies in four different quadrant:
Leaders, Visionaries, Challengers and Niche Players.
- Tableau, Qlik, Microsoft, MicroStrategy, Oracle ORCL, IBM, Information Builders, SAS and SAP are in the leaders’ quadrant.
- Birst, Logi Analytics are in the Challengers quadrant
- Alteryx, Tibco Software and Panorama Software are in the Visionaries Quadrant.
- Niche players include Board International, DataWatch, GoodData. OpenText, Salient Management Company, Targit, Pentaho, Prognoz, Pyramid Analytics and Yellowfin.

Gainers vs Losers comparing 2014 vs 2015 Magic Quadrant
- Big brothers IBM, SAS, SAP and Oracle have continued to tumble, as this represents the second-straight year Gartner has downgraded them on their diagram. Alteryx, Panorama, GoodData, and Pentaho all saw slight regression in their placement on the Magic Quadrant, while Actuate (now OpenText) was downgraded noticeably. TIBCO also fell from a comfortable spot in the “Leaders” quadrant to the top of the “Visionaries” cluster.
- The three clear winners are Pyramid Analytics, Logi Analytics, and Targit. Tableau, a BI solution that provides fast and easy visual analytics for data sets, is on a planet of their own, while Qlik and Microsoft have fallen back a bit, now finding themselves in the middle of the pack.
- Four names no longer appear on the graph are Infor, Arcplan, Bitam, and Jaspersoft (due to its acquisition by TIBCO).
- There is one new name; Datawatch.
