Re: Should I move myself from Business Intelligence to Business Analytics
If you want greater career and compensation potential, I would move into analytics. That may require more schooling and experience, but there's more career potential, including moves into big data analysis and data science.

Re: Omissions?
I think they've got everybody who is anybody here (with a North American bias), but by including Infor, an enterprise applications vendor, Gartner kind of opened a door to others in that category. Why not include Epicor or Workday, both of which have embedded business intelligence capabilities? This is a fine line to cross, but more coverage is better.

Omissions?
Doug, was any company left out that you think should have been included?

Analytics versus advanced analytics?
Gartner published a seperate quadrant this year for "Advanced Analytics Platforms," which covers "prescriptive and predictive modeling, forecasting, simulation and optimization." The BI report covered above, in contrast, addresses business intelligence reporting, dashboarding and discovery as well as analysis, forecasting, and optimization. In other words, not-so-advanced analytics. Basics like simple trend analysis that projects forward a bit based on historical data rather than doing complex modeling of factors such as seasonality, pricing variables and so on.


We plan to cover that Advanced Analytics quadrant later this week.
