OLAP Survey Says... ? Insight on 13 BI Products

Microstrategy is circulating The OLAP Survey 6, a customer-satisfaction-oriented report conducted annually by Nigel Pendse and Survey.com. The survey is billed (by the publishers) as "the most comprehensive independent survey of the on-line analytical processing and business intelligence market."

As explained last week, when a third-party report makes a vendor look good, they tend to share it with as many people as possible. That's why Business Objects and SAS are offering downloads of the latest Garner BI Magic Quadrant through their sites. This week, Microstrategy is circulating The OLAP Survey 6, a customer-satisfaction-oriented report conducted annually by Nigel Pendse and Survey.com. This year's survey involved 1,679 organizations across 87 countries and it's billed (by the publishers) as "the most comprehensive independent survey of the on-line analytical processing and business intelligence market."Of course the results make Microstrategy look good (or they wouldn't be sharing it), but the survey also provides what's billed as "statistically significant" insight on 12 other BI products, including Applix TM1, Business Objects WebIntelligence or Desktop Intelligence, Cognos Analysis (Cognos 8 or PowerPlay), Hyperion Essbase, Microsoft Analysis Services, MIK OLAP, MIS Alea or DecisionWare, Oracle Discoverer, Oracle 9i/10g OLAP Option, Orenburg Board MIT, OutlookSoft and SAP BW.Microstrategy is circulating The OLAP Survey 6, a customer-satisfaction-oriented report conducted annually by Nigel Pendse and Survey.com.
