Board has been rated a Leader in Dresner’s 2018 Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Study.

Board, the leading Decision-Making platform which unifies Business Intelligence, Performance Management and Predictive Analytics, has been rated a Leader in Dresner’s 2018 Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Study. 

The annual study, a leading piece of business intelligence market research, uses 33 criteria to investigate users’ experiences with Business Intelligence (BI) vendors, providing insight for those looking to select a BI solution or benchmark their existing platform against the alternatives. Based on user feedback, Board was rated a “Technology Leader” in relation to Customer Experience and a “Trust Leader” in relation to Vendor Credibility, whilst also being given a perfect score in terms of users’ willingness to recommend the solution. 

The study also highlights that “better decision-making” is still the top objective for organizations in the use of BI tools, alongside improving operational efficiency, growth in revenues and the achievement of competitive advantage. This is particularly relevant given Board’s unified analysis, simulation and planning nature, which allows users to make better use of data for planning and forecasting within one solution. 

Board’s aim is to help businesses to make better decisions, so it is fantastic to see that this reflects industry’s desire for continuous improvement,” said Giovanni Grossi, CEO of Board International. “I am delighted that our customers see Board as a trustworthy, technologically advanced tool which is worthy of recommendation to their peers.”
