In its latest Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms, Information technology research and advisory firm Gartner has identified a significant shift in the market. The traditional, IT-centric leaders in BI “are being disrupted by platforms that expand access to analytics and deliver higher business value.” Metapraxis is well placed to respond to this shift with our Empower EPM software suite.
Gartner reports that most IT-driven centralised BI deployments are being used very narrowly, most often for production reporting. The growing requirement from business users for fast time business benefits, ease of use and the ability for users to conduct more complex analysis for themselves are not being well met by the traditional BI market share leaders, such as Oracle, IBM and SAP.
It goes on to say that “business-centric platforms such as Tableau, Qlik and other emerging vendors have a more narrow set of capabilities, but are used more broadly for a range of BI and analytics functions – including for reporting, for which they are not optimally suited, and for expanding use cases – primarily because they are easy to use and deploy”.
Metapraxis Empower has been specifically designed to fill the gap between these two extremes in analytic platform. It enables business benefit to be realised rapidly by providing a complete visual planning and analysis solution that can be deployed very rapidly. This solution includes comprehensive reporting facilities as well as equipping business users to create their own guided, interactive analysis.
