You can pore over expert product reviews, watch countless demos, and test free trials
on your own data until the cows come home, but in the end, you can’t truly comprehend the ins and outs of a particular BI and analytics solution without hearing from those users who have been working with the solution long term. BARC The BI Survey
was created to solve that problem.
BARC spends months each year collecting opinions from BI users from around the world to see how the industry’s products compare to one another in real-life, everyday scenarios. It is the largest and most comprehensive survey of business intelligence users in the world.
BARC interviewed over 3,000 people using 36 different BI products for the 2018 survey. The results are in and we’re once again very happy with how TARGIT users interact with and feel about the product. Drum roll, please … Out of those 36 products, TARGIT was a leading vendor in 16 categories and the No. 1 vendor for mobile BI against its peers in the OLAP analysis-focused products peer group.

The key takeaway of this year’s user results? TARGIT is really good at providing BI and analytics to a wide range of users throughout the entire enterprise.
