Visionary: Logi Analytics
Products: Logi Analytics' BI platform is composed of Logi Info, Logi Vision and DataHub. For the Magic Quadrant, Gartner evaluated the combination of the three. Gartner’s take: “Logi Analytics is positioned in the Visionaries quadrant this year. Like other vendors, it was affected by the establishment of a new, modern BI and analytics platform definition — given its historical focus on embedded analytics for IT developers.
Products: IBM accounts for a significant percentage of overall BI market with its large installed base of Cognos BI customers. Due to the firm’s shift in focus to business-user-centric platforms, for this Magic Quadrant Gartner focused on Watson Analytics. Gartner’s take: “IBM's position on the Magic Quadrant was significantly affected by our modernization of the BI and analytics platform definition this year, given its long-standing dependency on Cognos. As a result of the platform definition update, IBM is positioned in the middle of the Visionaries quadrant this year.”
Visionary: ClearStory Data
Products: ClearStory is a cloud-based and Spark-based platform enabling data access, data inference, data harmonization, data analysis, data visualization, data sharing, and insight collaboration. Gartner’s take: “ClearStory is positioned in the Visionaries quadrant for its debut in this Magic Quadrant, because it is innovating and delivering platform capabilities plus interactive business-oriented and collaborative storyboards that address business users' urgent, growing and insatiable thirst for insights from increasingly complex combinations of different types of data.”
