Stevie Award judges nominated Noetix based on an essay submission detailing the exciting year the company experienced in 2009 including record profitability in the first half of the year and the acquisition of business analytics company, Jaros Technologies Corp., in October. Noetix also introduced Noetix Analytics for Oracle E-Business Suite, an affordable packaged analytics solution that significantly reduces the manual effort of implementing a data warehouse. This new addition to the Noetix family of products supports the company’s dedication to maximize customer investments in enterprise applications as well as other BI tools. More importantly, it provides a data warehousing solution to meet the long-term needs of Noetix customers.
Tableau Software today announced that Tableau was named as a gold medal winner of the “2009 Editors’ Best Awards” in the Business Intelligence and Reporting Tool by Penton Media’s SQL Server Magazine.
Tableau’s BI suite brings dashboards and data visualization to organizations of all sizes. Award-winning Tableau Desktop lets people create interactive reports, dashboards and visualizations using an easy drag & drop interface. Tableau Server, also an award winner, is a complete web-based business intelligence solution.
“Our win as Best Business Intelligence tool is attributable to the fact that we are invading an industry dominated by complicated, expensive solutions and providing a fun, rapid-fire alternative,” said Christian Chabot, Tableau’s CEO and co-founder. “Now more than ever, companies need rapid access to business analytics. At the same time, few can afford traditional business intelligence platforms with high fees, complicated architectures and long roll-outs. Customers tell us that Tableau is a new kind of BI – rapid-fire BI – that gives people of all skill levels the power to build and share data visualizations and fast analytics in just minutes.”
My takeaway was that the Top 4 vendors [Microsoft, Oracle, SAP and IBM] of this list are already biggies in the Business Intelligence world. And that’s another evidence that BI is the way to go in the coming years.
