“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom … it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair …” Of course that’s the renowned beginning of Charles Dickens’ 1859 historical novel, “A Tale of Two Cities;” but it could equally describe a company at the on-ramp for a business intelligence initiative.
Consistently in our annual Wisdom of Crowds® Business Intelligence Market Study, survey respondents state that making better decisions is their primary goal for business intelligence. Or, as a participant in my weekly #BI Wisdom tweetchat sessions stated, the top goal is “making better decisions — faster.”

It’s a question that arises frequently in businesses, especially when the news headlines point out that an important analysis was based on a statistical spreadsheet error. (See, for instance, the April 19, 2013 Financial Times blog, How much of Reinhart/Rogoff has survived? on an error in the foundational computation on public sector debt ratios.)
In my weekly #BIWisdom tweetchats, participants frequently banter about the pros and cons of spreadsheets in the business intelligence world.
Our 4th annual Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence market study has been released to enterprise licensees.
This year’s edition has 106 pages of in-depth market analysis, with 80 charts and tables and 23 vendor rankings!
