Business Analytics continues to drive Business Intelligence. On February 5, 2013, Gartner released their 2013 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms. Gartner has improved the accuracy of the title from simply "Business Intelligence Platforms" to "Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms". This strengthens and emphasizes the evolving role of business analytics within organizations.
For the first time, Tableau has been positioned as a "Leader" in the Magic Quadrant. The move from Challenger to Leader in just a year provides evidence that Tableau is constantly seeking feedback and improving their product within a timely manner. From real-time to data drilling, Tableau exceeds expectations. CFO Rapid Fire is proud to be the analytics leader in the middle market restaurant and retail arena. We strive to keep our clients on the cutting-edge on all avenues. "The Gartner 2013 Magic Quadrant validates exactly why we selected Tableau from the beginning," states Meg Potts, partner CFO Rapid Fire. "We believe Business Analytics is THE key component every executive needs to make real-time data-driven decisions for success."
