TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration and analytics, has been recognized as an overall leader in the 7th annual Dresner Advisory Services' Wisdom of Crowds® Business Intelligence (BI) Market Study, receiving a perfect "Recommend" score from customer respondents. With expanded research objectives for 2016, Dresner's vendor performance measurement system ranked TIBCO Spotfire® above all other vendors in a number of key areas. TIBCO showed strength in both the customer experience and vendor credibility fields, and was listed as best in class for product robustness/sophistication of technology, scalability, integration with third-party technologies, customization, and extensibility.



"We're honored to be leading the BI pack for our ability to innovate, but we're even more pleased to be recognized for the exceptional user experience we provide our customers," said Thomas Been, chief marketing officer, TIBCO. "Our strategy is grounded in our customer relationships and our ability to anticipate their needs. We designed Spotfire 7.0 and 7.6 to empower our customers in their transitions to digital enterprises. This report validates the progress we've made and it's a message we heard over and over at our TIBCO NOW® user conference this past May. We know firsthand how critical analytics is to an organization in the midst of a digital transformation. That's why we're so responsive to real-world operational needs and focused on providing precisely the right tools to drive more value."

Survey results showed that TIBCO's BI report score increased year-over-year with key improvements across categories, including sales, value, product, and integrity. Notably, the company was one of a few to achieve a perfect "Recommend" score—outpacing most other industry vendors.

"The Business Intelligence Market Study was designed to provide purchasers and providers of BI technology services with an apples-to-apples comparison of vendor performances, based on the first-hand input of end users," said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. "We offer our congratulations to TIBCO on its achievements this year, especially since this was our largest sampling of the market to date."

The Dresner Advisory Services' Business Intelligence Report was compiled using survey data from 1,524 respondents who participated in its 2016 Wisdom of Crowds Market Study. Respondents were sources from Dresner's research community of over 3,500 organizations as well as vendors' customer communities.
