TIBCO Software Inc., a global leader in integration, API management, and analytics, today announced it has received recognition from Gartner, Inc. in a new Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms Critical Capabilities Report1 that gave TIBCO the highest score for TIBCO Spotfire® in the decentralized analytics use case, one of five use cases. TIBCO also received above a 3.6 out of 5 in all use cases—OEM or Embedded BI, Extranet Deployment, Governed Data Discovery, and Agile Centralized BI Provisioning.

"Today's digital businesses generate vast amounts of data that users across all departments must be able to access, analyze, and derive meaningful insights from in real time. No two teams are the same, so companies looking to get the most value from their BI applications need to enable their teams to utilize data in a way that fulfills their own specific needs," said Thomas Been, chief marketing officer, TIBCO. "Decentralized analytics provides a greater level of flexibility across the organization, allowing users of all skill levels to perform data discovery and self-service tasks as needed. We're thrilled to get the highest score in this category and believe it serves as a testament of our commitment to helping users of all backgrounds meet their business intelligence goals."

In its report, Gartner explains that the "BI and analytics platform market has undergone a fundamental shift away from more IT-centric solutions to business-user-driven solutions… There is a significant change in how companies are satisfying their governed reporting requirements: Companies are asking if the data discovery tool can be used to fulfill the full spectrum of BI and analytic requirements. They would like to leverage the higher ease of use, higher business benefits, and lower cost of ownership to deliver enterprise reporting requirements."
