Toronto, Canada, May, 4, 2016 - Dundas Data Visualization, Inc., a leading global provider of Business Intelligence and Data Visualization solutions, announced today that Dundas has ranked as a top vendor in Dresner Advisory Services Collective Insights™ Market Study, the latest report in the Wisdom of Crowds® series of research. Dundas ranks as a top vendor in the first edition of this report, placing second, for having amongst the strongest, most complete, capabilities in BI collaboration and user and content governance.

In this new Collective Insights report, Dresner Advisory Services examines the convergence of two related and complementary disciplines -- BI collaboration and user/content governance. The study considered all collaborative, storytelling and governance features, as reported by suppliers and weighted by users. The research is based on data collected on usage and deployment trends, products, and vendors. BI users in all roles and throughout all industries contributed to provide a complete view of realities, plans, and perceptions of the BI market.

“Having the BI collaboration and governance capabilities of Dundas BI ranked so highly in this market study confirms our ability to deliver functionality that is critical to BI & Analytics success across everyone within an organization,” said Troy Marchand, President and CEO, Dundas Data Visualization. “This research was compiled using feedback from actual users and focuses on which BI platforms provide the most complete functionality. The report provides organizations with great insight on the BI market and tools that deliver on these two significant areas of BI.”

“Governance of BI content creation and sharing is extraordinarily important to more than 90 percent of the study respondents, and shows a strong correlation to successful BI deployments,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research office at Dresner Advisory Services. “We congratulate Dundas on their strong placement in this year’s Collective Insights Market Study.”

Collaborative BI is a process where individuals in organizations work together to build and share insights to develop a common understanding and build consensus. User governance enhances the collaborative BI environment by directing content creation and sharing, thus improving information consistency and accelerating group-based decision-making.

More than 90 percent of the respondents in this report, rated governance of BI content creation and sharing as extremely important, indicating that this correlates strongly to success with BI. Another 65 percent of respondents consider collaborative BI either "critical" or "very important" and says collaboration translates to BI success. Key collaborative BI requirements addressed in the report include sharing, annotating and co-authoring. Top governance feature requirements relate to access control and sign-on.

Dundas BI’s position in this report confirms the benefits this BI platform brings by truly allowing to scale up deployments and reach more people within organizations, assuring better decision making by all.
