Gartners Magic Quadrant for BI Platforms 2018

A quick visual analysis of the 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for BI and Analytics Platforms. This analysis first appeared on a personal blog on February 26, 2018.

Tableau and Microsoft stay the leaders.

Qlik wins on the X-axis 'completeness of vision' and is the third vendor in the Leader quadrant.

MicroStrategy wins on the 'ability to execute' Y-axis and is the only vendor in the Challengers quadrant.

ThoughtSpot wins significantly on both axis.

Sisense and Salesforce move in the same direction, just as they did in 2017.

The large vendors SAP, IBM and SAS stay in each others vicinity and drop a bit on the Y-axis.

The quadrant only lists 20 instead of 24 vendors: Looker appeared as of 2018 but Alteryx, Clearstory data, Datameer, Pentaho and Zoomdata dropped out.
