Infor named Niche Player in Gartner Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence & Analytics Platforms


Download Gartner’s BI & Analytics Magic Quadrant Report

Infor has been included in Gartner’s Business Intelligence & Analytics Magic Quadrant. Infor was named a Niche Player on our ability to support BI & Analytics competency. For this Magic Quadrant, Gartner defines BI and analytics as a software platform that delivers 17 capabilities across three categories: information delivery, analysis and integration.*

Niche Players do well in a specific segment of the BI platform and analytics market, such as reporting, dashboarding, collaboration, embeddability or big data integration, or have a limited capability to innovate or outperform other vendors. They may focus on a specific domain or aspect of BI, but are likely to lack depth of functionality elsewhere. They may also have gaps relating to broader platform functionality or have less-than-stellar customer feedback. Alternatively, Niche Players may have a reasonably broad BI platform but limited implementation and support capabilities, or relatively limited customer bases, such as in a specific geography or industry. In addition, they may not yet have achieved the necessary scale to solidify their market positions.*

At Infor, we are known for delivering robust BI & analytics solutions to a widespread global customer base. Infor continues to excel in this space with innovative technology advancements that differentiate us from the rest. With the launch of Dynamic Enterprise Performance (d/EPM), Infor provides a unique single source of the truth with an integrated platform for analytics, expanded corporate performance management, and compliance.
