Long-term readers of this blog will know that we've supported for many years the BI Survey, an independent survey of BI tools customers and implementors. Rittman Mead have no (financial or other) interest in the BI Survey or its organisers, but we like the way it gathers in detailed data on which tools work best and when, and it's been a useful set of data for companies such as Oracle when they prioritise their investment in tools such as OBIEE, Essbase and the BI Applications.
Anyway, here's the invite text and link to the survey:
"Join over 2,000 other Business Intelligence professionals and take part in The BI Survey 13, the world's largest annual survey of BI users.
All participants will:
- Receive a summary of the survey results
- Be entered into a draw to win one of ten $50 Amazon vouchers
- Ensure that your experiences are included in the final analyses
Who should participate?
Business and technical users of BI products, as well as business intelligence vendors and consultants are all welcome to take part.
Share your experiences
This is your unique chance to benchmark the experiences of your organization against thousands of others.
The majority of the Survey relates to your experiences with the BI product that you use the most, enabling us to analyze and compare the most popular BI products on the market in detail.
Your answers will only be used anonymously, and your personal details will never be passed on to vendors or other third parties."
