The State Of Cloud Business Intelligence, 2020
54% of enterprises say cloud business intelligence (BI) is either critical or very important to their current and future strategies. Microsoft Azure is the most preferred Public Cloud BI provider by enterprises today. Enterprises' interest and adoption in Cloud BI is accelerating due to the COVID-19 pandemic making work-from-home the new normal. Public Cloud BI adoption plans in North America lead all other regions globally. Google Analytics and Salesforce are the top third-party connectors for cloud BI in 2020, according to the study. These and other insights are from a fascinating study recently published by Dresner Advisory Services' 2020 Cloud Computing and Business Intelligence Market Study. The 9th annual report focuses on end-user deployment trends and attitudes toward cloud computing and business intelligence (BI), defined as the technologies, tools, and solutions that rely on one or more cloud deployment models. "We began tracking interest in and adoption of Cloud BI in 2012 when the market was nascent," said Howard Dresner, Founder and Chief Research Officer at Dresner Advisory Services. "Since then, we've seen steady growth in deployments of public cloud BI applications, with organizations citing substantial benefits of traditional on-premises implementations. And, with the current COVID-19 pandemic, we expect this to accelerate." Please see page 10 of the study for details regarding the methodology.
