    Gartner BI & Analytics Magic Quadrant 2016: Participants Needed

    As part of their yearly research in the BI and Analytics market, industry analyst firm Gartner will be conducting a survey of users of BI and Analytics platforms in early Q4 2015. The survey is expected to collect information in the areas of tool functional strengths and gaps, as well as vendor’s support and sales processes. It will support the next issue of the Magic Quadrant for BI and Analytics Platforms to be published in 2016. As you know, Gartner Magic Quadrant reports are often used by companies to better understand the market and the vendors they are evaluating for their business.

    As a valued customer of SAP using SAP Lumira in your organization, we’d be pleased to have you supporting this process.

    Your participation to this 20-30 minute Web-based survey will provide valuable insights to Gartner on how SAP Lumira is being applied to drive further innovation and vision for the market. The data collected will be kept strictly confidential. This is not a request for public endorsement. In appreciation of participation, Gartner will send you copies of MQ research notes highlighting data from the survey.

    If you are interested in participating or if you just need more information about this Gartner survey, please sign up online here, and an SAP product expert will contact you to confirm your participation or address your need for more information. You may also contact Thierry Audas, Sr. Director, BI Product Marketing, by email.

    Your participation and feedback to Gartner is very important to SAP – we appreciate your contribution.
