“The decision management platform has only emerged in the past few years,” said Brian McDonough, research manager, Business Analytics Solutions, IDC. “We expect rapid innovation in product functionality over the next five years but organisations can feel confident that they can see real and impressive business benefits from any of these solutions today.”

And by using the cloud to remove the barriers to adoption, we are enabling organisations of all sizes to base their operational decisions on Big Data analytics, rather than subjective experience or mere guesswork.”

The research methodology utilises a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor’s position within a given market. The Capabilities score measures vendor product, go-to-market and business execution in the short-term. The Strategy score measures alignment of vendor strategies with customer requirements in a 3-5-year timeframe. Vendor market share is represented by the size of the circles. Vendor year-over-year growth rate relative to the given market is indicated by a plus, neutral or minus next to the vendor name.
