The BI Survey 12 uses the Business Benefits Index, a unique system designed to measure the true business benefit delivered by BI products. By measuring indicators such as increased revenues, saved headcount and ability to make better business decisions, we have rated each one of the 27 market-leading products covered in The BI Survey 12 to reveal exactly how beneficial they have been to the organizations that purchased them.
Some products may come with a reputation for being expensive, and some are perceived as cheaper, but often these conclusions are reached without taking into account the wider costs of implementation. We analyze the license fees and actual implementation costs of 27 leading products and rank them according to their total cost of ownership per seat deployed.
