Dresner Advisory Services to Initiate 4th Annual Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Survey

Annual Assessment of Vendors and Customers Expanded to Explore Additional Technology and Deployment Trends

NASHUA, NH--(Marketwire - Feb 18, 2013) - Dresner Advisory Services today announced data collection is open for the 2013 Wisdom of Crowds® Business Intelligence Market Study, an annual examination of the state of the business intelligence (BI) marketplace. The study is based on data collected on usage and deployment trends, products, and vendors. BI users in all roles and throughout all industries are invited to contribute their realities, plans, and perceptions of the BI market.

The 2013 report will build on previous years' research and will expand to test perceptions and intentions related to 20 different areas of BI-related technology. In addition, the report will rank relevant vendors and products, providing an important tool for organizations seeking to invest in BI solutions. 

The survey can be found at and will remain open until March 29, 2013, at 5PM ET. Bona fide participants will receive a complimentary copy of the study findings.

"We believe the Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market study is the most complete BI report on the market," said Howard Dresner, founder and Chief Research Officer at Dresner Advisory Services. "Ours is amongst the most inclusive research projects, welcoming input from as many end users as possible. If you are a BI user, there is no barrier to making your voice heard, and we encourage you to participate."

"In addition, we have the agility to expand and update the survey annually to reflect recent shifts in the market and cover emerging trends," continued Mr. Dresner. "Our readership relies on this annual fresh take on the BI market."

The 2013 survey has significantly expanded the user trend section including targeted roles, drivers, and overall penetration of BI within organizations. This year's study aims to rank more vendors than in previous years and offer updated segmentation that reflects an increasingly dynamic market.

Howard Dresner will use his weekly #BIWisdom Twitter tweet chat, held every Friday at 1PM ET, to begin to share information related to this study, starting on February 22. BI users, both IT and business, are invited to participate in the tweet chat to share their experiences first hand.
