Pyramid Analytics Wins 2015 Dresner Advisory Services Industry Excellence Award for Overall Leadership

The Award Recognizes the Company's Ranking in the 2015 Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Study

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Oct 13, 2015) - Pyramid Analytics, the next-generation business intelligence (BI) platform for the enterprise, today announced the company won a 2015 Dresner Advisory Services Industry Excellence Award for Overall Leadership. The company continues to garner accolades from industry watchers who recognize the company's ability to provide an integrated platform for end-to-end Business Intelligence that combines self-service functionality and data discovery with governance, enterprise-class security and scalability.

Dresner Advisory Services awarded the company an Industry Excellence Award based on Pyramid Analytics' leadership status in the Vendor Credibility and Customer Experience market models unveiled in the 2015 Wisdom of Crowds® Business Intelligence Market Study. Pyramid received recognition as an Overall Leader, which honors vendors who demonstrate excellence across all categories of measurement: technology, sales/service, value, and confidence.

"The key to our growth is our deep engagement with customers. We know what all parts of the enterprise are looking for, and design our platform with them in mind," said Alberto Sutton, vice president of marketing at Pyramid Analytics. "This award from Dresner Advisory Services reinforces our decision to help companies prevent the data silos that are often created with the new wave of data visualization software."

"Our vendor credibility model considers a vendor's relationship with their customer, plotting value for price paid against a confidence score comprised of integrity and recommend measures, while the Customer Experience model considers the real-world experience of customers working with these technology solutions on a daily basis, plotting vendor touch points -- including sales and service -- and customer sentiment surrounding product and technology," said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer of Dresner Advisory Services. "We congratulate Pyramid on their performance this year."

The Dresner Advisory Services Industry Excellence Awards are based on findings from the firm's research collected from real users who work with the technology on a daily basis, plotting vendor touch points -- sales and service -- and customer sentiment surrounding product and technology. The Vendor Credibility Model considers a vendor's relationship with their customer, plotting value for price paid against a "confidence" score comprised of integrity and recommend measures.

"The award helps substantiate Pyramid Analytics' efforts to provide collaborative BI functionality that provides end users with the information they need to use and discover insights without restrictive controls, while at the same time allowing IT to centrally govern data integrity. Customers large and small continue to invest in Pyramid Analytics," said Sutton. The company tripled its customer base yearly over the last three years, and now has hundreds of thousands of users in large public, private and Fortune 500 enterprises, including banks, insurance and healthcare multi-nationals all benefiting from Pyramid Analytics' highly scalable Collaborative BI capabilities enabling shared insights, fostering consensus-building and smarter decisions."
