HORSEHEADS, NY--(Marketwire - Feb 19, 2013) - Salient Management Company, a performance management firm that develops business intelligence technology and services to help its clients improve efficiency and profitability, has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in its 2013 Magic Quadrant for "Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms." Salient was evaluated based on its completeness of vision and ability to execute.
In 2012, Salient unveiled its Salient Collaborative Intelligence Suite 5.0, a new standard for user-driven investigation, discovery and communication across the entire organization and beyond. "The Salient 5.0 Suite represents a major shift in emphasis from individual analysis to a truly collaborative environment," says Guy Amisano, Salient CEO. "Everyone can have the information they need at their fingertips and at all times, and it's shareable and usable everywhere. It's in the format they want and on the device most convenient to them. Any question can be answered in seconds."
This year Salient launched version 5.5, with several significant user-driven enhancements, including dynamic collections, bookmark/supermark/storyboard enhancements, context enhancements and ease-of-use and appearance. "With 5.0 we made knowledge sharing and collaboration possible across the entire enterprise. With 5.5 we made the process even easier," says Amisano.
Increasingly, Gartner sees more organizations building diagnostic analytics that leverage critical capabilities, such as interactive visualization, to enable users to easily drill into data to discover new insights. Gartner also noted that "the ability to find patterns, correlations and insights across multistructured data will become a mainstream requirement as companies try to better innovate and find operational efficiencies across business processes that leverage data."
