Here's some additional preliminary analysis from the data that we have collected to date for the 2011 Edition of The Wisdom of Crowds Business Intelligence Market Study (TM).
For this analysis, we asked respondents whether they were using their BI vendor's latest product version. As you can see from the chart above, slightly more than three quarters said that they were using the most current version.
For the other quarter, reasons for not moving to the latest release included: in process now, current version suits needs, version "too buggy", no time to upgrade/ not a priority and version not available for international release yet.
We still need your help! As you are probably aware, we are in the midst of collecting data for this important study. Last year we collected data from 500 organizations. This year I am hoping to reach over 1,000 respondents! The more data that we collect, the more accurate and valuable the analysis will be.
So, if you have not yet contributed to the study process, I am asking you to join in and complete the survey today. There is nothing to buy and your detailed information will remain confidential!
The process takes approximately 10 minutes and you'll get a free copy of the findings report when the analysis is complete in May.
You can simply click on this link and go to the survey and complete it now.
By completing this survey you will be helping to create an important alternative to conventional industry analysis that is available in the market today.
If you have already filled out the survey, please accept our thanks and pass this on to a colleague!
Thank you in advance!
