Ventana Research Ranks Yellowfin a Value Index Leader in 2021 Value Index for Analytics and Data

Yellowfin, the only analytics vendor that combines industry-leading action-based dashboards, automated discovery and data storytelling, today announced it has been ranked a Value Index Leader in Ventana Research’s report, the 2021 Value Index for Analytics and Data.  

The latest report evaluated the maturity of 18 software vendors, their products and value for enterprise use in analytics across seven evaluation categories. Technology vendors that score in the top three in any category earn the designation Value Index Leader. Yellowfin has done so in two of the categories: Adaptability and Manageability. The results have additionally categorized Yellowfin as an Innovative Vendor. 

The Adaptability category assesses the degree to which system functioning and applications can be shaped to customer specifications via configurability and customization while still maintaining integrity of integration across the worker, business, processes, application and data. Adaptability is also related to the ability to readily integrate with other systems and support bidirectional data flows with other processes and systems. 

“We are thrilled with this latest recognition from Ventana Research around our continued innovation in the analytics space,” said Glen Rabie, CEO of Yellowfin. “To rank #1 in Adaptability further validates what we know to be true about embedded analytics; that it has evolved significantly and that organizations today need contextual analytics — data, visualizations, dashboards, predictive analytics and actions embedded directly into their core workflows — to guide users in their decision-making at the point of consumption within their systems.” 

“Our research shows that many organizations want analytics embedded into the operational systems,” said David Menninger, SVP & Research Director of Ventana Research. “Embedded analytics makes it easier for line-of-business business workers to access the information they need without having to access a different system. Congratulations to Yellowfin for being a Value Index Leader in Adaptability and making analytics adaptable for a broader set of organizations.” 

According to Ventana Research, “By 2022, more than one-half of line-of-business personnel will have immediate access to cross-functional analytics embedded in their activities and processes, helping to make operational decision-making more efficient and effective.” 

This latest recognition comes on the heels of Yellowfin being recently recognized as a Visionary for the second consecutive year in Gartner’s 2021 Magic Quadrant for Analytics and BI Platforms.
