The Gartner 2014 Advanced Analytics Quadrant is out now. Well it is if you can find it.
Some of the companies have put it up on their websites to promote their position.
For some reason Oracle hasn’t and I wonder why?
You can see that some typical technologies are missing from this, but this is to be expected. How much are companies really deploying these alternatives on real problems and in production. Perhaps the positioning of Revolution Analysis might be an indicator. At some point there might be a shift from investigative analysis into more main stream projects and then into production.
What is still evident from this years quadrant is that SAS and IBM (SPSS) still have very dominant positions and perhaps will have for some time to come.
It will be interesting how this will all play out over the next few years.
