Gartner Magic Quadrant: GoodData a Strong Player with Shortcomings

Gartner recently released the 2015 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms. In its report, GoodData was identified as "a strong player in the Niche Players quadrant" as a cloud BI and analytics specialist. GoodData's strengths include offering customers an end-to-end business analytics platform-as-a-service solution for data integration, data warehousing and BI, with above-average scores for breadth of use. As a result, GoodData's average report development time is 3.1 days, faster than the average of 4.0 days for the vendors in this Magic Quadrant.

According to Gartner, its shortcomings include the lack of ability to decentralize BI use case and "is less well-suited for analytic dashboards, business user data mashups, collaboration and free-form interactive exploration".
