IBM, Microsoft and Oracle top Gartner's business intelligence platform rankings

SearchDataManagement.com, Jeff Kelly, News Editor

The economy may be in recession, but the business intelligence (BI) platform market is still on pace for growth over the next three years, according to Gartner Inc.

In its recent business intelligence Magic Quadrant report, the Stamford, Conn.-based research firm predicted the BI platform market will grow by 7.9% through 2012, buoyed by companies looking to weather the economic downturn via improving efficiencies and reducing waste through BI and data analytics.

That's a slightly lower growth rate for BI platforms than Gartner predicted at this time last year, but still higher than many other software markets that have been hit hard by the downturn in corporate spending.
