Decisyon Inc., provider of the industry’s only unified, collaborative business intelligence (BI) and performance management platform, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has recognized Decisyon as one of the “Interesting Vendors” in its 2014 Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence and Analytics Platforms* report.
In the annual report on the state of business intelligence and analytic solutions, Decisyon was the only vendor listed in the “Collaborative Decision Making, Collaborative BI and Collaborative Performance Management” section. According to Gartner, “Collaborative decision making and collaborative BI offer great potential to finally close the gap between BI and decision making by facilitating intelligent collaboration, sharing and capture of the interactive decision process to enable more transparent, high-quality decisions.”
“Our customers tell us that collaborative BI and performance management offers their companies new ways to effectively accelerate their businesses from insight to action,” said Ron Rose, CEO, Decisyon. “This new seamless unification of collaboration, analytics, planning and execution is a powerful combination which is transforming their business processes, creating competitive advantages, and increasing their speed of innovation.”
Earlier this year the company introduced Decisyon 360, a business user-oriented collaborative BI and performance management platform that is creating dramatic improvements across multiple departments and operational systems. Operational planning processes that often took months are now being completed in a matter of days. Davide Pellegatta, Planning, Control & Services Vice President, Saipem, subsidiary of Eni S.p.A said, “The HR planning application we developed using Decisyon has helped reduce the time required for the HR planning process by up to 35%. It automatically performs planning data collection, aggregation and ensures that data gathered from planners have a single, consistent scheme. The Decisyon planning and analysis application required a much shorter implementation time.”
Decisyon is a Silver Sponsor of the Gartner BI and Analytics Summit 2014, which will be held March 31st – April 2nd in Las Vegas (Booth 122). Decisyon is hosting “How Collaborative BI Transformed Janssen’s Supply Chain Management” a solution provider session featuring speakers from the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson and Johnson on Wednesday April 2nd.
