I wanted to know which BI tool is widely used in the industry, please share the details with category wise.
Everyone tells that their tool is great and will meet customer demands.
I have heard Tableau, Qlikview and Spotfire are the fore runners.
I want an honest opinion/comparision between the top 5 tools with latest information like market share and usage and demand; will be highly appreciated.
Thanks in anticipation,
you might want to take a look at this comparison of BI tools by Gartner:
No offence intended Ven but this may not be the best place to ask that question, it is after all a community of qlikview users, developers and designers. Also what tool is best depends on many factors including what you want to report, how much analysis is required, the skills your users/developers have, how interactive you need the system to be just to highlight a few.
Of the ones you have mentioned I have only worked with Qlikview but I have used several other reporting tools and bespoke databases all products have their limitations and strong points and just because a product is used more doesn't make it the best solution for your needs.
I would suggest you to read gartner report by click here. And then decide at your own way. Everyone here may not reply to you post while this one is not QlikView issue.
