Against the backdrop of a looming recessionary environment in its major end-market, the BI market is witnessing a flurry of large ticket acquisitions and rampant commoditization leading to slowdown in growth rates. This report aims to provide clarity to vendors and investors in BI solutions by simplifying the dynamics of this changing market and forecasting future growth opportunities.

  • Presents Datamonitor's view on the future of the industry value chain and recommends specific go-to-market strategies for each vendor category.


The BI market has been abuzz with acquisition and consolidation activity over the last two years due to the entry of several large software vendors. Consolidation has been beneficial for most acquiring and acquired vendors but is starting to affect independent pure-play vendors.

In such a turbulent market, technology evolution has been relatively tepid but increasingly customer focused, as evident from the proliferation of bundles tuned to end-user needs. Emerging technologies such as in-memory analytics and natural language processing also look promising and expand the boundaries of BI analysis.

Datamonitor analyzes the changing dynamics of the market and calls for a re-evaluation of go-to-market strategies by each vendor. Datamonitor believes vendors should assess the diversity of end-user needs and increased competition and target specific channels to reach customers.
