Gartner Announces Winners of the Gartner Peer Insights Customer Choice Awards for Business Intelligence and Analytics

Winners Selected by IT Professionals and End Users Who Have Experience Purchasing, Implementing, and/or Using the Enterprise Solution

Gartner, Inc. announced today the winners of the Gartner Peer Insights Customer Choice Awards for Business Intelligence and Analytics platforms. The Customer Choice Awards are a ranking of vendors by verified end-user professionals, taking into account both the number of end-user reviews, and the overall user ratings. 

The BI and analytics platform market includes platforms that can be rapidly implemented, either by business users who need to find insights, or by IT leaders who want to build analytics content to meet business requirements. Business users are driving the need for new capabilities by demanding access to analysis and insights from advanced analytics, while IT wants to deliver on this demand from business users for data discovery capabilities, but without sacrificing governance. 

Alteryx is the Gold Award winner of the 2017 Gartner Peer Insights Customer Choice Awards in BI and Analytics platforms, followed by Tableau with the Silver Award, and Domo with the Bronze (see Table 1). More information on the award winners is available at

"In interpreting reviews, it's difficult for IT professionals to balance the number of reviews for a company versus a company's overall rating. The Gartner Peer Insights Customer Choice Awards are designed to help end users navigate these issues to make better purchase decisions," said Ken Davis, executive vice president of Products and Services at Gartner. "We work hard to ensure that all of the reviews are submitted by an IT professional or business user who has had experience purchasing, implementing, and/or using the enterprise solution they are reviewing — free from conflicts of interest."
