April 2022 Newsletter

April 5, 2022

Happy Spring! Here’s a recap of current activity at Dresner Advisory.

Market Studies

We recently published the inaugural People Analytics Market Study as well as our 11th annual Cloud Computing + BI Market Study. The analysts are now working on the Self-Service and Guided Analytics reports, which are both slated for April publication.

A current list of 2022 market study titles and projected publication dates is on the welcome page of the portal.

Your client copies of all Market Studies can be downloaded via the client portal. As a reminder, you may share reports within your organization e.g., distribute it via email or host on your own internal portal. If you have questions about usage and distribution, please let me know.

Research Insights

Research Insights are our thought leadership reports covering a wide range of topics to help keep you abreast of key developments in the industry.

Here are some recently released titles:

  • Make Data Literacy the Foundation of Your Data Culture
  • Is Sales Performance Management Software Approaching an Inflection Point?
  • The Value of Data Warehousing Persists
  • EPM Fragmentation Creates Additional ADI and ODI Challenges for Data Leaders

Future Research Insights will cover EPM and AI, the Hyper-Decisive Maturity Model, and an update on the Impact of Covid. If you have elected to include these in your subscription, you will see the full list of completed Research Insights posted on the portal; as with the Market Studies, you can download and leverage them within your organization.

As a reminder, the portal includes a feature to allow readers (vendors and users) to rate Market Studies and Research Insights using 1-5 stars. You can also enter comments. Please take a look and rate your favorite research.

New Year Data Collection

End user data collection is coming to a close and we are starting to publish reports based on this new data. We appreciate your outreach efforts during this data collection program.

Vendors: If you are still working to collect customer input, please remember to encourage your customers to rate you in the appropriate section(s) of the end-user survey.

Check In Calls

If we’ve not had a chance to touch base and discuss how you’d like to leverage your analyst advisory units, please let me know. I’d be happy to schedule a short check in call to brainstorm ideas.
