May 2022 Newsletter

May 3, 2022

Here’s a recap of the recent activity at Dresner Advisory.

New Website!
We’re very excited to announce that we have launched our new public Dresner Advisory website – focused upon our Data Leaders Program and our growing community of end users. Among other things, the website includes photos and bios for our team, as well as research agendas and summaries of market reports and Research Insights.

This does not change the client portal that you currently use for access to Dresner research.

Market Studies
Last week we published the Self-Service Business Intelligence and Guided Analytics® thematic reports. Your client copies of all Market Studies can be downloaded via the client portal. If you have questions about usage and distribution, or need help accessing the portal please let me know.

Our analyst team is currently working on the 13th annual Flagship BI Market Study, which will be published at the end of the month. June’s reports will include Data Catalog (6th edition) and the Flagship Enterprise Performance Management (8th edition).

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

Shortly after publication of the BI flagship, we will have BI Vendor Insights available to those that have included them in their subscription. These provide a detailed examination of individual vendor and product performance and we will publish these for those included in the BI flagship report.

I’m happy to arrange a call to discuss Vendor Insights in more detail if you are interested in learning more or adding these to your subscription for promotional or competitive purposes.

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:

  • April 2022 Update on Covid-19 Impacts to Businesses, Projects, and Budgets
  • Leverage the Hyper-Decisive® Maturity Model to Improve Risk Planning and Make More Data-Driven Decisions
  • Success with AI/ML in EPM Starts With a Solid Business Case
  • Make Data Literacy the Foundation of Your Data Culture
  • Is Sales Performance Management Software Approaching an Inflection Point?

Future Research Insights will cover business decision-making, Updates to the BI Value Index® and BI Success Index®, and SIs size and budgets. If you have elected to include these in your subscription, you will see all 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 rating feature for both vendors and users. Let us know which reports are your favorites, and feel free to enter comments as well.

Check In Calls
We have been working to schedule regular check in calls with everyone. 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.

Thank you again for your ongoing support!

Best regards,
