SAN FRANCISCO — September 28, 2015 — GoodData®, the leading provider of business intelligence for data monetization to enterprises and ISVs, today announced it was cited as a Leader in the The Forrester Wave™: Agile Business Intelligence Platforms, Q3 2015 report by Forrester Research, Inc. In this evaluation, GoodData earned the highest scores possible for client feedback and vendor commitment, as well as among top-three highest scores for IT-enabled and self-service features within the current offering category (second and third highest, respectively).
The Forrester Wave on Agile BI is based on scores for strength of current offerings, strategy and market presence. The report states that “the agile BI market is growing as application development and delivery professionals focus on supporting business agility” and that “business user BI self-service is the key differentiator in the agile BI market.”
“We know that an engaging and self-service experience is table stakes to enable end-users to be successful,” said GoodData Founder and CEO Roman Stanek. “We are pleased Forrester Research has recognized what we consider to be GoodData’s powerful guided analytics experience and secure, scalable platform, which are key drivers of platform adoption and engagement.”
According to Forrester Research in the Agile BI Wave, “GoodData appeals to buyers who are looking for a single Agile and integrated enterprise end-to-end BI platform that resides in the cloud, and therefore, takes the burden of maintenance, support, and upgrades away from enterprise technology professionals.”

“It takes a powerful engine to handle the data demands of a company of our size. GoodData went beyond traditional BI solutions, taking us from zero-to-insight in record time,” said Discovery Communications Director of Analytics, Param Ghangas.
