"Yellowfin has dominated the Innovation category of BARC's The BI Survey for the past five years, emerging as the top ranked BI solution for its vendor Peer Groups again in 2016," said Yellowfin Co-Founder and CEO, Glen Rabie.  "Combined with Yellowfin's renowned ease-of-use, our approach to empowering business users with unique collaborative capabilities supports high levels of user adoption.  The BI Survey 16 found the average proportion of employees using Yellowfin within an organization was 33 percent, compared to an average of 17 percent for all products assessed."

Identified as a BI platform that has "consistently top-ranked in Innovation", Yellowfin has ranked first in The BI Survey for the complex 'Innovation' KPI -- within the Self-service reporting-focused products Peer Group and Americas-focused vendors Peer Groups -- every year since 2012.  Yellowfin also ranked first for the Innovation KPI within the 'Dashboarding-focused products' Peer Group from 2012 to 2015, placing second in 2016.
