Dresner Advisory Services Announces 2023 Industry Excellence Awards

NASHUA, N.H., Aug. 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dresner Advisory Services today named its 2023 Industry Excellence Award winners. The annual Industry Excellence Awards acknowledge vendors who have achieved leadership position in Dresner Advisory’s 2023 Wisdom of Crowds Analytical Data Infrastructure (ADI), Business Intelligence (BI), and/or Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) Flagship Market Studies.

The reports are based on data collected from end users and provide a broad assessment of each market including current usage, key drivers, technology priorities, and future intentions. The studies also include an industry section and performance ratings of relevant vendors.

The winners have achieved leadership status in two industry-rating models included in each research report. The Customer Experience model considers the real-world experience of customers as they work with a vendor’s technology solution on a daily basis, plotting the various customer touch points against sentiment surrounding product and technology. The Vendor Credibility Model considers a vendor’s relationship with customers, plotting perceived value for price paid against a calculated “confidence” score.

“Our Wisdom of Crowds studies offer unparalleled assessments of the ADI, BI, and EPM markets,” said Howard Dresner, founder and chief research officer at Dresner Advisory Services. “In addition to a deep dive on user priorities and behaviors, the reports contain an objective rating of industry suppliers, with vendors ranked solely on the input of end users across a wide array of measures. We congratulate the Industry Excellence winners on receiving top marks from their customers in the 2023 flagship research.”
