Quantivo Offers High-Volume Customer Analytics at a Modest Price

Customer Experience Matrix

Acquisitions by enterprise software giants have opened opportunities for smaller, more nimble alternatives. Support for multiple hierarchies and queries across hierarchies also minimize the price of making a bad decision during initial schema design, since even unplanned queries will execute reasonably efficiently. Quantivo pricing starts at $2,000 per month and is based on data volume and complexity. These are exciting times in the world of analytical systems.

OpenBI Finds Success with Open Source BI Software

Customer Experience Matrix

It was particularly relevant because I’ve also been watching an IT Toolbox discussion of BI platform selection degenerate into a debate about whose software is cheaper.

As I’ve mentioned before, Alterian has pursued a relatively quiet strategy of working through partners—largely marketing services providers (MSPs)—instead of trying to sell their software directly to corporate marketing departments.
