Yellowfin is a global Business Intelligence (BI) and analytics platform dedicated to solving real enterprise analytics challenges, and helping business people understand not only what happened, but why. Founded in 2003 in response to the complexity and costs associated with implementing and using traditional BI tools, Yellowfin is a highly intuitive, 100-percent Web-based reporting and analytics platform. Yellowfin has been included in four consecutive Gartner Magic Quadrants, the Forrester Wave, and consistently scored as a leader in key categories of the BI Survey from BARC.
More than 25,000 organisations, and more than three million end-users across 75 different countries use Yellowfin every day. Many of these people use Yellowfin as an embedded analytics layer, as Yellowfin integrates seamlessly into applications by adopting their look and feel. Butler Analytics declared, “Yellowfin is something of a breath of fresh air in the over-hyped BI market. This is a platform that will address many needs in both large and small organisations, without the pretence that everyone with a display should spend all day playing with charts and dashboards”.
The 7.4 version makes Yellowfin a complete end-to-end analytics platform. Instant insights allow business users to automatically discover why something happened without adding to data analysts’ workload. Assisted data discovery shows data analysts the most relevant and meaningful results from their queries, so that analysts don’t have to spend hours looking for pertinent data. Data transformation enables data stewards to transform their data to meet enterprise requirements and deliver more trustworthy data faster. And data-science tools allow data-science models to be utilised within the corporate reporting platform faster.
