Salient Listed in ‘Magic Quadrant’ For Business Intelligence

HORSEHEADS, N.Y. -- Salient Management Co., an organizational performance management firm that developed Business Intelligence technology to help retailers, DSD suppliers and CPG manufacturers improve efficiency and profitability, has been positioned by Gartner Inc. in the "Niche Players" quadrant of the "Magic Quadrant for Business Intelligence Platforms," the company reported.

In the Gartner research report, Salient was evaluated as a market player based on its "ability to execute" in areas such as product/service; overall viability; sales execution/pricing; market responsiveness and track record; market and customer experience; as well on its "completeness of vision" in terms of market understanding, product strategy, business model and innovation.

"We believe this recognition confirms our mission of 25 years to enable every decision-maker enterprise-wide to bring value intelligence into any situation in time to impact the business and improve efficiency," Guy Amisano, Salient President and CEO said in a released statement. "But we are not resting on our laurels. Our new version, which is due out this spring, will include several new user-driven features that will further enhance our visual data mining and knowledge sharing capabilities."

To be included in the Magic Quadrant, vendors must deliver at least nine out of 13 capabilities detailed in Gartner’s Market Definition/Description under the categories of integration, information delivery, and analysis. Candidates must also be able to obtain a minimum of 20 customer survey responses that use the vendor platform as their enterprise BI platform.

The Salient solution allows users to pull the information they need as soon as they need it and in the format they require, and lets them continue asking questions and pulling answers so that they can achieve peak business performance, according to the company.

"Our system measures the effect of managerial actions on outcomes, and enables managers to convert this knowledge into better decisions," Amisano, a former soft drink bottler who developed the Salient technology to help him run his business more profitably said in a released statement.

The result is control over resources, which translates into less waste and better performance, the vendor reported.
