Bardess’ data discovery tools provide the means of presenting relevant data to senior management, financial executives, sales, operational managers, etc. at the proper level of detail and within the required time period. In addition, Bardess ensures that critical revenue information is available for reporting through closed-loop processes that deliver the information in a timely manner.

For Data Discovery, Bardess can help you decide what tool best meets your business needs. The best in class tools that we recommend are Qlik Sense, QlikViewSpotfire (Tibco), and Tableau.


Qlik Sense
Bardess provides top tier consulting on all areas related to Qlik Sense.  As an early adopter of Sense, and a key partner of Qlik, Bardess brings deep expertise to the implementation of solutions with Sense. We approach Sense as one part of the ecosystem, and a valuable platform for working with data in a managed and extensible way.


QlikTech secured its coveted position in the Gartner Magic Quadrant Report for BI, 2012 Leaders’ Quadrant based on completeness of vision and ability to execute. QlikTech has disrupted the BI industry by empowering all business users with interactive data analysis instead of static reports. The company is now leading the social BI trend that leverages the power of the collaborative decision-making for a group, organization, or department to accelerate better decisions with greater alignment and transparency.


Tibco Spotfire
Gartner, Inc. recently examined the most critical capabilities that enterprises should consider when selecting a business intelligence (BI) platform vendor in its report “Critical Capabilities for Business Intelligence Platform Integration.” After rating 13 BI platform products against a predefined set of criteria, TIBCO Spotfire garnered a score of 4.3 out of 5.0 based on eight critical capability areas that factored into overall product viability. The Critical Capabilities report is a comparative analysis which scores competing products against a set of critical differentiators identified by Gartner.


Tableau is the “sweetheart” of the Gartner 2012 Magic Quadrant delivering strong interactive visualization for analysis, dashboards, information delivery and managed analytic applications. It has gained overwhelmingly positive customer feedback regarding ease of use, functionality, product quality, product performance, support, customer relationship, success, and achievement of business benefits. Tableau provides purpose-built, business-oriented data mashup ETL capabilities with data connectors that leverage drag-and-drop operations. The columnar, in-memory data engine enables fast performance on large and multisource datasets and on complex queries.
