SAP Business Intelligence and Analytic Market Share Trend

While working as an SAP BusinessObjects developer, sometimes it strikes me to think – how the SAP BI is working in current market and what is the future scope of this tool. I know that for the enterprise environment, where I am working, it is a perfect fit for my customer requirements. But I wonder- how it is functioning in comparison with its competitors, what’s the market share, whether dominance of BOBJ is increasing further or it is on its decline. I did some research with data available from Gartner and here I am sharing my findings.

Overall performance of SAP business intelligence in terms of market share is quite consistent and encouraging for few couple of years. It has a stake of around 21%-23% from year 2008 to 2013. Please check the yearly market share graph:

 The segment has slightly declined in 2013 but with the introduction of HANA and data discovery tool-LUMIRA- and with emphatic reviews of both tools, we should expect a growth in 2014 and 2015.
(Waiting to get 2014 data to add in the trend. Stay tuned.)

If we check how SAP is doing compared to Overall BI market and other top vendors, Business Intelligence and Analytics Software Market Grew 8 Percent in 2013 whereas SAP grew by 5.3%. Even the difference was wider in 2012.
If we talk about business of BI mega vendors in 2013, the difference in market share between #1 and #2 is huge.

SAP business intelligence has wider presence and vast customer base. With the inclusion of new tools (analytics and self-service), it is trying to align with changing trend and is expected to expand customer bandwidth along with market share. With a prediction of better BI domain growth till 2018, I feel sticking with SAP BOBJ would be a wise decision. 

What do you think?
